Kerynne McHendry
Manager – Durban and North Coast Branch Manager

Kerynne is a born & raised Durban girl that has had a passion and a love for children since a very young age. She has been babysitting since she can remember, and in 2009 set out on a life changing adventure to become a live-in Au Pair in the United States.

Over those 2 years, her passion for children only grew stronger and stronger. On return to SA in 2011 she continued au pairing whilst studying and working part-time, until the beginning of 2017. Happily married and firmly footed on SA ground, Kerynne loves sharing her au pair experience with those who are considering becoming au pairs, and using her first hand experience to help families and au pairs find the perfect match for each other.



I had been unsuccessfully looking for an au pair for weeks when I was given the details for Fab Au Pair Agency.  I admit that I was skeptical about using an agency as I have had no success with a huge number of them in the past, however, Steffie was unbelievable. She was efficient and thorough and sourced three fantastic candidates in a very short space of time, each of whom would have been a perfect option to look after my kids, which made the choice hard for me.
