Karyn’s Bio

Hello, I am 29 year old licensed, firefighter/ paramedic and k-12 phys ed/ health teacher, most importantly, a mom to an incredible young man- age 10.

***I am open to discussing pay/ salary***

Eldercare/ Childcare/ Medical Care
-I have 17 months of experience in the er and on fire rescue ambulances. For the last year I have cared for a cardiac baby in her home from age 7.5 months on. She requires vitals monitoring and charting, medication administration, g tube feeding and maintenance, and transport to therapies and doctors.
-I have other prior child care experience with my own son, with another baby from may 2018-oct 2018, with many families in my neighborhood/ community and then when I was much younger in New Jersey.
-I was a teacher for grades k-12 for 5 years. I coached kids from age 4-18 for over 8 years.

Pet Care
I am a dog lover! I am on my third boxer because I just cant shake their crazy, loving and goofy personalities. Unfortunately two of them passed away in the last year and a half. Right now I have a 1.5 year old spayed female boxer names Yona. She missed her older brother and would love someone to play with =). Care in my home is primarily what I am looking for, but I will also do walks and drop ins at your home. I will follow whatever directions you leave for me based on your pets likes and needs. I am comfortable with medication administration and dogs of all breeds and sizes. I will not accept any dogs with patterns of or a history of aggression, please be honest about this.

Just from the applications, Karyn was 1 of the ones who stood out from all of the rest in her ability to articulate and express both her desire to watch my kids and her abilities in keeping them safe. From the beginning, I knew it would be a good fit when my daughter, who is EXTREMELY picky, hugged her. While getting ready to head out, my daughter's attention was solely on Karyn. She is punctual, always keeps you updated, and I felt comfortable leaving my kids in her care. I plan to use her as regular as possible as she is a definite keeper.
