Hello Jumpstart families! My name is Alyssa Lindstrom. I began home visiting in July 2017 and started as a Parent Educator with the Jumpstart Program in May 2018. If I had to pick my favorite part about the job, it would be helping parents find everyday things they can do to bring joy to their child's life. From tearing tissue paper to messy paint jobs, we explore it all together! As an English major in college, I have a soft spot for books; however, my favorite children's book character is Carl from Good Dog, Carl by Alexandra Day. As a children's book with little to no words, there was always a new adventure every time I read the book!
