Michelle’s Bio

As a certified nursing assistant (CNA) and home health Aid (HHA), I have provided companion care for the elderly in my clinicals and training from MVLA adult school. I enjoy helping those who are in need of a helping hand or complete assistance. I have been a caregiver and Nanny for the past 12 years, but have taken a step further in becoming certified to help anyone in need of assistance with the trust and reassurance identified by law and regulations. I believe communication and quality care is the key for healing anyone who is ill or simply needs a companion by their side. It is my honor to help someone and I look forward to helping those in need.

I just had to write a review.
I saw a very unfair assessment of Michell's abilities and experience. And I wanted to post my experience with her.

She worked for us for about a year and watched my son from 2.5 month to a year. My son never was hungry, never had diaper rush, was smiling and happy to see Michelle. She taught him to speak at 10 month. Was talking and playing with him a lot. Her focus was on him 100% of the time.

I would recommend her.

I wish there was a no star option. Firstly, she claims to have 12 year experience but when you ask for reference numbers she won't give you any. Nor she has a resume. We hired her believing her sugarcoated words during the interview only to realize later that she was unable to handle my new born baby.

She didn't even know the basic rule that the baby had to be supported at the neck while lifting. When we had her bottle feed the baby she would rub the bottle nipple on the gums of the baby's mouth to have her open her gentle lips. She could have just tapped on the upper lip instead of brushing her with the nipple. Lastly, if you are not around she will make the baby sit on her lap. Imagine putting a 2 week old baby to sitting position!!

And yes, if you express the concerns regarding the mishandling of the baby, she would quit the job without saying a word upfront and later texts a big message saying her confidence is broken, She feels uncomfortable if someone points out her mistake.

If you hire her be prepared to give your LO to an inexperienced nanny. And please don't give instructions to her since she feels she is just following your orders. She thinks she is being paid to show her skills. Believe me, She said she wants to show her skills and as 'first time parents' we are not allowing her to do that.

I regret giving my little one to an arrogant and unfit nanny. I had a terrible experience with her.
