I became HRS (now Florida DCF) certified in high school many years ago in the OJT program and worked for three years as an assistant site director of the after school care program with Unique School Age Childcare and Noah's Ark nursery in the summer. I also volunteered each week with the ESE department children at West Pensacola Elementary in Florida. I am now employed full time in the Children and Family Services field in Buncombe County. I have worked in the children and family services field in North Carolina and Florida for the past 10 years. I have always enjoyed working with children and their families. :)

Very nice and professional!

Melanie was great with our 19 mo. old and our baby loved her too! She sat for us for 4 evenings straight and was wonderful each time. She read & sang to our child and got her down to sleep on time every night. We can not recommend her more! Her day job works with kids & family too so she is very knowledgeable and caring.
