Meet Melanie

  • Speaks English

Hello all, My name is Melanie! I moved up here to the PNW from Nevada a few years ago. I have a 2 year old daughter that's very adventurous and who's still learning to communicate with people. As far as my experience goes, I have a over 4 years of paid child care experience. I started off baby sitting my younger siblings, then nieces and nephews, and onto watching my friends/coworkers children! Iā€™m open to anywhere from running errands, playing with the kids, preparing meals, homework assistance, to light housekeeping. I find a big interest in puzzles, arts and crafts, and reading. I do have my own vehicle, as well as a clean driving record for any on the job driving. I'm looking for a part-time and long term position because I would like to build a relationship with the family I'm providing care for. I have built clientele over Read more the past few years and can provide you with any references you may need. I hope to hear from you soon!

Melanie is the best!! She was available on short notice and arrived early. My two year old loved her and she straightened up the house, unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher. She met with our family the day prior and is pleasant and professional. Iā€™m definitely going to be hiring her for our family again.

Melanie is a great sitter! She is prompt and responding to messages/texts, and is a great communicator. I was very happy that she was able to meet with me before hire, and it made me very comfortable leaving my kids in her care. I'm a work at home mom and needed help with my kids for a few hours to attend a meeting. She was very patient and consoled my youngest as he cried when I left and was only a room away. She made sure my kids ate their meal before offering a snack. She also went above her duties and cleaned the dishes after lunch. I would definitely recommend hiring Melanie as a sitter
