I have experience working with newborns, toddlers, and elementary school age kiddos. This includes 2+ years of in home nanny experience as a part time and full time nanny. I have done bottle feedings/ breast milk and formula, diaper changes, nap/sleep schedules, meal prep, mealtime, potty training, bathing, nighttime routines, etc. I have driven children to events/school, extracurricular activities, as well as doctor appointments. I engage in arts & crafts, educational programs, and outdoor play. I also do light housekeeping such as kids' laundry/ dishes and playroom clean up.
I am a certified personal trainer; physical activity is important to me. I am also a health enthusiast, so cooking healthy meals and having a healthy relationship with food is also important.
More about me...I am Midwest born and raised. I moved to Colorado last summer. I live with my dog, Leo. We are very active and adventurous. Anytime we can be outdoors, we ARE! I am a certified personal trainer; physical activity is important to me. I am also a health enthusiast, so cooking healthy meals and having a healthy relationship with food is also important. I enjoy hiking, working out, doing yoga, reading, playing frisbee with my dog and exploring new places.
WHAT PARENTS SAY
“Maelan has been our nanny for this past year (2021-2022) and she is absolutely fabulous. That is only changing because our son is going to daycare for more socialization with children. I honestly cried when I had to let Maelan know. I wish I could keep her! Maelan is worth every penny. I’m a real estate appraiser and I so my schedule can change if something comes up on a weekend, and she has even helped us with last notice backup care. She’s taught my son even more than I thought was possible, she introduced him to sign language, he has advanced so far in his development with her. He adores her, he says good morning and runs to her every day. I had two nannies prior to finding Maelan and she has just been amazing. I would absolutely recommend her.” - Laurin K.
“Maelan is lovely. She was our nanny for approximately 1 year (2017-2018) until my daughter began preschool/daycare at age 2. Maelan took my daughter to fun outings, she picked up after their day and helped with dishes, she was never on the phone or watching TV, they were always outside playing and doing things together. She was very flexible to our needs at that time, I will never forget it was a time in our lives when my spouse was sick and she was able to help us with extra hours for medical appointments and things coming up. Once I ran out of gas and she came to help me! She is just so kind and went above and beyond. She was everything I hoped she would be as a nanny and so much more.” - Jessi B.
