Biographical Info I have been a professional French interpreter for 3 years, and an informal one for a very long time. I lived in France and in Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), West Africa for many years, so I am comfortable with many different French accents. I feel at home in multicultural environments and love being able to connect people through language. Living in another culture has made me flexible and creative. I built and ran a training business for 20 years, created a weekly radio drama with a 6 year run, led seminars, taught at secondary and university levels, mentored, been on boards and generally done whatever the situation required.
