I grew up in Quebec, Canada. As a young student, my thirst for knowledge led me to embark on a journey of traveling for studies, and I never looked back.

Over the years, I explored various countries, soaking in diverse cultures and experiences. Then, a little over five years ago, destiny brought me to the Bay Area, and I instantly fell in love with its vibrancy and opportunities.

With a desire to share my experience and expertise, I decided to transition from being a student or researcher to becoming a teacher. After completing the SJSU credential program, I found my first teaching job. Watching my students grow and learn brought me immense joy and satisfaction. I knew I was on the right path!

When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me swimming, cycling, and practicing yoga to keep me active and energized. And there’s nothing like a good board game session to unwind with friends and family!
