About Opposite of Far

Jessica Near-Creator/Owner:

I adore all the children in my life- nieces, nephews, cousins and friends' kids and I try to spend as much time with them as I can! I have a degree in Early Childhood Development/Education & Sociology. I was a Preschool teacher and Nanny for over 10 years, until I had back surgery(actually 2!) which kept me from working and eventually led me to start Opposite of Far! I just "get" kids, always have. 

Other details that qualify me for this job? 

  • A strong Imagination!
  • A strong belief in Family!
  • Advocate for the importance of Play!
  • A love for animals!
  • The NEED to encourage adults to play with and foster imaginative play for children!
  • Mad skills. 

I love what I do, I am proud of what I've built and I really hope Opposite of Far brings joy to your life too!
