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.

Although I was raised in Colorado, I have lived in the Johnson County, Kansas area for over 25 years. I spent a year as an exchange student in Oldenburg, Germany and have had two year-long visits from the grand children of my German family, as well as college break visitors from Iran, Japan and Syria. I very much enjoy cultural diversity and always enjoy learning new things about various cultures and individuals. I’m sure your Au Pair and Host Family relationship will be a great learning adventure, too. Professionally, I have worked in the non-profit field providing programs and services to children and families, mental health or aging services. I also currently consult with organizations for strategic planning, capacity building and resource development or accreditation and compliance standards. If I can be of assistance to you in learning more about Cultural Care Au Pair or if you have questions relating to your current Cultural Care Au Pair program experience, do let me know.
