Susan Asay started Apex after giving birth to her first child. Susan is originally from Germany and now lives in San Clemente, California. There, she experienced firsthand the challenges American parents face when looking for quality childcare. At the same time, she wanted to create the opportunity for young people from Germany to gain experience abroad while working in their chosen professional field.
Apex Social expanded in 2020 to identify and place American care professionals in the education, therapeutic and nursing fields with American and Australian host families. Our unique program ensures that families can find the right caregiver with professional experience to match their needs, whether they have a new baby, multiples, a toddler or a child with special needs.
The Apex family includes Apex Social, a 501c3 non-profit promoting education, travel and cultural exchange, Apex PROaupair, an international au pair agency designated by the US Department of State; ApexPROcare, a domestic professional caregiver agency placing American caregivers with American families, and Apex Professional Exchange, which places caregivers in Australia.
A Letter from Apex Founder and CEO, Susan Asay
As Founder and CEO, I am so excited to welcome you to our Apex global family as a care professional.
Since founding Apex Professional American Exchange in 2008, I’ve hosted multiple professional au pairs in my own home and our company has matched families with thousands of professional caregivers. Over the years, our experiences have taught us a great deal about the care professional and host family relationship, and we’ve learned so much about what helps that relationship to be successful.
I am excited that we can now provide young Americans with similar experience and qualifications as our German candidates - the opportunity to join families as live-in care professionals and enjoy the benefits of experiential learning and domestic travel through our trusted program. We are excited for you to join our community of care professionals, and we look forward to helping you to grow and to celebrate your many successes that you will have through your Apex experience!
We are here to support you throughout your journey, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time. I sincerely wish you all the best, and hope that your experience is one that you will value for a lifetime!
With warm regards, Susan Asay Founder and CEO
