Meet Our Founder

Hiya, I’m Karen! I have over 15 years of family and home care experience. While in college, I nannied to help pay for tuition. I had the opportunity to travel the world with families, worked in the concrete jungle, and even on farms.

I fell in love with the integral part I became in each family I worked with. Once I became a mom myself, I saw a different perspective of how much mental load each family carries. This goes beyond childcare to the never ending list at home that is so daunting you just do not know where to begin! So, Stork and Nest was born. Now the endless home tasks and childcare needs are a thing of the past.
