Amanda Walter

About me

My name is Amanda Walter and I am married with 5 children who range from 9 years old to toddler. I homeschool my own children as well as tutor young children. Education is a true passion of mine and with that comes the desire to never stop learning. This part of who I am helps me to be a great Local Area Representative. There is ALWAYS something new to learn!! My husband and I are lucky to enjoy spending time with our family as we have a huge extended family right in our area.

My favorite thing about being a LAR

I really enjoy my job as a Local Area Representative (LAR) for Go Au Pair. Not only do I bring my educational background, I have a wealth of cultural understanding having traveled abroad and raising a multicultural family. I love applying my knowledge in helping my families and au pairs have a successful cultural childcare experience. I also love that I get to learn about different cultures and see the diverse nuances of family life in my demographic area.

Why I love my job

I have worked with Go Au Pair for 6 years. Before Go Au Pair I worked in the Preschool environment for 15+years and have nannied for various familes with children that have had special needs and even had the chance to take care of twins. I have worked with many, many families and au pairs over the years. With Go Au Pair, I maintain monthly contact with my au pairs and host families via phone, email, text messages, skype, and social media; basically whatever it takes to have everyone feel supported. I do my best to host events that are fun for host families and au pairs, more than the standard 6 times a year. My cluster extends to the Northwest of 66. I take care of many parts of Loudon and Fairfax County and some of the Southern parts of Maryland, including Bethesda and Gaithersburg. I am always on the look out for potential families that would be a great fit for our program along with au pairs that would fit well with some of my current families.

Caroline Flaherty

About me

My name is Caroline. I was born and raised in Alexandria, VA. I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Bulgaria for two years and studied abroad in Italy. I taught kindergarten for six years. I have three sons and a dog.

I now serve as the LAR (Local Area Representative) for Go Au Pair and absolutely love working with my host families and au pairs. It’s a wonderful program and I’m proud to be a part of it.

My favorite thing about being a LAR

My favorite thing about the job is seeing the happiness that comes from host families and au pairs having a positive, fulfilling experience.

I often have host parents tell me how much happiness and peace of mind they and their children feel with their au pair in their family, and have au pairs tell me that this experience is better than they imagined it could be. That is one of many highlights of my job.

Why I love my job

I have served as an LAR since March 215 and I love working with my host families and au pairs. I have over a decade of experience working with families and children both as a kindergarten teacher, as well as a childcare provider before that. I was a Peace Corps volunteer and working with people from all unique cultures has always been a joy of mine.

As an LAR I stay in close contact with families and au pairs to support you and help make the program a wonderful experience for you. I also plan exciting cultural activities many times per year.

In my cluster we have 1-15 au pairs at a time from all over the world.

Migena Nuri

About me

My name is Migena Nuri and I am the Local Area Representative for Washington DC area. I am originally from Albania and am the mother of 2 beautiful kids. My educational background is in economics and international relations, I have spent several years working in an international organisation, specializing in training and staff development for both technical and general skills. Being a diplomat for my country in the past has offered me the chance to work and live in interesting places, with Washington DC being one of them. I tell all the Au Pairs in my cluster that we are so lucky to live in the nation’s vibrant and dynamic capital. DC has so much to offer, there is always something going on! A diplomat from the start, my life has been about supporting and building international relations. This has transferred nicely to my life in the DC area. I have earned both BA and Masters degrees in Economics and International relations in Budapest, Hungary. I am fluent in English, Hungarian, Italian, Albanian, and have a good working knowldge of Serbo-Croatian.

My favorite thing about being a LAR

My favorite thing about being a LAR is providing positive support to the brave young people who leave their homes and families to become part of the American culture for a year or more, as well as provide guidance and support to their Host Families.

Why I love my job

In my previous job, I dealt a lot with State Department’s exchange program and have seen the benefits of them for both participating countries, in particular for my country of origin. Childcare is something very close to my heart, being a mother of 2 young kids. I have a lot of esteem and gratitude for those that provide child care and know how much it means to know that your children are in good hands. Being a student in a foreign country, I also know that an experience like this broadens your horizons and gives you a different perspective in life. Au Pair combines all of these in one and has been no disappointment in this regard. My previous work has prepared me well for my position as a LAR with Go Au Pair. I am happy to support both Au Pairs and Host Families as they embark on their cultural childcare experiences as part of this mutually beneficial program. I have also enjoyed teaching Albanian language to children of friends, co-patriots and Albanian families living in Washington D.C. area.
