Hi, I’m Veronica Winkler and I’m the InterExchange Au Pair USA Local Coordinator for Seattle, Washington. Specifically, my cluster of host families and au pairs extends to Bellevue, Redmond, Renton, Snohomish, and many Seattle neighborhoods.
I have a passion for travel and meeting people from various cultures. I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada from a third culture perspective. My mother is from Mexico and my father is from Germany. I now call Sammamish home and have lived here since 2008 with my husband and our three young children. I have also lived in Cincinnati, Boston, and Toronto; most recently, we spent two years living in Guildford, England. My family loved the experience, which included learning a new culture, making new friends, and traveling through Europe at every opportunity.
The role of Local Coordinator, I feel, is a perfect fit, where I can utilize my past experiences in human resources and facilitate the wonderful cultural exchange of hosting and being an Au Pair. And as mother of three young children I understand child care needs and host family concerns. I am looking forward to working with and supporting you all! I am here to help you, so please feel free to contact me at any time.
I’m here to provide support and answer any questions you may have about the program. Applying is easy with our online application, but please don’t hesitate to send us an email if you have questions about hosting an au pair.
I hope to welcome you to the Au Pair USA family soon!
