Originally from Paris, France and a recent resident of Sarasota, my professional career has always revolved around languages.

I began my career teaching English in Paris, and after acquiring technical skills, I switched to a long career in bilingual Technical Writing, also publishing several technical and literary translations for major publishing houses in Paris.

Since 2012, I have been dedicated to teaching Language Arts, Reading and French in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

I feel extremely honored and pleased to use my language skills to serve the students and their families at SMA.
