"Murielle was one of the most important contacts we made as we transitioned from Chicago to Bordeaux! She educated me on all of the school choices for Primaire and College. She helped me understand the advantages and disadvantages of each school. Once we narrowed the list, she managed the entire process of registration as well as communication with the schools. She even walked through the neighborhoods of the schools and talked to families to learn more about their perspectives on the schools. Murielle is organized and incredibly efficient. She is always positive and helpful and was very responsive as we went through this process. Murielle helped us find our schools, clubs (dance studios, swim teams, etc.) and provided us with a tremendous amount of general information. We could not have made this transition without her help."

“I arrived in Bordeaux in 2014 with my 5 year old daughter and Murielle's help establishing everything has been indispensable. My source of income was still in Australia, so I had limited references in France and she took on this difficult challenge with amazing efficiency and persistence. Everything from a beautiful apartment, insurance, car and bank account were taken care of and she listened carefully to my requests. Throughout the year, Murielle has continued to assist me where I have had difficulty navigating the system in French including a car insurance claim and application for a French driver's licence. It also became clear that the school my daughter attended during our first year in Bordeaux would not be suitable in the long term, and she was extremely helpful in finding a solution, organising meetings with alternative schools and assisting in finding the best extracurricular activities for my daughter such as a lovely music school which she enjoys immensely. This year would have been much more stressful without Murielle's help.”
