About Me

I have been calling Austin home for 20 years though I am originally from Paris, France, where I received an Associate degree in International Trade, Political and Economical Sciences and a License level in Sciences of Education at the Sorbonne University. I have been working for Charter Schools since 2009 as Office Manager, Business Manager, H.R. director, C.F.O. and C.O.O. and I deeply embrace ADS philosophy of education.
Prior to that, I was a voice-over for French educational tutorials, directed a Franco-American Montessori pre-school program and was an assistant teacher in a stroke recovery center in San Francisco. In 2008,I founded Miles of Hope, an association for Childhood Cancer Awareness and volunteered for a year throughout Central and South America with my four wonderful sons and where I fell in love with the Latin culture and language.
In my free time you can see me around Town Lake on my bike or kayak. I also love yoga and to go out dancing with my husband any Latin dances out there. (come join us!)
