She also coordinated and chaperoned a 10-day tour through France and England and a week-long trip to Paris for University of North Carolina-Wilmington students. She is a professional member of the Modern Language Association and the American Association of Teachers of French.
Dr. Crampton-Frenchik received her bachelor of arts degree in French language and literature from Duke University in Durham, N.C., and her master of arts degree in French literature from The University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Va.

Dr. Crampton-Frenchik is currently examining the notion of marginalization as inspiration, with a focus on women’s voices, in Francophone film and literature.
