Melissa’s Bio

Hello! I currently live in the Chandler/Gilbert area with my husband of 16 years and my 14 year old daughter. I moved to Arizona almost 30 years ago from a small town in Iowa. I have been a full and part time career nanny for 25 years and have helped to raise children from dozens of different families. I enjoy and have extensive experience caring for children ranging in age from newborn to teen. I like to plan age appropriate activities for the children such as, arts and craft projects, reading, or a fun outing to the park, a museum, or the zoo. I do not believe in sitting children in front of T.V. or video games all day when there are so many great activities out there to do. Having been a nanny for so many years I have experience and am very comfortable transporting children when needed. I was also employed as a Sunday School teacher for 6 years at a local church. I was responsible for planning the weekly religious lessons and activities for children in pre-k through sixth grade and although, it could be quite challenging at times having a classroom so diverse, I found it to be very rewarding. I have spent the past 6 years volunteering as the leader for a Girl Scout troop of 10 girls age 9-10 years old. My responsibilities include managing troop finances, planning interesting group activities and educational field trips, and to ensure the safety of the troop. I am Infant/Child CPR/FA certified, finger printed, background checked and can provide a certified copy of my 5 year driving record, excellent references and letters of recommendation upon your request.

Melissa is absolutely outstanding: responsible, reliable, and has that 'magic' touch with kids that few nannies or baby sitters have! She will take your child to excellent fun and educational activities as desired and never use the TV to babysit the child. As a first time parent, I am particularly paranoid about leaving my child with anyone and never once did I have a worry with Melissa taking care of my boy! My child also has some feeding issues, and Melissa did amazing with him and his quirks! If it weren't for him entering kindergarten, there would be no way I would be giving her up! She really is that good...STRONGLY recommend her to anyone who wants great care for their child/children!
