About Melanie

I have basically been a caregiver most of my life by chance and by choice. I helped care for my great grandmother who had Alzheimers when I was a teenager and my grandmother with Dementia. I have also had the pleasure of caregiving for a local family for the past few years, both male/female, all inclusive care, as well as housekeeping and errands. (I have safe/reliable transportation) In the past I had a very successful career in Childcare with a resume a mile long, including certifications in food service, first aid, and CPR. I even tried Dental Assisting for a while. I LOVE to serve others, organize, cook, clean, and get crafty! I have a big heart and find the most reward in making a difference in the lives of others. If you are looking for an honest, caring, positive, nurturing companion for yourself or a loved one please reach out and feel free to contact my previous position for reference.
