Meet the Staff
Ashleigh (Director): Bonjour tout le monde! This is my 10th summer with Summerfuel! During the academic year, I teach high school French. I love to travel, read, hike, and paddle board. I am really looking forward to showing you all why Nice is one of my favorite places on the planet!! See you soon!!
Ashley (Assistant Director): Hello! My name is Ashley Ferreira and I’m your Assistant Director for Summerfuel’s Nice Program. I’m a forever student of French and media studies; I got my Master’s in French Literature this year and will definitely want to know what media (shows, books, bands, films) you like, no matter the language it’s in. I need new artists to follow! You will learn how much of a fan I am of France, good food (thank you, France!), music, and Ed Sheeran, in that order. Outside of Summerfuel, I teach high school French in one of my 3 hometowns – Atlanta, Georgia. You have a great summer ahead of you and we are excited to lead you on this journey. Safe travels and see you soon!
Sabrina(Resident Adviser): My name is Sabrina Howard. I am currently completing my PhD in American and Ethnic Studies at the University of Southern California. As an undergraduate student, I minored in French and studied abroad in Paris. Outside of writing my dissertation, I enjoy teaching and taking yoga classes, cooking delicious healthy food, and going to matinée movies.
