Holly Tucker teaches both French and the history of medicine at Vanderbilt University.
As the granddaughter of French immigrants, she's says, she's never been able to shake the genetic connection she has to French-speaking Europe. Over the years, she's lived in Belgium, Paris, and Aix-en-Provence.

I met my husband, Jon Hamilton, when we were both dorm RAs at Indiana. We now live in Nashville with our young daughter and a lively dog named Lucky Shakespeare.
