"We’ve worked with Joell in different capacities for many years! She was a nanny of a friend of ours, and we used her for babysitting. Then she nannied for us for a time, and then we went back to using her as a babysitter. She is kind and helpful, straightforward, and extremely competent. She is obviously a child care professional, which I love. I have twin boys and Joell has cared for them as babies all the way up through pre-school age. I always felt so comfortable leaning our boys in her care."

Molly U. - Seeking Work in Portland

Nanny Molly

Portland, OR

10+ years experience

A little bit about me…

Hello! My name is Molly Elyse or M.E. for short. I have been working with children for eleven years. First I was a babysitter, then I opened my own care agency, and after college I went to school to become a special education teacher.

In my free time I love to hike, read, cook, and craft. My sister is a chef and owns her restaurant in Austin, Texas so it’s cool to learn new skills from her in the kitchen. I also recently took up lifting and have made it part of my routine.

I studied anthropology and computer science for my bachelors then I got a dual Masters in Teaching and Special Education. I love the combination of my education because it allows me to see things from different cultural perspectives.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your families.

All the best!
