Melissa’s Bio

I grew up in Urbandale and am working on a Ph.D. graduate in Health Education. I have several years of experience caring for children as a full-time, part-time, live-in and live-out nanny, summer and after-school nanny, personal assistant/household manager and nanny-sitter. I have experience with newborns and toddlers through school-aged children. I am also an aunt to five children (ages 5, 6, 9, 10, & 10), whom I care for. I also 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 am currently a part-time overnight nanny for a family in Ankeny. My schedule is flexible and changes each month. I am available for jobs that can work around this schedule.
