I was born and raised in a small town in Southern France not far from Nice. After a BA in Art History and a MA in Language Pedagogy from the Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris, I decided to teach French as a Foreign Language abroad. I have had the opportunity to work in France, England, Morocco, and Canada. My passion for art and language led to the creation of a new Art History class at Alliance.

I was born and raised in France.
After my MBA at the “EM Lyon”, School of Management (France), I moved to Germany. At first, I worked in a big French sporting goods company (Decathlon) as responsible for trainings and communication while getting my first experience with teaching French. I always loved to teach and wanted to stay connected to my own language! After a while, I decided to give another orientation to my carrier and worked for a children’s rights organization whose goal was to implement programs in Africa. At the same time, I started establishing my own business as a yoga and language instructor. At the end of 2010, I moved from Germany to Washington DC and have been teaching at the Alliance Française since then. I have experience with corporate groups, one-on-one sessions, exam preparation and language classes with adults, teenagers and children. I am also supporting the social project of the Alliance AFEI. I am a passionate teacher committed in making you enjoy the French language! Hope to see you soon at the Alliance.
