Melea is such a fun babysitter- she plays with my child, and is always willing to go along with whatever game my daughter comes up with. She is capable at providing meals for children, and cleans up whatever messes are made hen she is at our home. I have known Melea for several years, and she is always our number one pick for babysitter. - Valerie

Melea was a fabulous with our girls! I trusted her judgment and decision-making entirely. She provided a safe environment, kept them on-task with chores, and cleaned up after herself too. Our kids love her and were often sad when it was time for her to head back home after a full day together. - Kaylee
