My favorite thing about being a LAR
My favorite thing is cooking. I love to cook for family and friends. I try to use seasonal ingredients and try new things all the time. I would be happy if I could just spend all my time exploring local area markets for fresh ingredients and then cooking at home. (Dream BIG, right?)
Why I love my job
I wear many different “shoes” at work. My primary job is as a home visitor in Petersburg. Providing bi-lingual services to Spanish speaking families. I teach parents skills so that they can be the best possible parents to their children. I have a passion for seeing children grow and be nurtured in an enviroment that is developmentally appropriate.
Two evenings a week I work with displaced women in a homelss shelter. This position has allowed me to grow and strengthen myself in many areas. I enjoy seeing the women progress and work towards housing.
Last but not least I am the Local Area Representative for Go Au Pair in the Richmond, VA area. This is such a fun job!!! I enjoy meeting the AuPairs, working with them and getting to know them during their time with the families. I enjoy being a resource to the families as they navigate their experience with an Au Pair.
I have always enjoyed service oriented positions whether through my career or in volunteer positions
I am a mother of four grown children. For many years I was a stay at home mom and provided child care both as a nanny in families’ homes and as an in home day care provider in my home. I understand how important childcare is for parents. I love the fact that the Go Aupair program provides an opportunity for a strong relationship between parents, the Au Pair and the children. This can bring such peace of mind to families know their children are being cared for by someone who is part of the family.
