Local Area Representative in Seattle
Go Au Pair has a Local Area Representative in Seattle and surrounding areas to help our families during their experience. Our agency local representative will assist your family and Au Pair with any questions related to your live in child care needs.
My name is Jill Virgl and I have been a “work from home mom” for the last 18 years as a local area representative for Go Au Pair. Before staying home with my children, I earned a bachelors degree in Business/Marketing and worked in the banking industry for 1 years in bank management. I have enjoyed my time working with host families and au pairs, helping them have a wonderful childcare experience, while raising my own family. I have 3 boys, who are now mostly grown, my husband and a very fun loving dog! We are a very active family and enjoy travel, golf, skiing, walking, biking.
I enjoy reading, love growing flowers, home decorating and socializing. Friends and family are a very important part of my life.
My favorite thing about being a LAR
As a Local Area Representative (LAR), I provide the local support for your family and au pair for the whole length of your year. I maintain regular contact monthly by phone, email, in-person and cultural events.
I truly love getting to know each family and au pair and helping them become a part of a successful childcare experience
for both the family and au pair! It has been such a treat to be able to be part of the lives of so many wonderful and interesting people.
Why I love my job
My cluster is located in the very beautiful, cosmopolitan city of Seattle/Eastside (and surrounding areas), rich in culture and nature. Au pairs love this area because of its diversity, culture and easy access to the ocean and mountains. Anyone who lives here or has visited, will agree! My cluster is growing and we are always actively recruiting new host families for the Seattle/Eastside areas. I have worked with hundreds of families and au pairs over the years, providing close support for both.
