Jessica Melvin is a student of Pediatric Occupational Therapy. She has been interested in the growth and development of infants and children for many years. In 2012, Jessica devoted more than 200 volunteering hours at an orphanage in Costa Rica while simultaneously shadowing an English teacher at the local elementary school. She has worked as the lead infant teacher at a preschool for over 3 years, and she recently spent 9 months nannying twin toddlers. Struggling with weight in her teenage years, Jessica lost nearly 80 pounds due to a change in her diet and an increase in exercise. Her experience has inspired her to help educate the parenting sector about the importance and availability of health conscious decision-making. In her spare time, Jessica enjoys teaching yoga to toddlers and friends, reading inspirational books, and re-creating healthy recipes.
