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.

I am originally from Simsbury, CT. I attended the University of Pennsylvania where I majored in European History and minored in Spanish. I worked as an au pair in Duesseldorf, Germany for one year after college before beginning graduate work in Comparative History from Brandeis University. After earning my M.A., I began my career as a high school History teacher, basketball and softball coach. I have been living in Bethesda, MD since 2002, when I relocated from Philadelphia to be closer to my family. I love traveling, sports, exercising and spending time with my family, especially my five-year old son!
