Sarah Kelly is the owner of Adanac Au Pair. She was an Au Pair in France for a year living with an incredible family. Between stuffing her face with cheese, over exaggerating her French accent to blend in and visiting the beach, she cared for 3 awesome children. When she returned to Canada she became an Aunt! Sarah saw the child care crisis in Canada and thought it was time to bring the Au Pair Program to Canada. She decided to start her own Au Pair agency to share her experience with Canadian families and young adults who want to work & travel.
