About me

As a Cultural Care local childcare consultant (LCC), I invite our host families and au pairs as well as those considering Cultural Care Au Pair to explore my site and learn about what is going on in our community. I provide year-round support to host families and au pairs, and also talk to families considering the program to help them determine if Cultural Care Au Pair is the right childcare solution for them.

I have been a Local Childcare Consultant (LCC) with Cultural Care Au Pair since August 2007.

Originally from Germany, I came to the US in 1997 to work as an au pair for a family in Waltham, MA.  As a former au pair and now a mother of two, I can relate to host families and au pairs and enjoy supporting both throughout their exchange year together.  Besides being an LCC, I am a preschool teacher and run the older afterschool program at Fidelity House in Arlington. I have a B.A. in English and French and live with my husband and children in Arlington, MA.
