My name is Melissa. I have been caring for children for roughly 17 years and have cared for all ages from newborn-17 yrs old. I have also spent time as a direct support professional for an agency in Tennessee caring for large groups of special needs individuals also of all ages. During that time I received special training and certifications to assist in circumstances that can arise when providing care for others including but not limited to CPR certification. I have been focused on my office career before now however my daughter (who is about to be 13) has expressed interest in becoming an after school/weekend babysitter. So after sitting down and discussing things with her I have decided to leave the office world for a while and help her in achieving her goal. So now I am looking to babysit/nanny full time so that I will maintain a steady income as well as teach her things she will need to know and help her to further her dream of childcare. Any questions please feel free to ask! =)

Thanks Melissa! Our normal sitter was not available and Melissa stepped in beautifully and cared for our girls while we enjoyed some quality time on a date night. Melissa provided references upon request, spoke with me on the phone before we made the decision to give her an opportunity, and she even showed up early to give the entire family an a chance to get better acquainted. Our girls said that she was very nice and that they enjoyed her. We'd definitely use her services again and recommend her to other families as well.

Lula is always on time, and is always willing to stay late ( if needed). My little one loves her dearly. She knows how to read a book in a way that draws kids in. She is crafty and does a lot of fun crafts and moments for kids and parents. She has the patience of a saint and was able to take on our little rascal with grace. Thanks Lula!
