  • Description


    My name is Melanie, my fiancé is Travis. Our son's Linkoln and Lennox are 2.5 year old identical twins. We have an Australian shepherd dog named Cash who is an indoor family pet. We live in the mountains in a little tourist town called Valemount BC. We live in a very central location in the village in a 3 bedroom 1 bathroom home. Our house is minutes walk to the popular Three Ranges Brewery where we love to go to socialize with friends, as well as the shopping areas in town. We have a spare bedroom set up with a queen size bed.

    My mother lives on a acreage close to town where we spend most of our free time playing outdoors and visiting with our miniature pony Apple Jack and our full size horse Milly. Our family loves to spend time outdoors. Our hobbies are mountain biking and hiking, and during the winter snowmobiling and snow shoeing.

    Travis works out of town on a 2 week on and 1 week off schedule. I own a home based Auto Detailing business as well as work at a Pub during the evening's a few nights a week. We are looking for help in the home with cleaning, cooking and child care especially during the times Travis is away at work.
