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.

Originally from Orlando, Fl, I currently reside in Midland Park, NJ with my husband, Robbyn, son Harrison (almost 2), and au pair, Aline from Brazil. In addition to being a LCC, I work as an Assistant Principal of a special education high school in the south Bronx. In my free time I love spending time with my family and friends and taking every opportunity to travel the world.

I love all things international and have a deeply rooted interest in cultural exchange and education. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Furman University in International Development Studies. In college, I studied abroad to over a dozen countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. I also have a deep love for childhood education. I earned my first Master’s degree in Teaching Special Education, and my second Master’s in School Leadership from Bank Street College. My background includes a variety of experiences that have uniquely prepared me for working with Cultural Care’s au pairs and host families.
