I’ve been on a personal growth path most of my life. Today I work with others all around the world, whether they are individuals, teams or organisations. I’m here to help leaders to connect to their deepest human nature, to become the best version of who they are, so that they can lead with more courage, more heart, and make the difference they are meant to make.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a seeker, looking for growth in any possible ways. I was born and grew up in a small village in France with a strong desire to expand. My ancestors were farmers and barrel makers and I found my way to Paris and London, growing in leadership positions in some of the most globally renowned companies. My strategic thinking was valued and I was always chosen to work on businesses in need of a major turnaround. Transformation soon became a personal theme as well. I was so inspired by my first leadership coach that I decided to deepen my own journey of personal growth outside of work - and I have never stopped ever since.
I successfully led complex transformations, leveraging the power of the collective to deliver sustainable results. My teams were highly recognised as well as our plans. I worked under high pressure and I learnt what leading with courage really meant. I also learnt that change really starts with us, when we rise to the best of who we are. And that empowering leaders, allowing them to flourish and fostering collaboration can transform a business, a culture and create miracles.
At one point during this journey I went close to burn out and faced serious health issues. Those uncertain times gave me the impulse to reassess my life and where I was heading. I recognised that there were other parts of me that wanted to come forth, and I resolved that I would explore less conventional paths to discover deeper meaning, purpose and to come more fully into my true self. Yoga, meditation and some healing work became part of my daily routine alongside ongoing explorations with coaches, mentors and spiritual teachers. Though the results I was experiencing in my career were rewarding from a business perspective, I knew I was looking for more but I was not yet sure what it was.
Motherhood opened a totally new chapter in my life, both personally and professionally. I decided to pursue a long time dream and got certified as a professional coach. As I started coaching clients, I realised my whole journey was inspiring the way I was holding space for them. The transformation I witnessed in them was such a source of joy that I knew there and then, this would be my next professional home. Life guided me and eigtheen months later I left the boardroom. I became certified as a Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, being one of the few in Europe to be trained in person with Dr. Brené Brown, multiple times New York Times best selling author.
Today I am passionate about empowering others and being a partner on their journey of growth and transformation. My work is based on what I have learned along the way to help me to be a better leader, to live a more conscious, authentic and meaningful life, to overcome the challenges I faced over the years both in my personal and professional life.
I travelled the world, from Europe to the United States and Asia, to work with some of the best coaches, mentors and teachers in the field of transformation. I also learnt the hard way through personal experience. It has been a very humbling journey. I learnt that growth is a choice and change starts with us.
I learnt that transformation begins not only with actions but when we stop resisting and embrace what is, when we start loving ourselves and our life, no matter what obstacles we are presented with. Life is not always easy, nor is it a fairy tale. And we all go through challenges no matter who we are. Everyday I keep doing everything I can to be the best version of myself. My daughter is my inspiration, my most incredible teacher, and allows me to keep travelling on new roads, discovering deeper meanings and purpose. By showing up on my path I hope I can inspire others to do the same.
I don’t have all the answers. I’m an eternal seeker. I’m a learner, I make mistakes, and experience sometimes fear and self-doubt, just like the rest of humanity. However I find growth and gratitude on the journey and my commitment is to bring you the very best of what I’m living and learning. I’m grateful you’re here and I‘m excited for the journey ahead.
What I and
Transformation starts within
Challenges are opportunities in disguise
We always have a choice
We create our reality
Self awareness and self love matters
In telling the truth
In facing our shadows
In slowing down
In practising Joy and Gratitude
