Bio:
Chloë has competed in the equestrian three-day eventing across the U.S., Canada, and England and is an avid telemark skier and mountain biker. She studied French in Dijon, France. Chloe is an activist for sustainability and wrote her thesis on the socio-political perspectives of climate change in France and the U.S. She is always looking to try new things - she was once a member of the pit crew for a prototype Porsche in a professional race. Among the long list of things Chloë would like to do in the near future are hiking the Haute Route from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland, visiting all the National Parks, learning a third language, and training a wild mustang!

What is a powerful moment you experienced at school?
Answering a question in a lecture of 200 students at a French University— the professor understood what I said and thanked me for my comment! I had never been a nervous participant in school before and realized the courage it takes to raise your hand when you're unsure!
