I am from Caen in Normandy, France; where I was teaching English in middle school.
I came at SIU to be a French T.A. but the classes I took for the 9 required credit hours were so interesting that I decided to register for the Master’s degree in International Relations. I am also trying to get the Certificate in Sustainable Development from the Geography Department.
My interests are International Relations in general; with a focus on Middle East and European politics, and NGOs (though I find interest in a lot of things); and also Sustainable Development.
My BA is from Central Bible College. My MPA is from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
In my doctoral effort, I am interested in ethics in public administration. Particularly, the priority public administrators place on bureaucratic and/or democratic values in their work as well as the effectiveness of the role of graduate public administration education in either helping formulate or reinforce those values.
BA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale
