Ariane is a French-American who was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her interest in aerospace started at a young age: she earned her pilot’s license at the age of 17 and spent many of her early internships at NASA Ames Research Center. She attended Stanford University where she earned her Bachelor of Science with Honors in Science, Technology, and Society with a focus in Management Science and Engineering. Her undergraduate honors thesis was entitled, “Sino-American Relations in Space: Cooperation, Competition, or Coopetition?” Following her studies, Ariane worked in management consulting, first with Accenture based in San Francisco and then with Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington, DC. With Accenture, she lived and worked on IT projects in the Philippines, South Africa, Brazil, and the US. With Booz Allen Hamilton as a senior consultant in the Aerospace and Defense commercial consulting group, she helped develop strategies and solve operational issues for executives of the world’s top aerospace and defense companies. Outside of work Ariane enjoys international travel, cooking, basketball, and hiking.

SGAC is very excited to have Ariane on its team and warmly welcomes her to the Space Generation family.

Ad Astra!
