Profile

Hello! Welcome to the French program at Montclair State University. I am the Deputy Chair of the department of World Languages & Cultures, as well as the undergraduate advisor for French majors and minors.

At MSU, I teach courses at all levels of our curriculum, from beginning and intermediate French, to major courses in translation, conversation, composition, and grammar, and undergraduate and MA courses in early modern literature and civilization.

Contact me about all of our programs in French!
