Kara’s Bio

I have been babysitting since I was 12, have been a camp counselor for five years counseling children from ages five to 12. I have also worked with children with special needs. I nannied for a family 4-6 days a week in Cleveland for 2 years; the two girls are now 7 and 10. I also taught classes for children 6 months to five years at Gymboree Play & Music for about 18 months. I've just moved to Chicago to continue my Psychology degree. I am the oldest of three children and have two younger brothers, ages 16 and 18. I am CPR, first-aid, and Heimlich certified, have my license, and absolutely love children!
I love art, playing outside, cooking, and being with kids. I consider myself a responsible, reliable, person with an excellent sense of humor!
