Hi! My name is kara. I am a 24 year old mother of 1 beautiful little girl. When I was growing up I watched over my five siblings and past neighbors, as well as volunteering at the youth shelter and my churches kids group. I am a certified nursing assistant, and have the knowledge and compassion needed for children. My age range so far has been all over the place from newborn-108yrs. I am experienced in pediatrics and geriatric care giving. I currently am a Biology major at JWCC. I believe in an active life style and I don't allow couch potatoes on my watch : ) I will keep your children  entertained and safe while you are away. I have a goofy personality that kids seem to flock to, so it makes communication with them very easy. I also cook and promote good diets.  I am willing to meet Read more up with you (the parents/guardians). I first and foremost want you to feel comfortable with me, I believe we can make this experience mutually beneficial for all three of us : )  I do need to bring my child with me, but she will not interfere with the care I can provide for your child. I believe the socialization will be mutually beneficial. Please ask me any questions. I am available on short notice.    ~thank you
