About me


I have been offering community fitness classes and tips in Paris since 1985. I worked full-time at the OECD, where I created and managed its social media activity and strategy. I also volunteer at the American Church in Paris, publishing its monthly magazine, and providing tours of the church.

Do you accept walk-ins?


Yes, the classes at the American Church in Paris are open to the community at large, and there's no need for reservations. 

That said, because of events at the church, sometimes classes get cancelled or moved. So, especially during holidays, it's advisable to check in with the church reception or with me before heading over.
