About

Annick lives in Marana (North West of Tucson), Arizona and works as a professional, dedicated and driven French English Interpreter providing over-the-Phone services to healthcare insurance companies, government agencies such as US Customs & Border Protection, transportation and retail businesses, since February 2011. She acts as the voice of those who cannot speak (in English) for themselves and the majority are refugees from Africa and migrants.

Annick was born and raised in France in January 1953. She raised her three children while running her family business. Raised Catholic, Annick declared her belief in Baha'u'llah, the Prophet founder of the Baha'i Faith, and who's mission is to bring all the peoples of the world into unity as members of one human family. His son, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá said “There is perfect brotherhood underlying humanity, for all are servants of one God and belong to one family under the protection of divine providence.”

Annick who is an entrepreneur at heart, creative in many ways has worked as a Photo Lab Technician, Wedding Photographer, Web Designer, Administrative Assistant, Customer Care Assistant, Event Planner in a free time, and has opened her own French Creperie, a small restaurant (
Audio Promo) in 2002 in Flemington, New Jersey. In Summer 2005, she decided to sell her condo and return to France, definitely. In October 2008, leaving all her belongings behind her, she moved to Arizona. Since then, she spends her free time bringing about unity by using her creative talents and organizational skills in service to others. 

Annick traveled to Ivory Coast, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Israel, Canada and Costa Rica. She lived in New Jersey for 31 years and worked for different companies such as two Photo Labs (Clinton and Flemington, NJ); Hutchinson Industries (Trenton, NJ); Bristol-Myers Squibb (
Princeton, NJ); Acta-Assistance in Limonest (Lyon, France). In 2008, she  worked as a volunteer at Desert Rose Baha'i Institute (Eloy, Arizona). Always looking for opportunities for growth, Annick moved to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica, in 2010. Missing the sun and a dry climate, she moved back to Tucson to start her new career as a French English Interpreter at CyraCom International (Tucson, Arizona). Now, she retired — but is working again ... 

image-centerAnnick was the publisher of “Treasures of Wonderment,” [website] a free online magazine “promoting positive change through creative living.” She produced the “New Jersey Independent Music Festival” in 2003 and 2004, and in March 2012, produced the 1st free “Playing for Unity in Diversity” [website] Music Festival in Arizona, hosted by Old Tucson. She is hoping that her love for Music and the Arts is playing an important role in promoting world unity. A wonderful way to celebrate - Unity in Diversity. Though today, she feels that promoting community life is crucial for all of us.  "I feel, time is due to spend most of our energy and free time making new friends in order to transform our neighborhoods and bring change because, it's not about me, me but all of us. Laughter, humor and joy are an important part of life. We must remember to slow down to notice those who need us, no matter how old we are. It's all about changing our hearts and ways of living." she says.

Beyond Tolerance

“Bahá’u’lláh has proclaimed the oneness of the world of humanity. He has caused various nations and divergent creeds to unite. He has declared that difference of race and color is like the variegated beauty of flowers in a garden. If you enter a garden, you will see yellow, white, blue, red flowers in profusion and beauty — each radiant within itself and although different from the others, lending its own charm to them. Racial difference in the human kingdom is similar. If all the flowers in a garden were of the same color, the effect would be monotonous and wearying to the eye.
