Born in France and proud of her Normandy roots, Véronique is an attorney educated both in France and in Chicago (Northwestern University). Married to a North Shore native, their family has lived in various neighborhoods in the city. They relocated to Evanston a few years ago for the quality of life it offered to raise their two teenage daughters. Véronique is an active member within the French community and involved in the promotion of French culture and development of the Normandy region in the Chicago area. She was a Board member of the Groupe Professionnel Francophone (an Association of Francophile Professionals). She is also a member of the French-American Chamber of Commerce and of the Association des Français et Francophones de Chicago.
As a longtime volunteer at the Lycée Français de Chicago, she served on the School Advisory Council and chaired various Parents Association Committees. While volunteering at the school, she started to help foreign parents and staff members in their relocation process in Chicago and this is how she discovered her interest in real estate. What started as community work has now become her full-time job.
For over two decades Véronique worked in Evanston for a large international not-for-profit organization where she managed large multicultural teams in the global communication field. This unique work environment made her a problem solver, often under tight deadlines and a set budget. It also taught her agility, particularly when tailoring services to better meet the needs of an international clientele. Constantly navigating between cultures has honed her listening skills and her ability to help others find common grounds and make pivotal decisions in stressful situations.
