Meet Karisa

  • Speaks Sign Language
  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! My name is Karisa Cortez and I'm from San Jose California. I'm currently living in San Francisco and I'm enrolled at the University of San Francisco. I'm a politics major with intentions of going to law school, and eventually practicing civil rights or international law. Most of my baby sitting experience comes from watching after the kids of neighborhood families, close family friends, and my younger cousins. My mom was a preschool teacher for eighteen years, and I would go into the classroom whenever I had the chance. I love working with kids whenever the opportunity presents itself. I also work well with animals. Growing up I had a dog who I walk once a day, fish, and I am the proud mom to two leopard geckos who I care for very deeply. I've looked after my neighbors' dogs, cats, birds, and guinea pigs. In high school my AP Read more Biology teacher let me have the job of feeding the leopard geckos, crested geckos, fish, bearded dragon, and sometimes her turtle. I'm comfortable with all animals and understand that they're a huge part of the family. Additionally, over my winter break (only four more weeks!) I intend on taking the time to get CPR certified. And I am a dog walker with WAG.
