Meet Our Staff

Veronique Savoye, School Director
Hi, everyone!  My name is Veronique Savoye.

I am the  School Director at Kaplan International Highline. A French native, American citizen, and long-time Seattle resident,  I studied in France and the United States to become an ESL instructor, but while in graduate school, was hired by American Express France where I developed corporate experience in customer service, sales, and team leadership. After I moved to the United States, I started my own language training business, and have spent the last 17 years as an adult educator, teaching French language and cross-cultural training programs about France and French culture. When I am not working, I love to travel to Europe every year with my teenage son.

Before teaching at Kaplan, I worked for UC Berkeley, Santa Monica City College, and University of the Pacific. I started teaching ESL 4 years ago and have done product development for Kaplan International before becoming the Academic Manager at Highline.
