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.

My name is Arienne and I’ve been involved with au pairs since 2002.  I was born in Michigan and grew up in Florida.  I graduated from the University of South Florida with a business degree and moved to Texas with my husband in 1991.

Besides my love of family and au pairs, I have many interests!  Travel is like air to me, something I must not go without!  We have taken many trips to many places, something that I feel is so important.  We have traveled throughout the US, as well as Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Denmark, Czech Republic, Holland, Greece, Germany and Thailand.  There are so many other wonderful places still on my bucket list!

I have been a Girl Scout co-Leader since 2006.  I have coached or judged for Odyssey of the Mind since 2005.  My family has been involved with a local animal shelter since 2007; we volunteer at the shelter and foster dogs who are ill.  I have been active at my children’s schools, holding various Board positions with the PTO.  There is never a dull moment and there is always an extra place at the dinner table for someone in need!

I plan fun activities for the au pairs in the area, you can check out the calendar to see what we’ve done in the past, as well as our future plans.  I can answer just about any question you have regarding the au pair program!  I am happy to assist you with your search to find the best au pair fit for your family.

I look so forward to working with you in the future!  I can assist anybody in the United States with program information and the search for your au pair.  Hosting an au pair can be one of the most fulfilling experiences you can have- bringing worlds together and changing lives forever!
