Valerie (Foucachon) Abraham grew up in Lyon, France where she developed a love for books and culture thanks to having a pastor as a father, and a teacher as mother. She studied under Wesley Callihan in high school through Schola Classical Tutorials, and then attended Logos School in Moscow, Idaho, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She then moved on to New Saint Andrews College, graduating Cum Laude in Spring of 2015 with a B.A. in Classical Liberal Arts and Culture. Her Senior Thesis on the correspondence of Marguerite de Navarre allows her to combine her experience in French and Latin with research of one of her favorite periods of history: The Renaissance and Reformation. The thesis was featured in Shield Wall, a quarterly academic journal by New Saint Andrews.
