I knew a guy who did accent erasure for people. In other words he helped them learn to speak unaccented English for various reasons... celebrities, business people, and so forth. He told me that some accents are harder to erase than others, French in particular, as a French accent is often perceived positively by hearers, so that French ESL speakers often view their accent as part of their identity.
In the case of this woman, I am guessing she learned her English in France, but I could be wrong.
