Originally from California’s Bay Area, Eliane attended bilingual French school growing up, and spent much of her childhood in Brittany, France. She studied philosophy at the University of Chicago, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and with Special Departmental Honors. Her senior thesis, on the relationship between reason and desire in Kant’s ethics, was awarded the Lee Family Essay Prize for best essay in practical philosophy; she also received grants for advanced language study in Bolivia, and from the Human Rights Center to advocate for immigrant women’s rights in Mexico City. After school, she moved to Paris to work as a paralegal for White & Case’s International Arbitration group, assisting on French, Spanish, and English-language disputes. Although she has not yet chosen which one, Eliane will be attending a top 6 law school in the fall.
Eliane has experience developing and teaching elementary school art curriculums, tutoring middle school special needs students, and providing college-level writing feedback. She was also the unofficial law school application and LSAT guru for her paralegal coworkers at White & Case. At Cambridge Coaching, Eliane focuses on application coaching and LSAT preparation.
Eliane recently sailed 1,300 miles down the coast of California to the southern tip of Baja, with one other crew member and a 30 foot sailboat. In her free time, you will find Eliane in one of two favorite places: the mountains or the ocean.
