My favorite thing about being a LAR

My favorite part of being an LAR is meeting the aupairs from various countries. To see them come as young and naive kids and blossoming into young adults has been rewarding. I have also made nice relationships with the host families which has been welcoming!

Why I love my job

As a Local Area Representative, I have been fortunate to work with a fabulous group of professionals at Go AuPair. They have been a great support staff allowing me to provide valuable service to my host families and aupairs. I have been with Go AuPair for over a year. I started with 6 host familes in my cluster and now have doubled the capacity. I work mostly with the northshore suburbs of Chicago. Interestingly, the aupairs originated mostly from Colombia and China. Over the past year, the shift has introduced a slew of aupairs from South Africa. Fun monthly cultural events have included Lincoln Park Zoo, John Hancock Skyview Deck, Pizza night, ice skating, and next event is Freight Fest at Great America.

About me

Hi! My name is Debbie and I am a work from home mom for the past 1 years. Before that, I owned and operated a Management Consulting firm specializing in re-organizational structuring. In addition to my activities as a LAR with Go AuPair, I serve as a Senior Project Manager for start-ups in the Chicagoland area. My greatest accomplishment is my two amazingly beautiful and talented children, Joshua and Rachel. They are in middle school active with cheerleading, football, and earning Honor Roll distinctions.
