Kendra’s Bio

For the past decade, if not my entire life, I have continuously worked with children in one capacity or another. No matter where life has taken me, I am always driven by my passion for kids. While my nannying experience is limited, my experience with children is not.

During my undergraduate college years in Chicago I tutored elementary-aged students at a nearby elementary school. After graduation I taught special education (K-8) for students with learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, and autism in both public and private school settings.

I also have four younger brothers whom I love dearly. During my stint as the "residential babysitter," I was able to participate in their care from the time they were newborns until they started to emerge into the amazing young adults they are today.

Currently, I am in the process of changing careers. I will be taking night classes starting in January 2017.

A little bit about myself: I am very active. I run, swim, rock climb, hike, or bike most days of the week. I enjoy reading, music, and traveling. I play the violin (for fun--not seriously anymore) and I am starting to explore the joys of cooking and baking.
