Melissa Robey

Treasurer 

Hello! I am your current Treasurer/Secretary, Melissa Robey.  I first received my childcare license in August 2006.  Prior to opening my Lusby based childcare program, I was a Children’s Librarian with the St. Mary’s County Public Library system.  I utilized the Child Care Professional Development Fund to complete my Associate’s of Applied Science in Early Childhood Development through the College of Southern Maryland in 2011.  I have been Credentialed since opening my program and currently hold a Credential Level Five.  I worked through the initial Field Test/Pilot Program for Maryland Excels and hold a Check Level 3.  I also hold an Advanced Certificate in Accounting from the College of Southern Maryland.

I married my high school sweetheart, James, in 2002 and we have three amazing children.  Our sons, Curtis (17 years old) and Nathan (14 years old) are both strong baseball players and have played travel baseball for the last 5 years as well as playing for their school teams.  Our daughter, Grace (10 years old) is an amazing helping hand with my program and loves cheerleading.  My favorite way to release tension and stay active is to attend Zumba classes or run with my music volume turned WAY up.  I also love reading and camping (or “Glamping” in our air-conditioned home on wheels) with my family and friends.
