Lisa Thompson

About me

My name is Lisa Thompson, and I’m a Local Area Representative at Go Au Pair in Richmond, Virginia. I have 25 years of experience as a public school teacher. Over my career, I have been involved in student exchanges and worked as a teacher abroad, so I know how important it is to feel comfortable and welcome in a new country. I have been a LAR since August of 2019.

My favorite thing about being a LAR

As a LAR, I love being able to meet young adults from all over the world. I like introducing them to my city. I hope to make their stay here more interesting. I look forward to welcoming more au pairs to the Richmond area.

Why I love my job

I have a passion for travel, and I love to meet people from other countries. I get great satisfaction from learning about languages and cultures.  In my spare time, I like to hike and kayak on the James River and I spend time in my vegetable garden. I also enjoy trying new recipes with the produce I harvest. I am thankful for the opportunity to share my interests with others.
