Marie grew up in the south-west of England in a large industrial town called Swindon. Having studied in Bristol, she remained in this vibrant city for 7 years, working in a variety of schools in Swindon and inner-city Bristol.

Then, to fuel her appetite for adventure, Marie took a position in Bangkok, Thailand, where she spent time exploring Asia. She developed a fascination with the rich culture and history of China and moved to a large international school in Suzhou in 2008, where she later gained the position of Deputy Head of Junior School.

Despite being somewhat accident prone, Marie enjoys a variety of sports and activities such as football, badminton, netball and cycling. Marie joined the Britannica family in 2016 and has subsequently had a daughter, Eve Violet, who now attends nursery and is doing much better than Marie at learning Hungarian! When she is not playing with Eve or exploring Budapest, Marie is often found with her nose buried in a good book.

Marie is proud to be part of such a wonderful and welcoming community and to be working with such a fantastic group of children, staff and parents.
