Catherine was born and raised in Guadeloupe, a department of France in the French West Indies. Her passion and interest in ancient languages influenced her to pursue the study of Classical Languages in the Lycée Honoré de Balzac in Paris. Catherine then went on to complete a Master’s degree in Classical Languages at the University of Paris X. She has taught French, Latin and Ancient Greek in the academy of Versailles and at the academy of Guadeloupe. While at the academy of Guadeloupe, she often accompanied students to the archaeological sites of Europe and most recently had a life changing experience in Ivory Coast. When not at work Catherine loves reading, theatrical activities, traveling and photography. She has also developed an interest in cooking for which she has received “approving looks” from her family, leading her to believe that she is a promising chef.
