Jess C

Hi. I’m Jessica. I am 32 years old, originally from Brazil and living in Brisbane since May 2017.

I’ve been involved in child care activities from a young age as I used to help at a local church I used to attend in my hometown. In 2008 I went on a journey to be an au pair in the US. This was a life changing experience. I lived with a lovely family of two parents, three boys, one dog and two cats in Mclean, Virginia. ‘My boys’ were 5 months, 7 and 11 years old. I spent two years with this family. I used to stay home with the baby from 8 am until 5pm. We would go for walks, play outside, see the horses in the barn, play with the neighbours. Gaines was a very happy baby that I loved (still love) so much. The older boys would come home after school at around 3pm and I would help them with their homework, preparing snacks and helping them to do the chores their parents would assign to them. I also used to help with the kids laundry, keeping their bedrooms and playroom tidy. The older boys were responsible for their toys, games and bedroom but I used to help them.

I would also do some casual babysitting for the neighbours in my spare time. At the end of 2010 I went back to Brazil and started teaching English as a second Language to kids and young adults. I then moved to Rio de Janeiro to study International Relations and would teach English as a Second Language part time for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old. I had the intention of living overseas again, but I was glad to be around when my nieces were born and also to help my family looking after them.

Before coming to Brisbane I visited my American host family. It was so special to see that Gaines is now a very smart and fun 8 years old boy and the other kids actually aren’t kids anymore. Here in Brisbane I have had part time jobs in office administration and marketing done some casual babysitting. I also help with my partner’s nephews and niece.

I love arts and crafts and I play piano, which I still have a lot to practice. I also love family photography. I have done small photoshoots of newborn photography, family photography and Christmas parties photography. I live with my partner and we have plans of starting our own family in the future.

This is a little bit about myself and how much I enjoy working and playing with children. 

I look forward to meeting your family x
