Karen’s Bio

I am healthy and fit. I love the outdoors. I love to read play games, sports, go on outings and help children with homework and encourage good habits. I enjoy cooking and baking.  I'm clean, neat and honest.  As a nanny I have cared for infants, preschool age and school age boys and girls.  I know how important is to seek honest, reliable care for our most important assets. I first started watching children as a preteen, I have 7 years dealing with children as a Special Needs Bus Driver and Teaching Assistant and currently over 5 years as a nanny. Over the years I have worked with five families and will bring their references with me to an interview , in my references are only two of the families I've worked for because that is all that is allowed on this site please look at those, I will also bring the background check that I have on this site to the interview. My last position ended 9/30/2016 due to the family's financial decision which enabled mom to quit her job to be with her child full time. I have been doing as needed child care until I find a position.
As a Professional Nanny my overall responsibility is to care for and protect your child/children, as a mother and nanny I understand what your child/ children mean to you.II look forward to meeting you and your family.
Thank you, Miss Karen
  Here are some more reviews from families I worked with as a Nanny or babysitter:
Mark D. Hired Karen
Karen was a great caregiver for our 2 boys (5 and 3). She worked for us fro a few months while our regular daily caretaker was unable to work. Karen was always on time and worked around our schedule changes very well. Our boys liked her very much and she even brought over board games to play with them. We enjoyed our experience with Karen very much.

Adina G. Hired Karen
Karen was great with our girls, 3 and 1. She was looking for something full time and we had a need for only 23.5 hours. She helped us out for a few days until we found another person. She was reliable, always on time or early.

I was very happy to help out until they could find a permanent Nanny for their girls.
