Melody’s Bio

I have worked as a babysitter/nanny for the past 20 years. I am very energetic and creative. I enjoy making things such as art projects with the children. I have experience with autistic and diabetic children. I have experience cooking (also special needs cooking) since I was in the catering industry for 6 years. I am also available to pet sit and house sit. Additional references are available if necessary, please inquire.
Additional Qualifications:
- Plan children’s activities and outings; examples: tie dyed t-shirts, making wind chimes, stained glass windows from crayons and wax paper
- Prepare meals for the families including making dinners so that the family has extra time in the evening to relax
- Partner with the Mother on all household duties, taking initiative to fill in any time help was needed including running errands such as grocery shopping and picking up children from school
- Overnight stays with children
- Care for special needs children with diabetes; keep testing schedule, understand signs of low blood sugar, knowledge of how to test blood, and give insulin through a pump
- Gain the trust of the family and genuinely become an integral part of the household

Melody is a wonderful nanny! She is very dependable, accomodating, caring, and fun. My children love her and are very comfortable with her. She always has non-TV activities planned for the day. We would highly recommend her!

We found Melody on SitterCity 2 years ago and she has been our go-to-nanny/babysitter ever since. Melody is always energetic and is full of wonderfully creative and fun (non-TV) activities for the kids to do. Both our boys (and the neighborhood kids!) adore Melody and look forward to her coming to see them. We trust her completely in our home and with our children - she cared for our then 2 yo son for 2 weeks in our home when my husband and I had to travel overseas. She is always prompt and reliable, and has impeccable references. Melody has always worked with us re: discipline and will enforce our rules while we are gone - something not all nannies/babysitters feel comfortable doing.

We are transplants to Charlotte and do not have family to rely upon when we need childcare. Melody fills that gap for us. There is noone I would trust more completely than her when it comes to our home and our children. We feel lucky to have her.
