My favorite thing about being a LAR

I am the first and only Go Au Pair Local Area Representative in the Greater New Orleans area. I have been with the company for over five years. I was attracted to the position because in the past I have had the experiences of both being a full-time nanny as well as moving to a foreign country, so I felt that I would be able to relate to some of the excitement and challenges that the au pairs face. I also enjoy meeting and working with people – both those from other cultures as well as local families. I love this job and truly believe in the au pair program and what it can offer. I enjoy working closely with my families to support them in any way I can.

About me

In addition to my work at Go Au Pair, I have a full-time job as the managing editor of the Department of Medicine at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine. I have worked there for well over a decade. I also have a former career as an English teacher and have taught all ages from sixth graders through adults, though I worked primarily with high school students. I have a B.S. in English education from Boston University and an M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction with emphasis in English from the University of Southern Mississippi. I am also currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from the University of New Orleans as a way to counterbalance all the dry, technical work I do at LSU. I have been fortunate to have traveled extensively in my life, even circumnavigating the globe. I was born and raised in New Orleans but have also lived in Boston and London. While living in the Boston area, I also owned and managed a bed-and-breakfast for a while. Life is interesting, and you never know where it will take you!
