Mikael was born in France in Lyon, most known as the capital of French gastronomy.
Mikael has always been surrounded by children since a very young age: His mother was taking care of children 6 weeks to 7 years old in a family daycare run in their own home. His skills and principles in early childhood education have been inspired by the French Ecole Maternelle standards.
After he graduated High school, Mikael joined a business school that specializes in international marketing and management: IDRAC Lyon.
As a freshman, he had the opportunity to study and work in Rhode Island and Florida for a year and a half. Mikael kept a strong taste for travel and adventure from this positive experience that also raised his awareness on the beauty of multi-cultural work environments.
As a work experience in France, Mikael was a manager in the catering industry and in logistics, but after moving to New York, he went back to his roots as an early childhood educator at the Lycée Français de New York. Passionate about learning, language teaching, and sharing cultures and experience, it is with great enthusiasm and full of energy that Mikael joins the VHG Group managers’ team , to contribute to this great mission of educating our future citizens of the world.
