Marie has spent almost 20 years of her career in the Tourism & Hospitality industry with a specialty in Branding, Marketing and Sustainability. But she always found ways to also be involved in greater education and to perfect her teaching skills. Because teaching others brought her so much joy. Whether it was through teaching Tourism Management to college students, building training programs in the workplace or teaching English and French (her first language) around the world, she always felt most happy in a classroom. Marie is passionate about helping children navigate learning in an inclusive and fun environment. She loves sharing her experience and the lessons she’s learned in the Travel & Tourism business and helping kids and adults learn new languages or advance their literacy skills.
Fun Fact: Marie loves adventure and wildlife travel. She has trekked on many mountain chains (including to Everest Base Camp) and visited plenty of jungles, oceans and grasslands in search of endangered species. That’s her idea of a perfect vacation!
