Melissa’s Bio

I grew up in Urbandale, Iowa and have lived in Knoxville, TN, Boston, MA Atlanta, GA, and Lawrence, KS for both work and graduate school. I have a master's degree, a Ph.D. in Health Education to complete, and eight year of undergraduate teaching at the college level.

I have many years of experience caring for children as a full-time, part-time, live-in and live-out nanny, summer and after-school nanny, and nanny sitter. I also have years of experience as personal assistant, household manager, tutor, and house/pet-sitter. I have experience with newborns and toddlers through school-aged children. I am an aunt to five children (ages 6, 7, 10, 11, & 11), whom I care for and I grew up with dogs in the family home.

I enjoy being active with the children I care for and engaging in activities that interest them. I consider myself to be patient, honest, kind-hearted, fair and a great role model. I am also mature, punctual, reliable and very organized.

I currently work four days a week and a personal/household assistant for a retired family physician and family business owner with multiple sclerosis. In addition, I nanny for a trauma surgeon with two boys (7 and 12) and tutor, nanny sit and house/pet sit for several local families.

I am interested in out-of-state positions and am willing to re-locate. If you are interested in learning about my relevant qualifications in more detail, I would be happy to email you my resume. Additionally, I can provide references and am willing to complete any necessary background/driving checks.
