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 4 years as a nanny. Over the years I have worked with five families and will bring their references with me to an interview, in the 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, my last position ended 8/7/2015.
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
