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 am a mother of two children living in Chicago. Because of them I am a very active coordinator of all things fun, educational and interesting in our family. In an earlier life I traveled overseas and was an exchange student in Germany and a nanny for a summer. My experience at being a parent, nanny and cultural exchange student gives me a broad perspective on the whole concept of cultural exchange and I am very delighted to be helping other host families and au pairs in their journey together. If you are not from my region don’t worry, I am happy to talk to families from around the country considering the program.
