Current Interns:


Kate Boilard, Southern New Hampshire University

Bonjour! My name is Kate Boilard and I am a recent graduate from Southern New Hampshire University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing and English. I’ve always had a passion for French culture and had the opportunity to take a class trip to Québec City when I was a freshman in high school. It was an amazing experience and taught me that there are many places that celebrate French culture. I’m excited to join the FAC team as a writing intern and learn new skills while creating meaningful connections.


Jasmine Grace, High School Intern

Bonjour! My name is Jasmine Grace, and I am currently a high school sophomore. I am writing the Franco-American Centre’s blog (among other things), and sincerely enjoy this opportunity to learn about French culture in New England and around the world. It’s great to be working with the motivated and knowledgeable people who run this organization. I’m learning French in school and became involved with the FAC when I began to help organize the monthly Teen Prêt-à-Parler event. I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity to work with the FAC! 


Kaleb Houle-Lawrence, High School Intern

Bonjour tout le monde! My name is Kaleb Houle-Lawrence and I am a high school sophomore. Along with Jasmine, I am in charge of writing a bimonthly blog post for the Franco-American Centre. I will be helping plan various events with the other interns as well. I chose to intern with FAC because I have a deep-seated passion for both the French language and French culture. Being able to blog about something I am so passionate about is certainly an incredible opportunity. FAC is truly home to the physical representation of this passion, including the group Teen Prêt-à-Parler, which I helped develop and continue to help run on a monthly basis. FAC really is a place for self-development and discovery, which I have found to be crucial during my relationship with the organization and its leaders. I am honored to intern with this organization and the wonderful team behind the scenes of it all. 


Jillian Jacques, University of New Hampshire

Hello, my name is Jillian Jacques. I was born and raised in New Hampshire and I am a recent graduate of the University of New Hampshire (Go Wildcats!). I studied Business Writing and Digital Studies and minored in Spanish and Linguistics. I have 10 siblings, and the best parents anyone could ask for. Both my parents come from French Canadian backgrounds and learned some French. I am excited to contribute to French culture through grant writing at the Franco-American Centre! I hope to learn new skills and have fun while doing so!

Mackenzie LeLievre , University of New Hampshire
Bonjour! My name is Mackenzie LeLievre and I am a junior studying Marketing at the University of New Hampshire. I am thrilled to be interning at the FAC as I come from a very strong French Canadian background and most of my extended family is from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. I am excited to take part in a variety of different marketing opportunities and projects with the FAC to learn new skills and work with wonderful people!
Kierra Martin, Southern New Hampshire University
Greetings everyone! My name is Kierra Martin and I am a first year student at Southern New Hampshire University. I am passionately pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and expect to graduate in January of 2025. This fall, I am also new to the FAC Internship team, and I am really eager to see what I can contribute and learn from my peers! I may only have little understanding of the French language, but I am confident that by the end of the year, I will be more involved and immersed in the culture. I am exhilarated to get to know everyone and work with an amazing team!
Joseph Pellegrino, University of New Hampshire
Bonjour, my name is Joe Pellegrino and I am a recent graduate of the University of New Hampshire. As a graphic designer, I’ve created merch, various illustrations, social media posts, event materials, and graphics for the FAC website. Having run multiple online stores for eight years now, I’ve accumulated comprehensive knowledge of the adobe suite. This includes Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Lightroom. The Franco American Centre has allowed me to take my graphic and web design skills to the next level. It’s been an amazing experience, and has had much to offer in terms of experience. Everyone working at the FAC have been truly fantastic as-well, making it all the more worthwhile.


Chloe Rich, Southern New Hampshire University

My name is Chloe Rich and I am a senior at Southern New Hampshire University. I’m currently studying Marketing with a minor in Business Analytics and I’ll be graduating in December of 2021. I’m working with the Franco American Centre on Marketing, Communications and Analytics with a main focus on social media. Some projects I have been working on are French Word Wednesday and Fun FACt Friday, two social media campaigns aimed at sharing French language and history with our followers. I am also working on virtual events for the FAC to host throughout the Spring term and a newsletter that encompasses blog posts by other interns and other aspects of French culture like fashion, food, entertainment, and more. I look forward to all this internship will bring me!


Eric Rodriguez, Southern New Hampshire University

Bonjour! My name is Eric Rodriguez and I am a senior at Southern New Hampshire University. I am a graphic design major. I am one the newest members of the FAC intern team. I have experience with using multiple Adobe programs such as Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. Most of my current work comes from school projects, but I hope to add more to that list through the FAC. My goal is to help the FAC in any way I can and create new graphics for them. I am very appreciative of this amazing opportunity the FAC has given me.

Cassie Rowett

Bonjour, my name is Cassie Rowett and I am a grant writer intern for the Franco-American Centre for the Fall semester. I graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelor’s in English and Creative Writing. Languages and learning about the cultures is my biggest passion. I worked with the Centre since the 2021 Spring semester. During my time there, I researched grants, edited blog posts and wrote for applications. I absolutely enjoyed my time there. I’m honored to continue working for the team and the Fall semester.
