Meet Karen

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hi, my name is Karen and I have been working with children in a professional setting for the past 6 years. I started as a swim instructor, teaching children ages 15 months to 18 years. During this time I have obtained training on autism and special needs. I have current CPR/AED and Lifesaving/First Aid certification. I have been a nanny for an 8-year-old for the past 9 months however the family is moving back to Charleston. I am looking for a family I can work with for a long term period. When I care for children it is important to me that they are engaged in activities that help their development. I am not the nanny that puts a child in front of the T. V. I love being outdoors doing activities such as hiking, swimming, biking, hula hooping, rollerblading, and much more. If the sun is out, we will Read more be out too. I enjoy cooking and am very passionate about my health. I enjoy finding creative and fun ways to create a nutritious meal. I love animals and am comfortable caring for pets. I love doing arts and crafts. I especially like making bracelets, sewing, coloring, painting, and chalk. I would love to schedule a time where we can meet and see if we would be a good fit. I look forward to meeting, Karen
