Hi there! My name is Tyler and I have been a home visitor with the Jumpstart program since February of 2016. I started in the Joliet office and now I am working in the Bradley office. You can find me at many different community meetings and events promoting our program!
My favorite part of this job is being able to partner with parents to see their children learn new skills. It is powerful to be able to watch the relationship between a child and their caregiver grow and deepen before my eyes. I also really like watching the kiddos figure out how to do the tennis ball puzzle. (Thank you to all the families that let me bring this activity!) My favorite children's book character is the little Mouse in the book The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear! Madeline is another one of my favorites and I will forever dream of living in an old house covered with vines.
