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.
