About me

As a Cultural Care local childcare consultant (LCC), I invite our host families and au pairs as well as those considering Cultural Care Au Pair to explore my site and learn about what is going on in our community. I provide year-round support to host families and au pairs, and also talk to families considering the program to help them determine if Cultural Care Au Pair is the right childcare solution for them.

My personal life includes my husband, two sons (adopted internationally), and two Bernese Mountain Dogs. Having been a host mom to both a foreign exchange student and an au pair, I relate well with host families. A graduate of Portland State University, I also studied in Europe during my college years and have travelled extensively, resulting in a deep appreciation of the value of cultural exchange.


I look forward to speaking with you about au pair possibilities for your family.
