My favorite thing about being a LAR
I am passionate about child care & finding what works best for families. I have experienced first hand with my own children the shortcomings of child care centers, home day cares & nannies and I truly believe in the au pair program & what they can offer families. This is truly a rewarding job & I enjoy working very closely with all my families to help support them during their au pair year.
Why I love my job
I graduated with a BA in Accounting from the University of Minnesota – Duluth in 21. I worked for large companies such as Arthur Andersen, GE & HomeServices of America in accounting and finance type roles for 1+ years. I started with Go Au Pair in February of 212 and have found it to be the perfect job/balance for my family. When I started in 212, we had 3 families in our network. We have since grown to 4 families in the Twin Cities.
I live in Lakeville, Minnesota with my husband of 13 years and my 3 boys: Camden (12), Gaven (9) & Griffen (6). We are an extremely sports orientated family and live at the hockey rink, football field and baseball diamond. In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, reading and volunteering in my children’s schools.
