How long have you been an NETC Tour Director?
It's going to be my fifth season touring with NETC.
What’s your favorite thing about being a Tour Director?
I love showing students things they used to see in books! Telling them stories about kings and queens, etc.
What languages do you speak?
French and English are my first languages. I speak Spanish as well and a bit of Italian and Finnish.
What’s your favorite place you have ever been and why?
That's difficult. I get to see so many beautiful places while touring, but I'd say New Zealand. I love the outdoors and it was definitely an amazing trip, rock climbing, ice climbing, hiking!
What do you do for fun when you aren’t leading students around Europe?
In the winter, I love to go snowboarding, I live twenty minutes from the first slopes; I love it! In the summer I like to hike and rock climb. In general, I love going to the museum. I love art, sculpture in particular. I also like visiting monuments, I'm a big fan of architecture, especially Renaissance.
Do you have a favorite travel quote?
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” -Mark Twain
