French was the only foreign language offered at Jenny’s middle school in suburban Maryland, and she hasn’t looked back. After college, including a junior year in Paris, she lived in Seattle and Durango, CO before spending a year teaching English near Lyon. After returning stateside and earning a master’s degree in French studies at New York University, Jenny and her husband settled in Seattle. She has worked in editorial and communications roles at organizations around the city, currently at a local independent school. The family, including two daughters, have loved being part of NSFS since 2014.
