Meet Karen

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am a mature, active, warm individual who loves children and has cared for my daughter ‘s 3 girls extensively from birth, now aged 8, 9, and 11. They have all greatly enjoyed the adventures I plan for them and their mother has confirmed she could never compete with my Easter baskets. Their lives have included crafts, games, reading, outdoor play, painting, and excursions to local educational and enjoyable venues, among other activities. Some years ago, between positions, I worked briefly for a new mother of twins and showed her how we could bathe both at the same time in tandem. She felt so comfortable that she left me with them to run errands. Security checks, however, now give parents more ease with allowing others to care for those most precious to us. I am also a former RN with a B.S. degree and a VP volunteer for a local Read more non-profit. Not currently working, I am seeking something enjoyable to do with my time.
