Senior Modern Language Associate
In My Words:
My passion for world language learning began in first grade, when I was enrolled by my parents in a French immersion program that continued throughout my secondary education—I was taught how to read in French before English! Throughout this time, I learned new ways to see the world and the words we use to communicate with from a different perspective. After high school, I went on to study French Language and Culture, as well as International Studies at the university level. Following graduation, my passion for world languages led me to work in the international travel industry. It was during this time that I gained authentic cultural experiences, and further cultivated my enthusiasm for world language learning prior to coming to work at VHL. I love the nuances and wit of languages, and it’s very fulfilling to have the opportunity to share my passion for language with others every day!
