Melissa’s Bio

I worked part-time with a family for almost five years (2006-2010). They had one child (18mos) when I started and four by the time they moved to Portland! Duties were typical, childcare in addition to light housework. We're still very close and I'm currently recording them a "book on tape" so that I can still read to them, even from far away!
I also worked full time with a family for two years (2008-2010), and they had three children, who ages when I left were 18mos, 3yrs, and 6yrs. Duties included childcare, housekeeping, laundry, driving to/picking up from school, and organization.
Another position I held (Oct 2010-Sept 2011) was with a family with one adorable little girl, who was 3mos when I started, and 13mos when they moved to San Fransisco. We read (a lot!) played, went to museums, and for lots of walks to the park!
I have been working for two families for the last year and a half, they now have four children between them, two ages 2 1/2, one 6 mos, and one 3 mos.

I'm heading to graduate school in Wales in the fall, pursuing a Master's in Childhood Studies, and am looking for temporary work starting after the holiday and going until August 25th.
