Hi! My name is Kari and I have a 1-year-old son. I am a bit of an arts and crafts nerd. I have a strong passion for scrap booking and I have a wild imagination. I love taking children to events at the library, for walks, bike rides, trips to aquatic centers, children's museums and a lot more. I have been working with children for over 10 years. My mom ran a daycare out of our house for 8 years, in which I was able to help her throughout the day. I also started babysitting for my first family when I was 10 years old. I worked for three different daycare centers, which gave me a chance to work with all different age groups from newborn to 5 years old. I have some experience working with a child with down syndrome. I got my first job as a nanny when I was about 15. I was a nanny for a 6-month-old, 5-year-old and a 8-year-old. I got my second nanny job when I was 23 for a family of four kids ages; 7, 5, 3 and 1. I left my job because I thought I needed something different in my life, but I quickly realized that my passion was for children. Getting to witness them grow and learn new things.

I grew up as the oldest of 14 close-knit cousins. I babysat for them and for my two younger sisters. Typically, I babysat children from ages 5-14. When my aunts, uncles and parents needed a babysitter, I was the one they trusted to take care of my cousins. I also worked at a youth camp as a volunteer counselor for a summer with middle school to high school aged children. I babysat for a boy with a mood disorder and for another boy with Asperger's Syndrome so I am well acquainted with how to care for children with more demanding needs than some.
