Born and raised in the small medieval town of St-Ursanne, in the French part of Switzerland, my life journey brought me to live and travel in different countries. After earning a degree in Graphic Design at l’Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Geneva, I moved to Berlin, Germany, where I lived for seven years and became fluent in German. In the mid-90s I moved to New York City where I continued to work as a designer and art director in the advertising, fashion and financial industry. It is where I began to learn English.


In NYC, while learning a new language and adjusting to a new culture, my personal introspection process continued to deepen through the visual art, poetry, and various styles of dance and expressive movement. At the time I also began to integrate my studies in meditation, imagery, yoga, holistic health, reiki and Psychosynthesis in my work and everyday life. Those lifelong studies taught me to express, connect and communicate in ways I would have never understood otherwise and lead me to a career change I never regretted.


I have been teaching and coaching French since 2003, privately, in colleges and private schools. My understanding of the learning and creative process guided me in developing a method connecting my students to joy and creativity through natural life's interactions. It has been my greatest privilege to guide my students and witness their progress, struggles and successes in learning to communicate and express who they are in their own French creative way.

My travels in various parts of the world and many cultural experiences also 

influence my work. In my free time I continue to explore my inner life through poetry, art, dance, cooking and by nurturing my friendships. As for my own blossoming... I will always travel the small and big roads of this big beautiful world. 

I also offer Soul Conversations at SoulSpace Counseling, both in French and English. Visit
