My name is Cara and I am a mother to a 17 month old daughter named Aspen. My husband and I moved our family from the Chicago area to the St. Louis area to be closer to family. I am a caring and hardworking nanny with extensive newborn, infant, toddler, school aged and special needs experience and a passion for the arts and animals. Before starting my adventure as a nanny, I worked with animals and I have pets of my own. I own a vehicle that is capable of fitting multiple car seats and I have a safe driving record as well as being CPR certified. I am passionate about music, photography and the arts, as I graduated from Columbia College in Chicago with a creative writing degree. At Columbia College, I was part of a jazz pop choir and I have been singing since I could talk! I have a love for nature and enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible. We do a lot of reading and singing in our house! I am currently looking for a full time nanny position that would accommodate me bringing my child with me. I have extensive experience bringing my child to work with me, as I have done so since she was just a couple months old. I am blessed to have had these different opportunities bringing my child with me. It gives her the chance to bond with other children many days each week and I feel that it helps children learn tasks including sharing, taking turns and helping each other. As a patient, loving and dedicated caretaker, I am positive that I would be a wonderful fit for your family! Thank you for your time!

I have 2 younger cousins that I have babysat in the past. Also, I actually grew up with a nanny/babysitter who cared for multiple children at once, and I was one of the oldest children so I spent 5 years there watching and caring for the younger kids. The ages ranged from newborns to age 7.
