Effy Bentley first came to the US at age 15, as an exchange student. Before leaving, she made a promise that she would come back and become a French teacher in the US. Fast forward 10 years, during which she earned a BA in English and a MA in French as a foreign language in France, and completed many internships teaching French in London, Russia, and Argentina, Effy received a scholarship to study a MA in French at the University of New Mexico. Upon completing her second MA, she worked in an independent school in Albuquerque for 5 years. She taught all levels of French, from sixth grade French to French 5 (seniors).

Effy moved to the Salt Lake City area to follow her husband, who was offered a position there. They enjoy doing sports, all outdoors activities, and exploring national parks. Effy is also an avid runner.

Effy owns a cat, Phoenix, and a dog, Firenze, both named after Harry Potter characters. Effy's favorite shoes are Nike Blazers and she has owned six pairs since she was 17.
