Annick Elzière is a creative entrepreneur with over thirty years of professional experiences including freelance event planning, photo lab technician, web designer, exotic car restoration shop owner-manager, coffee shop owner-manager, and online magazine "Treasures of Wonderment" creator and publisher. Annick worked in the photo department of (BMS) Bristol-Myers Squibb in Princeton NJ, and also worked for Hutchinson Ind. in Trenton, NJ, as an Administrative Assistant. Annick was born and raised in France and came to the United States in 1974 as an "Au pair" which gave her the opportunity to learn how to speak fluent English. She got married and raised her three children in New Jersey. In 2005, Annick decided that it was time to move back to France which she did. She worked as a Bilingual Rep. for ACTA Road Assistance and worked as a freelance Wedding Photographer in the suburbs of Lyon. Life not being the same, she moved back to the U.S. in 2008 to discover beautiful Southern Arizona's wilderness and hot desert climate.
Her love for music and diversity inspired her to volunteer her free time, creative experience, and organizational skills to produce a few public events here and there in NJ and AZ. To list a couple, she created the 'NJ Independent Music' festival, 'Playing For Unity in Diversity’ festival, and the ‘One World Live Music’ festivals which ended up being canceled due to the county's mask mandate.
Annick became an American citizen in 1983. She traveled to Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Ivory Coast, Israel and Costa-Rica. She says, Arizona is not the end of the road.
She enjoys walking, nature, wildlife, music, traveling, photography, and loves organizing events. In 1974, she hitchhiked all around the United States and some parts of Canada.
When Annick left Costa-Rica to come back to Tucson she worked here and there until she was hired as a OPI French Interpreter for CyraCom International in Tucson. A few years later Annick decided to work from home as a Contractor for CLI (Certified Languages) and Stratus Video which today goes by the name of AMN Healthcare Language Services. Annick retired in 2020 when the C-19 Plandemic put the entire world on its knees.
