Meet Jessica Vonada
Hello Moms and Dads! My name is Jessica! I am a certified sleep consultant and newborn care specialist. I have always had a passion for children, especially babies! I have a Masters in Education and over 14 years of experience caring for children in a variety of settings. Since 2011 I have been primarily caring for infants, mostly preemies & twins. I have done overnight care, daytime care and around-the-clock care. Prior to 2011 I worked in an early learning center for 5 years. I also taught elementary school for 3 years and have been a nanny for several different families. From May 2015 until July 2017, I had the amazing opportunity to care for abandoned infants and toddlers in Uganda. I have a true passion for what I do and would love to help you and your family achieve better sleep.
How did I get started?
When I first began caring for infants I knew very little about infant sleep. In 2012 I did around-the-clock care for a family with twins from the day they came home from the hospital. By the time they were 6 months old their sleep patterns were very sporadic. Despite my skepticism, the mom hired a sleep consultant to help. To my disbelief, within a few days they went from waking every hour at night to sleeping 12 hours each night and taking age-appropriate naps. My doubt was gone and now I had to know more! Over the next couple of years I read several books on infant sleep and gained experience by working with more families with newborns. In 2016, I graduated from the Family Sleep Institute as a Certified Sleep Consultant and began Good Morning Sunshine LLC.
