I’m Jeanine and the mother of an amazing 11 year old boy, Devin. I have always had a passion for working with children. My journey began in high school as a Y camp counselor, then in college majoring in speech-language pathology and as an Easter Seals summer camp counselor and then onto graduate school to become a speech-language pathologist. Standing on the sidewalk on graduation day from The George Washington University, my family asked me “what’s next?” My response was that I would love to open a small private practice one day. Fast forward to 2008 and that dream became a reality! I love my job as a pediatric speech-language pathologist but after 12 years, there was a burning desire to do something more and something different.
In August 2014, we visited We Rock the Spectrum gym in Boca Raton, FL. I watched my son, Devin jump on the trampoline with a child with autism and assist younger children onto the zip line. This beautiful sight of patience, love, inclusion and compassion melted my heart and solidified my desire to bring this gym to Sanford. My favorite sights during my visit to the Boca Raton location were seeing parents interacting and playing with their children on the gym floor and hearing the passion for the gym from both Dina and Gail. It was a brief but life changing visit! I dream of a place where our kids can get their developmental needs met but also have a place to feel like a child – a place to have fun!
Together, let’s ROCK Sanford and make this a great place for all children to come and have a BLAST!
