So many people dream of moving to Paris, and living an enchanted life in this breathtakingly beautiful city. I arrived in Paris, completely prepared to live my dream, and I learned very quickly that Paris takes your breath away in more ways than one! Settling here can be a challenge, and living a beautiful expat life in Paris required a bit more work than expected. Learning French is a key element to getting the most out of Parisian life, and feeling at home.
An Ontario (Canada) certified French Teacher with 10 years of teaching experience, I moved to Paris with my French husband in 2015. It was my dream to live in Paris a second time, after spending a year teaching in “The City of Light”, in 2006. Very shortly after arriving, we found out I was pregnant! It was a beautiful surprise, yet there was so much to learn and process.
I know first-hand how exhilarating, overwhelming and down right scary it can be to be a new mom in Paris. I help moms learn the basics – and beyond, to build confidence speaking French and to navigate life in the capital.
My goal is for mothers to come away from our lessons feeling good about themselves, knowing that what they do is always good enough. Most of all, I help to create a community, who support each other, learn together and share in this crazy and rewarding journey.

We were so lucky to find a lovely pediatrician when we got here. She was so kind and understanding, and was so empathetic that she cried with me once. Later, I found out it was because she was pregnant. As it turns out, her baby would change everything (as they do),...
Within a week or two of starting my new job in Paris, I found out we were going to have a baby. In hindsight I realize how scared I really was to be far away from home, with gaping holes in my understanding of the healthcare system here. I was convinced that I wanted...
I learned the hard way that a baguette “bien cuite” can be dangerous, and that asking for une baguette “pas trop cuite” can save lives. I broke my tooth on a baguette. In my defense it was quite a hard bit, but the real cause was a crown not done before moving to...
