Greetings, I grew up with a mother (4 kids in my family) who was the neighborhood sitter and when I was 11, I started sitting also. I sat for many families while in JH & HS. After high school, while I attended Hotel-Restaurant Management School in Seattle, I worked as a live-in nanny for a prominent Seattle family with 4 children. (the eldest is now the CEO of the family company) I worked for over 5 years for a family in Redwood City, for date nights and 3-5 days overnight business trips. I have two children of my own. I have worked through SitteCity for over 5 years. One of the jobs was for a prominent Silicon Valley family with a 3.5 month old baby, for 72 hours straight when the family was between nannies. I am reliable and trustworthy, a good cook and I am happy to do light Read more housework, laundry and errands. Active and fit, and yes 64 years old. (I can hardly believe it myself. Having kids at 41 and 44 helps keep you young. (My daughter just turned 20, oh my) I moved back to PDX from SF Bay area about 2 years. I lived in PDX for 12 years, 30 years ago. Looking forward to hearing from you about your occasional sitting needs. Sincerely, Melodie Rose
