Our team gained Miranda in November 2015 as a Flex Newborn Care Specialist. She has over eleven years of child and infant care, including experience as a birthing and postpartum doula. She spent the past year working in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) furthering her medical background and experience. We are so glad to have her back on the TC team as our DFW Care Director!
Miranda graduated from the University of Arizona with a BS in Physiology from the College of Medicine and a second BS in Ethical Philosophy Pre-Law! Beyond her book smarts, she is passionate about advocating for families and caregivers in any way possible!
The coolest part about Miranda is that she was a Trapeze Artist in a Texas circus for several years prior to college. Now-a-days, Miranda spends most of her spare time overloading her cat with kisses and cooking new cuisines.
Melissa is the Care Director of our Tucson location, and is very passionate about matching families with wonderful nannies that fulfill their individual needs. With her adventurous spirit, Melissa moved to Tucson to pursue graduate degrees in Latin American studies and anthropology. She joined Trusting Connections as a nanny in 2012, and has been a part of the team intermittently ever since. When she was not providing care for TC families, Melissa was often stomping around the jungle in Peten, Guatemala, doing research for her dissertation at the archaeological site of Ceibal. She even ventured to Ceibal during the second trimester of her pregnancy with her son, and “wore” him in the jungle the field seasons that followed. In addition to working with children and her background in anthropology, Melissa is extremely passionate about education, and has taught courses at the University of Arizona and Pima Community College. In her free time, Melissa loves spending time with her spirited son and husband, traveling abroad, trying new things, and curling up with a good book at the end of the day (she welcomes any suggestions!).
