Dear Au Pair Foundation Community,
At Au Pair Foundation, our mission is to provide personalized, one-to-one service to our host families and au pairs. We are constantly looking at ways to improve our program and make it the best au pair program in the United States. In order to better fulfill this mission, we are pleased to announce our new field staff structure. By restructuring our field staff, we will be able to continue our exceptional customer service and continue to strength our program of flexible and affordable childcare.
Au Pair Foundation field staff is comprised of a team of professionals committed to the mission of cultural exchange. We take pride in our personalized service, offering both our host families and au pairs with a team that is well trained and also committed to our mission of quality cultural exchange experiences. Our mission is to give our host families and our au pairs the right expectation, which is the key to a successful match.
Our Regional Directors are responsible for all new development and marketing by helping current host families navigate getting their next Au Pair. They help au pairs throughout their au pair year and also to navigate their extension year. Our Regional Directors works very closely with the Community Representatives in the their region, by conducting all hiring and training programs for the new and existing field staff in their region, including a continuing education training program.

Her passion for the au pair program is evident in the level of service she provides for all of those with whom she comes into contact.
Carrie lives in Saint Louis, Missouri with her husband, Seth, and her children, a 2 year old son and a new baby boy expected in September. Carrie and Seth met during a law school study abroad program in Madrid, Spain, and have loved travel, language and cultural exchange ever since. They have enjoyed many wonderful trips abroad and hope to continue crossing places off their bucket list – next up is Argentina!

Our host families learn more about the au pair’s culture, language and the world around them, while our au pairs learn about life with an American family, experience a unique cultural exchange and create lasting memories throughout the program year. Our boutique agency strives to provide all of our host families and au pairs with an exceptional cross-cultural exchange and childcare program that will enhance their understanding and acceptance of other cultures and foster life-long friendships.
