Jillian Raimondo - Roots and Wings worker
With a background in social work, I have been working with families for about 6 years now. I have worked with families with newborn babies up to teenagers and I really enjoy it all and am excited to join the John D Bracco team. As a Roots and Wings Worker I can provide a lot of different services and support, including parenting information and strategies, helping you find and access community resources, and information on lots of other topics-just ask! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my nieces and being outside in the sun. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and joining the community at John DBracco school!
