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.
