Addie began her Fusion career at a French Teacher / Mentor and Director of First Impressions. She received her Bachelors of the Arts in French Literature and Language 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 worked at Fusion Marin, 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 running half marathons or searching for a good cup of coffee. She’s an avid reader in both French and English and a huge Cleveland Browns fan. She strives to be a life-long student and continue throughout her career to create inclusive and excellent learning environments.
