Meet Melissa

  • Comfortable with pets

I am a student at Rutgers University Graduate School of Applied Professional Psychology studying School Psychology. I have worked as a babysitter for over 8 years and a nanny for over 6 years. I come from a large family and am the oldest of four children. Childcare has always felt like a natural fit for me. My organized, high energy, empathetic personality combined with my passion for child and adolescent psychology creates the perfect dynamic for me to connect with children. It is rewarding not only to make a positive impact on children s lives but also to learn from them. While taking care of the children is my top priority, I value high levels of communication with the parents as well. My goal is to be an extension of the parents- by carrying out their rules, for example, so that the children's environment is consistent and the transition of Read more care is always as smooth as possible.
