About Coco, your host, your tutor, your personal coach

 

Bourges, a beautiful medieval town in the center of France is my hometown. Growing up, I loved academics, ballet, and classical piano.

I pursued higher education in foreign languages and commerce, got a degree as a commercial translator in French-English and in French-German, studied in Troyes, in the Champagne area of France, at the Ecole Superieure de Commerce / Institut du Commerce Exterieur, and at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. 


In 1986 I entered and won a students’ contest sponsored by the French-American Chamber of Commerce which took me to a trade show in Los Angeles, with all expenses paid for. I was a translator on the show for some French companies, and I met my later-to-be husband there. I went back to France to finish my last year as a student, graduated, got married in 1988, and moved to San Francisco.

​I worked with my husband for several years until our first child, West, was born. Soon after, we moved to Montana and had a second child, a girl this time, Claire Marie.

I loved to be a mother and a true friend to both children. I loved every step of their childhood and teen-age years (yes, even the teen-age years!) and, although they are now far away from me, I am still very close to them.

 

I have always loved to teach. As a matter of fact, I have been a very busy tutor and coach for many years, teaching Math, French, Etiquette, English Grammar and Writing Skills to groups and to private individuals.

​​

In 2008, I produced a musical which was the fruit of hundreds of hours of work. It was a very dear project of mine, a tribute to my mother country, to my family, and to the French-American alliance during World War II. I gathered many anecdotal pieces and evidence from war time in France, assembled them like a puzzle, and built the poignant story of a young boy that fled the occupied zone in 1939, struggled, and found America. To my script I added songs, music, and arrangements, and I am hoping that someday the musical will be lifted to some new heights.

In 2010, I was appointed “Honorary Consul of France” for the State of Montana. Since then, I have been assisting and protecting the citizens of France and, for these specific functions, I am attached to the General French Consulate of San Francisco.

When my husband and I became empty-nested, I opened a French restaurant in Hamilton, Montana. I started small, and quickly had to expand as it became popular very soon. Within three years, I was running the restaurant, a French boutique, and a reception hall for special venues. Life was extremely busy for me, … too busy.

I had to make more time for teaching and coaching.

 

Making a difference in each and every student is my call and my dedication today.

Most classes are held at 274 Old Corvallis Road, Suite I
(in the Ravalli County Economic Development Authority building)
