I was born in France and moved to Ireland at the age of 16 where I finished my secondary education and later graduated from the University of Limerick with a Bachelor's degree in Education and Modern Languages. I moved to the UK in 2015 where I have been teaching until now.

I have been a teacher in the UK for the past three years and have taught French at GCSE and A-level.
