Kara’s Bio

I have been actively babysitting and nannying children of all ages for 16 years. The majority of my recent experience is with kids from newborn to early school age. Caring for kids is very second-nature for me. It feels less like a job, a more like something that I am naturally adept at. I love hands-on play, getting outside, and encouraging kids to grow and learn through whatever activities they are naturally drawn to.

Currently I am a full-time student, completing my bachelor's degree in nursing. For now, I'm looking for occasional babysitting days, but am also looking for a full/part-time nanny job for this coming summer, 2017.
