Meet The Jumping Jacks Team
I am extremely proud to be the founder of Jumping Jacks. It is so much more than a job to me and I love putting tons of smiles on faces and acting my shoe size rather than my age and I never want to grow up! My background is in health & fitness and I have worked as a fitness instructor & sports coach for the local government, schools, nurseries & professional organisations for quite some years. One of Jumping Jacks proudest moments for me was being awarded the National Princes Trust RBS Enterprise Award by HRH Prince Charles himself who said to me “Jumping Jacks looks like lots of fun!”. It was a very surreal moment and one I will remember forever. It is certainly a team effort here at Jumping Jacks ABC and we all put 100% into being the best company for you and your children.
I was first introduced to Jumping Jacks as a parent bringing my eldest Daughter along to sessions. I enjoyed the sessions so much that I decided to buy a franchise! Before Jumping Jacks I was a classroom assistant and knew the importance of the EYFS & introducing children to classes as early as possible for their all round development. I watched my Daughter grow in confidence, make friends, learn new skills and more importantly the classes gave us the opportunity to bond and spend some quality time together. I now have another baby and being a JJ Leader & Franchisee works well around my family life and I am also looking forward to going to classes with my second Daughter so I can enjoy them as a Mummy too! As a very proud Mum & Jumping Jacks Leader, I can see on both sides of the fence just how rewarding Jumping Jacks classes are!
I have been working for Jumping Jacks now since I was 14 (2012) as a princess and party assistant initially and now I am one of the lead entertainers! I also have the important role of event planning behind the scenes as I have great organisational skills and love looking after everyone and making sure everything is prepared for your special event. I am an animated and outgoing person and Jumping Jacks really brings out my crazy side (in a good way!). I am an entertainer at the weekends but I also work in a nursery as an apprentice Monday-Friday as I love working with children and caring for them. Since since starting JJ’s, I have grown from strength to strength. I have a natural ability to relate to children of all ages and have a kind and caring nature. I love working with my Jumping Jacks family. It’s such an amazing experience to be able to watch Jumping Jacks grow and I am so proud to be a part of it and work for an award winning company.
My nickname is ‘Jumping Jayne’ as I have tons of energy and love to party, party and party some more! I am up for a laugh and don’t take myself too seriously. I have always been fun loving and will never grow up so I have certainly found the right job for me! I am one of the lead Party Entertainers and I am proud to say that Jumping Jacks is more than a job to me, we are one big happy family! Since starting working for Jumping Jacks, I have had had twins who keep me very busy as you can imagine so my life is always filled to the brim, I work hard and play hard.
