Séverine studied in Nancy and received her degree in medicine with commendation in October 2003, having undertaken a research project in the accident and emergency department of Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg (CHL). She then became a doctor within that department for several years following her degree. On leaving the CHL, she joined the Medical Service of the European Parliament in Luxembourg as a Medical Advisor. Whilst working there she completed a 2 year course studying aesthetic medicine in Paris. This is an area she finds very interesting and plans to pursue, alongside her career as a General Practitioner.
