After becoming the first in her family to earn a bachelor’s degree, Nou served as an AmeriCorps member for two years with College Possible as a high school coach. Seeing her students graduate from high school and pursue their college dreams motivated her to do something she’d always wanted to do— live abroad in France.
Nou lived and worked in France for seven months as an English teaching assistant, helping high school students improve their English comprehension and oral skills. After returning home to Minnesota she went back to doing something she loves: helping students get ready for college. Through the Get Ready program in St. Paul, Nou gained valuable experience and knowledge that were instrumental in paving the way for her current position with AchieveMpls.
Nou is a proud alum of Patrick Henry High and thrilled to be back working with students at her old school. She is also a proud North Minneapolis homeowner and mother of two girls. When she has time, Nou likes to explore and discover different places and events around the Twin Cities. She also enjoys watching home renovation and cooking shows on Netflix, dreaming of the day when her house and cooking will be half as good as what she sees on TV.
