I'm Country Support Manager for Germany

As we currently have our 4th au pair, I already researched lots of information about au pairs in Germany and so other befriended host families started to ask me for advice - therefore I'm really happy to share my knowledge now here on connectAuPair.

I'm Language Support Manager for German

which is my mother tongue, but I'm also happy to communicate in English.

Why I work for connectAuPair and what's my job there

Based on the unsatisfying experiences with existing online platforms when searching for our own au pair, I talked Christoph (my husband) into setting up connectAuPair (which was and still is a huge amount of work for him as a programmer) as I'm sure that we can provide much better services than there are currently available on the internet.

In my (sparse) spare time I of course support connectAuPair in any way I can.

At connectAuPair, my main role is to find, organise and enter all the relevant information to become an au pair or a host family in French speaking countries in our database. Those information are mostly legal regulations, but also tips and advices to ensure the stay is as enjoyable as possible for everyone.

Why I work for connectAuPair and what's my job there

A concoction of professional background, life experiences and studies spiced up with a dash of sincere enthusiasm towards the whole idea that permeates this project (there’s never enough of a thing such as cultures getting to knowing better each other, especially in the times we are currently living), this is what has brought me to connectAuPair.


Search, digest, present and eventually translate relevant pieces of information regarding the "Au pair" topic for the country I've been entrusted, implementation of marketing activities, care and management of content aimed both at social networks and internal online community are some of the tasks on which I am involved at connectAuPair.

I'm Language Support Manager for German

Why I work for connectAuPair and what's my job there

I'm Country Support Manager for various countries and I like the idea of providing very detailed information about different countries regarding the aspect "becoming an au pair". Besides that, there is the aspect of "finding the perfect match" regarding 

  • country
  • host family / au pair

on behalf of the personal circumstances.

What I think is the best about cAP

Personally, I like the fact that all the information at cAP is thoroughly researched, helping all prospective au pairs / host families to find 

  • the right country and
  • the so-called "perfect match": au pair <-> host family.

Why I work for connectAuPair and what's my job there

I was very happy and excited to join the connectAuPair team! My job as a Country Support Manager for Finland, Norway and USA is to help the au pairs and host families to find all the information they might need about au pairing in these countries, as easily as possible, and to make sure that this information is up to date and relevant. I have traveled a lot and also lived many years abroad in different countries, and I know that it is sometimes difficult to find the information you are looking for. I often wished I had someone I could simply ask, instead of spending hours searching for the correct info. I want to be that person for you, to help finding answers for any questions you might have about au pairing in Finland, Norway and USA.

Why I work for connectAuPair and what's my job there

During my study for professional translator I've met many Au Pairs, who experienced some problems due to the lack of information. 

I'm happy to help people, because I know how hard it can be to move into a new language environment.

As part of cAP team I translate contents of the website into Russian and Ukrainian, moderate the community, do the corresponding reseach and viral marketing.

My life in a nutshell

I study translation and interpreting and work as a freelance translator. 

I am a huge sci-fi geek and I love travelling.
