Meet the Staff of LadyBug Academy


Aleksandra Razavi


Hello!  I’m the owner and Executive Director of LadyBug Academy. I grew up in Poland, where I earned a Masters in Sociology from the University of Warsaw. I also have a certificate degree in Survey Design and Data Analysis from George Washington University. I live in Arlington, VA with my two children. I’m a passionate advocate for children’s well-being, which I combine with a deep interest in business. My journey in this business began when I was searching for a daycare for my son in 2013. I discovered a stunning lack of quality care options in Arlington and the surrounding areas – and realized I had to do something about it. So I created Ladybug Academy. Working with children and running my own business has been life changing experience for me. It brings me unbelievable joy and fulfillment every single day.  I don't believe there is anything better than watching children develop, learn, and grow.  Attention to details and warm touch are our brand's essence. It is what we do! 

Jessica McIntosh

Two-year-old Lead Teacher

Hi, my name is Jessica McIntosh. I am 22 years old and from Ellijay, GA. We only had one high school – that’s how small the town is. I am married to a wonderful man named Collin. He serves in the US military, and that is what brought us to Virginia. It’s my first time living in the North. I attended college for 3 years and will finish my degree next year. I have a twin brother and a little sister who I adore so much! I am a mommy to a 4-year-old Siberian husky called Abel. He’s my pride and joy. I have a passion not only for animals but children as well. I have a very bubbly and energetic personality – silly and very loving. Whatever I do I always try to exceed my very best at it. I plan to do just that with the children I teach.
