Learn more 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 know that many working parents are struggling with every day tasks to get it all done!  Hosting an au pair is an affordable alternative to daycare or nanny and it can simplify your daily responsibilities. An au pair can prepare your kids’ breakfast and lunch boxes, take them to and from school, do your kids’ laundry, clean their rooms and put away toys, drive kids to afternoon activities, run errands, organize, prepare dinner, and so much more which allows YOU for quality bonding time with your child once you are back home.

Please let me tell you about myself: I was born and raised in Hamburg which is located in the Northern part of Germany. Eighteen years ago, the marketing agency I worked for transferred me first to Cupertino and then to San Francisco, CA. In 2006 I moved to the East Bay where my husband and I happily enjoy life living in Berkeley with our teenage sons Lukas and Kayden, our dog Cherokee and cat Lucy.

At the weekends, I love to go hiking with my friends, watch my boys play basketball, entertain guests or simply enjoy family life in our cozy home. Every other year, we visit my family in Germany and in the past years I was even able to introduce some new European countries to my husband and kids (such as Denmark, Spain, Greece, Italy or Poland). Exploring new parts of the world is so much fun!

I am passionate about my job as an Au Pair Consultant in the San Francisco Bay Area and excited to provide local support, guidance and coaching to an amazing group of host families and au pairs in Berkeley.

Finding the right childcare resource is such an important decision and I’m here to help! Please contact me to discuss if an au pair is the right fit for YOUR family! !
