Cara’s Bio

Hello! My name is Cara and I recently moved back to Chicago after earning my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Marquette University. I am excited to start my career as a pediatric physical therapist this fall. I am looking to connect with families who are looking for a responsible, fun weeknight/weekend sitter.

I grew up in Chicago where I started babysitting for friends and family when I was 12 years old. I absolutely love working with kids and spent several summers outdoors as a camp counselor for kids age 9-14 in Southern IL. In my spare time I enjoy playing lacrosse, going to concerts, and reading.
