I was born and raised in France, and came to the US to work as an engineer at the beginning of my professional life. Since then I had several professional lifetimes in this lifetime!
After almost a decade as an engineer in corporate America, priorities changed drastically after the birth of my daughter. As an avid yoga practitioner for more than a decade, I went on and completed my 200-Hour and 500-Hour Yoga Teacher Certifications in Brazil and India. After teaching Yoga for a few years, I started a company with a fellow yogi dedicated to providing immersive Yoga Teacher Training and Retreats worldwide. This 3-year adventure made me come across amazing people’s paths and brought me extraordinary experiences around the world. It showed me how yoga, meditation, and daily practice can touch and change people’s lives.
During those years, I studied and taught lots of different disciplines such as Yoga, Ayurvedic principles, meditation, and nutrition. I taught nutrition classes during the trainings, emphasizing the importance of the connection between great nutrition and great yoga/meditation practice.
I have always loved good cuisine and good nutrition. Food has always been part of my culture and life. The prospect of getting formal knowledge about it was very exciting to me, and so I decided to learn more formally about nutrition, and became a certified holistic Nutritionist from the Wellspring School for Healing Art in Portland. The comprehensive curriculum, holistic approach, as well as the Traditional Chinese Medicine foundation of this 2-year program, were very appealing to me.
My professional and personal journey gives me a unique mindset in what I do. Combining Eastern and Western philosophies with my diverse educational background and different cultural perspective allows me to approach the world of nutrition and self care in a truly holistic way.
My passion is to empower people to reconnect with their inner wisdom to nourish their body and mind. I thrive to meet people where they are on their own journey to health, nutrition and self-discovery.
I was once told that my teaching style reflects my life experience and personality: down to earth, accessible, and compassionate. I strive to bring the same qualities to my holistic nutritionist practice, and I love witnessing people making the changes that work for their body, mind, and spirit!
