"Coming from a family of educators, I had an early taste for the joys of learning, and then sharing that joy with others. That’s why Paris Muse felt like a second home to me from the start – a group of people who love art, history and culture, and love to see others fall in love with it too. It is such a privilege to work with people who share a passion, and an even greater privilege to help visitors get in on the fun! Even after all these years, I sometimes have to pinch myself when I find myself standing before the soaring bell towers of Notre Dame, at the Louvre plumbing the depths of ancient Mesopotamia, or walking along the Seine with its historic bridges spanning the sparkling waters. Paris is forever new when you have the eyes to see it, and that is why helping others do so positively thrills me."
