Born and raised in Strasbourg, France, I moved to the U.S. (Michigan, then Kansas) in my early 20s as a doctoral candidate in American civilization at the University of Strasbourg. This degree was merging seamlessly my two bachelor degrees in English and film. Eventually, I joined KU's Ph.D program in American Studies. Upon completion of my Ph.D, I applied to work at the Honors Program at KU because it looked like a synthesis of many of my experiences. I've been with Honors since 2011, and it has been a pleasure!
What I Do at Honors
In Honors, I oversee students’ journeys to become life-long learners and develop the skills they need to launch successful careers. More specifically, I am responsible for Honors courses, our curriculum, and our co-curricular programming. To this end, I work very closely with all my colleagues across campus and in Honors, especially with Lesley and Ed.
Why I Love Working in Honors
I love Honors because students push me to be a more creative and invested instructor, an innovative administrator, and a better-rounded and engaged member of the community.
