Melissa Hayes-Norskog



Melissa grew up in Tampa, Florida and the Northeast Georgia Mountains. Surrounded by nieces and nephews at a young age, she learned to appreciate and understand children and became interested in the field of early childhood development. Melissa later attended the Child Development Program at Bob Jones University and earned her degree there in 1999. She also has attended various workshops and training opportunities in her field.

Since then, she has successfully been the director of two childcare centers, has been an assistant director, program coordinator for a pre-school program, and still works as a professional nanny. Because of her love for children and families, and her experience as a nanny, she is dedicated to finding "just the right fit" for nannies and clients.

Melissa enjoys reading, playing board games, writing, and music. She lives with her husband, Jared, in Bellingham.
