Autobiographical Sketch :

I was born in Paris, France and immigrated to Canada in 1987. Since settling in Halifax, I have taught French as a Second Language to civil servants, students at the International Language Institute, the Alliance Française and with the Public Service Commission. I have been director of the Alliance Française de Halifax (a French cultural and language centre) from 1989 to 2001 and Honorary Vice-Consul for France from 1996 to 2000. I have taught French and created courses for both children and adults at different levels. I have also organized a wide variety of cultural events in Halifax. Since 1990, I have enjoyed teaching part-time at the Mount, in the Modern Languages Department .

On a more personal note, I am married and have five children, one dog and two cats. I enjoy walking, swimming, horseback riding, reading and cooking.
