I am Meagan, your Anchorage area LAR (Local Area Representative). I come from a culinary and childcare background, having held positions as pastry chef as well as Au Pair for several families in Australia, Italy, and Alaska. Originally hailing from Connecticut, I now permanently reside in Anchorage with my husband. I sing in a local band (Meagan Hayes and the Gamma Rays), and I’m active in the local Irish community.
My favorite thing about being a LAR
My favorite thing about being a LAR with Go Au Pair is the personal relationships I see develop with the Au Pairs, their Host Families and the children. I can also relate to the Au Pair experience first hand! A great recipe for success is a supportive agency and a real person in the local area who is there to answer questions and be an active participant in the program.
Why I love my job
My work experience has prepared me to support local families and au pairs with a unique perspective. I try to put in effort to select interesting events for au pairs and families to get to know each other, and for au pairs to experience as much of what Alaska has to offer as they can.
