A graduate of the world-renowned Institut d’Etudes Politique de Paris, Victoire continued her liberal education by completing a Master’s degree in Economics at the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne. Beginning her career in London as a mergers and acquisitions banker at Smith Barney (since acquired by Morgan Stanley), she next entered the entertainment industry, working for MTV and Fashion TV before opening her own music production company in Paris. In 2002, she relocated to Southern California, returning to the financial sector where she accepted positions as a financial advisor, first for UBS Wealth Management and then Merrill Lynch. She then worked as a business operations manager for a manufacturing company prior to embarking on a more independent path, advising clients on 401(k) plans and employee benefits. Soon after her arrival, she married a UCI Mathematics Professor with whom she has a high-school-aged daughter. Most recently, she has begun consulting for small and medium-sized companies looking to export or expand in the US. Her company USAFrance, LLC Dba ReussirUSA© focuses on helping French entrepreneurs with business immigration services, business plan and financial forecast to support E2 and EB-5 applications, and market research and installation. She may be most familiar to WACOC members as the organizer of Bastille Day in OC this past July and her ongoing involvement with Frenchly Yours, a networking organization expanding cultural and business ties between SoCal and France. Trilingual in French, English, and Russian, Victoire is an intrepid traveler, having toured over 40 countries. She is a global citizen, an avid reader, critical thinker, and an enthusiast of hiking, ocean kayaking and, of course, fine wines.
