Addie has recently been promoted to DAO! Previously, she worked as a French Teacher/Mentor and part-time DFI. She majored in French at San Francisco State University, where she saw the language for what is truly is – a culture. She spent a year studying in Paris, France, during her undergraduate years. She studied at the Université de Paris and lived in the 18e arrondissement. She taught at Lycée de la folie saint James, a public high school. Since her return to the States, Addie has completed for French BA, worked at Fusion Marin for a year, moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, to teach briefly and even work for a short period in a law firm. California called her name, and Addie found her way home and back to Fusion.
In her spare time, Addie can be found unraveling her yoga mat or running on trails. She’s an avid reader in both French and English, a coffee lover, and a huge Cleveland Browns fan. She strives to be a life-long student – to forever continue her studies of French language and literature, and to share her ever-deepening knowledge with students.
