Karen’s Bio

I am the mother of two adult children, a boy and a girl, and believe in creating a happy and peaceful environment for them to learn, explore and be creative. I enjoyed every phase of my children's lives. I raised them in a positive, non-critical, loving home, and they have grown-up to be happy, caring and responsible adults.
In college, I studied psychology and took courses such as, Early Childhood Development.
I am young at heart and get along well with infants to teens providing a calm and respectful environment for them. I am fun-loving and appreciate the needs of children and I am a very good listener, so I learn about their likes and dislikes, quickly. I am always ready to read or play with them, and enjoy helping, if needed, with homework.
I would be happy to drive your child(ren) to their after school activities, when needed. And, I am an extremely cautious driver.
Preparing snacks and meals are no problem.
Until recently, I worked for The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Department of the Navy and have held both a Secret Clearance and a Homeland Security Clearance during the past 30 years. As you probably know, that means that I have had separate and extensive background checks for both of these clearances. However, I have also provided you with a background check through this site for your added peace of mind.
Recently, I have been taking care of a nine year old boy for 4 to 6 hour in the afternoon and evening. Helping him with homework and studying for tests; researching and helping him with school projects; taking him to his after school activities; preparing his meals; playing games with him after homework; and getting him ready for bed. I loved being part of his life. He had lots of energy and was full of fun. Unfortunate for me, his mother's situation changed and she no longer needed childcare. Please read her review on this site under 'ratings and reviews'.
Most recently, I have been a full time (40+ hrs) nanny to four children, 8 years old, 6 years old, 3 years old, and 20 months old. They are a wonderful family and I will miss their children very much, but they are moving.
I will be available mid-June for a new full-time nanny position.
Please message me with any questions or concerns, I would be very happy to talk with you on the phone, in-person, or through messages..
Thank you for your time.
