Meet Karen

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am a 53 year old mother of 4 adult men and a grandmother of 1. I am looking to change my career and get into the one thing I love to do, be with children. I am very warm, affectionate, patient and kind. I love to watch kids grow and learn and when that get the special excited look on their face of self accomplishment, well then you know you did your job. Right now I work full time in an office and I would love to help a family with their kids and keeping their home organized and ease their daily duties to spend more time together as a family. My hours are flexable and if needed now and again weekends would be fine.
