Jesika Roy joined ELC at UC as a preschool teacher in June of 2022. She received her Master of Science degree in Family and Consumer Sciences: Human Development from Illinios State University in 2007. Originally, she is from Illinois but she has been a Cincinnati transplant since 2007. Jesika has spent her career working with children of all ages in a variety of settings including healthcare, play spaces, bookstores, and mental health. Her favorite thing about working with young children is how joyful (and funny) they can be! She loves helping them discover the things in the world around them as well as how to cope with big feelings. When not working, Jesika enjoys spending time with her two sons, her two cats, and her friends!
