An assessment specialist at Educational Testing Service, she has contributed to tests of French, Italian, Music, and Theater, for students and prospective teachers, and currently directs professional studio recordings of multimedia tests. Her publications include: textbooks in language instruction; theater reviews for the Princeton Packet; (with Gabriel Asfar) a translation of Musiques Cubaines; and a New Yorker-sponsored short story contest-winner, “A Case of La Grande Dame”, set at the Metropolitan Opera House. Her prize-winning Opera Quiz questions have been broadcast nationally as part of the Metropolitan Opera intermission feature.

A lifelong theater-goer and amateur thespian, she appeared as Elmire in a French production of Tartuffe in Princeton.
