The areas I serve in Utah

I cover Salt Lake County, and all the way up North to Ogden and down South to Nephi. I also can cover everything going out west to Tooele and then East all the way to Coalville, which is 20 min. past Park City.

My name is Erin Mortensen and I have been the Utah Local Area Representative(LAR) with Go Au Pair since 2007. I hold a Bachelors in Physical Education from Utah State University. I live in Lehi, Utah with my husband and our three cute little boys. I love reading, traveling, being with my family, playing sports and also watching my kids do all their many sports and activities.

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!

Our current Utah Au Pairs are from Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico and enjoy our family friendly community and look forward to experiencing “The Greatest Snow on Earth”. Our Utah Host Families have little babies all the way up to early teens and they work in all kind of professions. We currently have Utah host parents in healthcare, sales, finance and accounting, legal, IT and pilots from Delta Airlines.

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 Erin’s cluster has been up to recently!

breakfast at murray parkWe meet at a park here in Utah and everyone brings a breakfast item from their home country to share. We have had Pao de Queijo, from Brazil and Empanadas from Ecuador. We chat, eat and get to know each other, by learning about the Au Pairs families, host families, everyone’s interests and what they have been experiencing while here in Utah.

holiday party at erin's houseThis is a favorite! We eat breakfast and do a fun gift exchange with the Au Pair group, where everyone brings a $10 gift. We draw numbers and you pick a gift and you either take a gift from the pile or steal someone else’s. Everyone leaves with a fun gift and the Au Pairs love it! It’s great to celebrate together and see what everyone’s plans are for the rest of the holiday season!

witches night outThis is an amazing event at Gardner village that our group has attended during Halloween time. Gardner village has dozens of locally own shops and restaurants and Witches Night Out, is an event they hold there. Everyone can dress up like a witch, join the dance party and parade or eat the yummy food that’s there.
