It all started when...

She also gained valuable experience working on the labor and delivery floor of a large hospital as a Patient Care Assistant, caring for mothers and newborns on the floor and in the NICU. After graduating with her degree in psychology, Jessi decided to pursue her dream of working with pregnant moms and newborns.
