Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

Would you like your family to learn firsthand about another culture without incurring the expense of travel? Hosting a student with World Heritage will provide the opportunity to welcome a 16 year old student from another country, another continent, another culture, into your family. Each year we have at least 400 students apply to live with an American family because they want to get to know the real America, the one that only you can offer them. They want to become a part of your family and a part of your community, and to World Heritage, a family can be empty nesters, unmarried couples, and even singles! My family has hosted, and I now have 6 international daughters in addition to my own two adult daughters. I have worked with World Heritage as an Area Representative for 12 years, and I can help you select a student who will be a good fit with your family. We place students in Wake County Public Schools for the Junior year only, either for the Fall semester or for an entire academic year. We place all over North Carolina; I have helped families in Chapel Hill and Clayton welcome an international daughter to their families, too! If you reside in Wake County, though, you need to know that WCPSS has a hard deadline of July 31, and some schools have already filled their allotted seats. Contact me for information, and let’s talk about hosting! My email address is: [email protected]

Being our first time to host, we had no idea what to expect. Although terribly excited about our new venture, we were a little nervous and unsure of how much initial awkwardness or time was needed for everyone to acclimate. From the moment we met Michela at the airport, she removed all hesitation and fears by immediately hugging us all. Having two boys and no daughters in the house was a new experience for us all, yet Michela made it so easy.
