Interests

About Me...

Hello, My Name is Melissa Erwin

I would like to apply for the position of Nanny (Casual)

I am a dedicated hard working person with a great attitude towards any role that I undertake. Retail has been a big part of my life. However, recently I believe a change of career path into the greater community would be a good new change for me. I believe the hours in the position advertised are perfect for me.

I have been a Foster Carer for 5 years (children have been of the ages 1 year to 7 years old). Some of these children have had their own medical problems and issues that require me to pay particular attention to foods/allergies/medications. I attend regular training for raising children. In the last 5 years some of these children have spent some lengthy periods at my house. I gave up my retail work to become a full time Foster Carer last year.  I have a daughter and 1 foster care child in my care. My daughter has been diagnosed with Autism and goes to regular Occupation Therapy and Psychology. I understand the needs of children with Autism and the practices that require them to complete basic tasks.

I am an excellent cook with a great attitude towards domestic duties.  I really enjoy working with children and being a big part in their lives.

I would really welcome an interview.
