Jessica Russo

I took over the program in Wayland, MA in January 2023. I am very excited for the opportunity to work with this amazing group of people doing all the things I love! In terms of education, I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Lesley University. I then went on to do my Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis at Endicott College, which I will receive my degree from in Spring 2023. I have worked in the ABA field for 8 years now. I am currently a Behavior Technician for a private company in which I consult to schools and work with families in their homes. In terms of tennis, I played for Lesley University in which I served two seasons as a captain. I then went on to be the Assistant of the Lesley University Women’s Tennis Team for two seasons before becoming the Head Women’s Tennis Coach in 2021-present. Fall of 2022, I led the Lynx through a successful season and was named 2022 GNAC Women’s Tennis Coach of the Year. In addition, I work seasonally for Watertown Recreation Department as the Head of the Youth and Adult Tennis Programs where I lead large groups of children/adults through drills, fun games, and match play. I also currently work for Waltham Athletic Club where I assist with children’s camps and clinics. Overall, I have a huge passion for helping others and for tennis, which is why I am so excited to be a part of ACEing Autism!
