and My Philosophy

MSc., BSc, RECE
Meet Jessica, our founder and creator who started her journey in the field of behavioural science in 2010 when she met a family with twin girls, who ultimately were diagnosed on the autism spectrum. It was through the amount of time spent with this family that Jessica began to learn the world of autism and became passionate to work with children and their families. After working for different organizations and providers, it was clear there was something missing in the field.
Jessica had a vision to offer different support services where families felt comfortable and most importantly, heard. That they had a place they could come to where they knew they would be active participants in their child’s program and felt comfortable to be open with all their hopes, fears and concerns. JM Wellness Kids was opened in 2018 with hopes of achieving that goal.
While being a member of the College of Early Childhood Educators and having received an Honoured Bachelor of Applied Science in Early Childhood, Jessica pursued post-graduate studies and received her Honoured Master’s in Science, Childhood Studies. Not feeling satisfied and wanting to do more to help families in all areas, Jessica completed the Behaviour Technician Program at the Geneva Centre. It is through her passion to help families as a whole that Jessica combines both her educational knowledge, as well as her years of direct experience working with children and families, to offer a holistic approach of support.
