Meet Melissa

  • Certified Nursing Assistant

Over 17 years of childcare experience ranging from newborns to tweens. I love children and enjoy contributing to and helping shape a child's life. For two years, I volunteered with a traveling youth ministry team around the United States and Canada, while learning how to be interactive and engaging with youth of all ages. I like to provide a structured environment but still allow for creativity and growth. Morality and ethical behavior are important to me. I believe that how I react and interact with children will teach them how to be responsible and moral individual. My strong sense of integrity makes me a great candidate to invite into your family life. I love to be active and enjoy field trips to the park, hikes, museum and library. I have my own vehicle and a clean driving record. Growing up in a large family, has given me the opportunity to Read more be comfortable with caring for several children at once and understand the need for individualized attention of a child. Education is an inaugural part of being a nanny. In the past, I have helped families with homeschooling and tutoring children. I like to encourage education in any way that I can from educational games to reading. My role is to support your family mission and values. Prior to seeking work as a nanny, I was a young professional. My past work experience was in medical field as a medical assistant and then as a clinic manager. I am comfortable with responding to emergency situations. My most recent work history is in social services. I am compassionate, but firm, patient and understanding. I am described as a caring, strong, fun, loving, creative person. I am excited to find the right family to serve!

Melissa is fantastic! She babysits for our two kids, and they absolutely love her! She is responsible, fun, down to earth, and playful with the kids. I always trust that my kids are in great hands when Melissa is sitting.

She did a great job, came over on less than a 3 hour notice and did a good job getting our two kids down on time for bed even though our son gave her a difficult time. Very sweet and good with the kids! Will ask her back again!
