Cécile has always had two passions: education and the arts. Starting as a History teacher in secondary schools in France, she then graduated from Sciences Po Paris’ doctoral School in 20th Century History. Cécile became a lecturer in Political and Cultural History at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. Moving to London, she lectured at Her Majesty’s Service at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and graduated at Birbeck College in Change Management. Coming back to France, she returned to her old stomping ground and worked in Sciences Po Paris for the Directorate of International Affairs. In February 2012, Cécile became Director of International Relations at Gobelins, l’école de l’image as well as Executive Director of Gobelins Summer School. Although she has spent the majority of her career in education, Cécile has taken professional training as a make-up artist and continued her passion for the visual arts by founding a French theatre company in Scotland, Molière for Lunch. Aside from this, Cécile has always had a most ‘troubling’ obsession with crime literature and the works of Alfred Hitchcock.
