I'm originally from California but I've lived in New York (1 year), London (6 years), Hong Kong (1 1/2 years) and France since 1996. I also worked on a kibbutz in Israel and studied in France during university. My degrees are in International relations and Political Science from San Francisco State University. I worked as a Flight Attendant for 13 years in 5 countries doing mostly long-haul international flights. My husband is from Alsace and speaks French, Alsatian and German. My children were all born in France and speak French, English and German. I became a French citizen in 2002 and my children and I can keep both for life.
