In Overland Park for 4 years, Catherine joined the Team AFKC in March 2019. Previously VicePresident, she is since May 2021, the President of AFKC, reelected in 2023.
Born and raised in France, she graduated from the Ecole Supérieure d’Assurances in Paris. She is a “serial expat”, after 7 years in Argentina and 5 years in Brazil.
With their 4 daughters Cassandre, Cecile, Camille and Jeanne, she travelled the world with her husband, CEO of a French Animal Health Company. In every place she was involved in the country where she lived. In Argentina, she was Vice Presidente of Buenos-Aires Accueil (association which welcomes French and Francophone people). In Sao Paulo she was President of Sao Paulo Accueil. In France, she coached Aquitaine (south west region) high school students, helping them creating their own startup company. She speaks Spanish and Portuguese and is actively learning English. She knows how difficult it is to properly speak a foreign language, and also knows the joy and satisfaction it brings in life! This is why she feels close to all the Alliance Française students working hard to learn her native language.
She is very excited to work with the team, because she is passionate about interculturality, and claims she yet found a great group of people at AFKC.
