The areas I serve in Pennsylvania

Central Pennsylvania is a beautiful area. We have a few major rivers, and beautiful mountains. There are cities, and country settings. Highways make travel easy!

I am a hard-working, driven and passionate single mom of 3. We are an adventurous family, so we love to be outdoors. Whether it’s traveling to a beach or hiking the local trails, taking a walk or sitting outside by a fire under the open sky is where we love to be! I have a passion for different cultures, art and anything to do with the beach!

I have a Master’s in Psychology and I pride myself i making the world a better place. I love being a Local Success Coach because this position embodies all my passions in one!

I love the Au Pair program! I enjoy working with all the Host Families and Au Pairs, helping to create a wonderful experience for them throughout their year! I’ve seen what a big impact the program has on the Host Parents, children and Au Pairs and I love being a part of that!

My Host family’s range in size, some have 4 kids, while others have 1. Some of the parents work from home, others own a business, while others work a regular 9-5. My Au Pairs have mostly been Spanish speaking young women, mainly from Brazil, Ecuador, and Colombia. They all loved their journey as an Au Pair and enjoyed the local pastimes (snowtubing, swimming, local amusement parks, traveling). Their relationship with families is incredible; they love children and are amazing individuals.

Au Pair Cultural Activities

Au Pairs are required to attend a number of Cultural Activities with their Local Area Representative and nearby Au Pairs to make sure they experience the local community and culture during their stay. Below are some of the activities Amanda’s cluster has been up to recently!

The Greek festival introduced the Au Pair to Greek food and cultural entertainment. There was dancing, arts, crafts, and food trucks. Everyone had a fantastic time! The Au Pairs enjoyed the dancing the most! 

Chocolate World was a hit! Everyone loved the free chocolate, but the Au Pairs enjoyed learning that Hershey’s Chocolate uses Coco beans from their native country, interesting if you ask me! 

Time at an arcade like Dave and Busters is always fun! The Au Pairs really enjoy seeing the kids play the games and watching their faces light up when they win prizes.
