Melanie’s Bio

Hi, my name is Melanie Ruhe! I'm 26 years old and from Cincinnati, Ohio. I graduated from the University of Dayton with a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and graduated from DePaul University with a Master of Public Health. I work for a national nonprofit organization now and am available most or all nights of the week after 5 pm and am free on weekends!
I have been caring for children of all ages for almost 12 years. I was a nanny during grad school for two years and watched three wonderful girls ages 2,3, and 5 for four days a week so I am very familiar with infant/toddler care and older.
I love to sing, take walks, work out, play sports, read, bake and listen to music. I grew up in a loving household with a great moral background. When babysitting, my main priority is to care for the children and to make sure they are having a safe and fun time. I am well equipped to deal with any situation or crisis as well. I am CPR and First Aid Certified.
I am available to start soon if interested.
I look forward to hearing from you and please feel free to email with any questions.
Thanks! =)
Melanie
