Stefania speaks 3 languages!
Please allow Stefania to introduce herself;
I was born in Padova (Italy) in 1966. After my degree in Chemistry, I went to Lausanne (Switzerland) to continue my education. I met Dave and we married in 1994. I moved to Newcastle upon Tyne in England. We have 2 children. I speak 3 languages, and to combine work and family I chose a career using languages. I still remember rocking my child while revising for the Diploma in Translations! I also followed courses on communication skills and teamwork to proactively deal with contacts from different cultures and countries.
In 2004 I set up Williams Language Solutions to offer translations, interpreting, cultural consultancy and language training. My aim is to be a communication bridge between Italy and Great Britain.
When I met Nicole, I was immediately enthused by Smartaupairs. I became an agent because Smartaupairs is a magnificent service for au pairs and families. Neither Smartaupairs - nor anything like it - was around when I was young, eager to learn, and willing to be an au pair. I hope I can now put my years of experience and knowledge of languages and culture into some use to break down communication barriers and help all au pair candidates during the first steps to become au pairs.
You can see more of what I do in www.translate-it.org. I offer 30% discount on translations and language training to all au pairs and families registered with Smartaupairs. One more benefit from Smartaupairs!
See you at Smartaupairs.com
2009 NOTE: we now use only specialist Agencies based in the country of origin of the au pair to recruit, select and prepare au pairs for our program.
