Featured Au Pair: Maggie from Mexico

Way to go, Maggie! Hailing from Mexico, Maggie made a big impact on her Minnesota host family from the start, with host mom Sarah sharing "We feel ever-so-fortunate to have met and welcomed Maggie into our home. Maggie is our first au pair, and we were very nervous about finding a good match when we started this process. From the first interview, we knew Maggie was an amazing fit for our family. It was a perfect match, and she has been the most ultimate au pair. We can hardly imagine our lives without her."
