Director of Studies

I have been Director of Studies at ACCESS since 2008. Prior to that I taught at ACCESS for 6 years.

Prior to my teaching career, I was a Reservation and Sales Manager for a French travel company. As a result, I travelled extensively in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Europe.

My love of travelling and meeting people from different cultures has served me well in both careers. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, gardening, reading and listening to music, and playing with my quirky cat Stella J”.

If you have any questions related to your course, teacher, progress, or evaluation, come and talk to me. The door to my office is always open.
