I feel grateful anytime someone reaches out to me, because it gives me an opportunity to learn something more about different reasons that motivate people to move to Paris. I love the warm-fuzzies that come from helping people integrate into the Parisian way of life. Besides the Expats Paris teammates, the things that make me happy usually include a sport, concert or delicious Nems I love to make.

Every day is different with Expats Paris, and I feel incredibly happy to be part of this community. For me, this is about learning. I love reaching out to our amazing community members and learning from their experiences so that we can make Expats Paris the best community it can possibly be! I also love DJ-ing in clubs in Paris and at my friends’ house parties. :)

I’m an English expat and moved to Paris in June 2012. Since then, I’ve settled into Parisian life (with coffee, wine and croissant aux amandes). I’ve made a bunch of friends and became fluent in the local language (ß the last one is a total lie). When not battling through the terrain of a Parisian office, I do marketing with friends at Expats Paris. I’m also a copywriter for small businesses, using writing to increase sales and customer conversion rates. On a final note, stalking me on Twitter is totally recommended.

I very quickly fell in love with Expats Paris after attending one of their parties in Paris. After that experience, I was hooked and knew being part of such a community of help and constant learning would be a dream. When I talked to the Expats Paris team, it just seemed like the perfect fit. I’ve always found joy in helping others meet new people. Outside of the office, I’m pretty addicted to everything IT Training-related and to spending lots of quality time with my loved ones.

A Chicagoan by birth and a Californian at heart, I moved to Paris to pursue a Master’s degree in Culture and Communication. I feel so fortunate to have met Michael and the wonderful world of Expats Paris! Being an expat in Paris is a rollercoaster ride full of discovery, adventure and unique challenges. As a member of the Expats Paris team, I hope to help other internationals feel at home in their adopted city, meet new friends, learn something new. I can’t wait to see you at our next event. Be sure to say "hi"!
