About me

Graduated from an MBA in Business & Entrepreneurship in 2015 and worked in Sales/Tech Sales for almost a decade.

In coaching, I leverage a combination of Co-Active coaching and Positive Intelligence to empower Fun, Mission-Driven Leaders & Entrepreneurs to Ignite Their Mindset & 10X Their Confidence 🚀

I also help coaches go through certification all while building a thriving business 🚀


I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and I am accredited Associate Certified Coach (ACC) by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

When I'm not helping individuals reach their goals, you can find me dancing 💃 (a lot, it's my passion), spending time with my loved ones, volunteering, traveling 🌎✈️, learning new languages, listening to podcasts, cooking or hiking.​

 

I'm from France but I learned how to speak English & Spanish while traveling the world. Early on, I realized that traveling will always be a big part of my life. I became "addicted" to it, exploring, going on new adventures, discovering new cultures, connecting with new people and their energy is so fulfilling to me!

A motto that I love: "When nothing is planned, everything can happen". I learned to be okay with being surprised, with things not going as planned and "thinking on my feet". I learn to find opportunities in adversity!

Having traveled to more than 27 countries by myself, I was forced to grow tremendously, to get out of my comfort zone, to broaden my horizons, to meet new people and enjoy the solitude of my own company. And wow, I feel incredibly grateful for this everyday!

When it comes down to business, for me, it's all about impact!
Let's face it—many of us encounter daily professional and personal challenges without adequate support.
Having support in our careers and personal goals is crucial for motivation, innovation, success and continued growth.


Having a coach made a significant difference in my growth journey. It helped me realize I have a choice, and being conscious of that allowed me to close the gap from where I was to where I wanted to be.

We all have things we want, but are we willing to disrupt the status quo to get them? Are we ready to be intentional about what really matters to us?

The story that led me to coaching

Like many of us, I spent much of my time fixated on achieving 'success.' I graduated with an MBA in Business & Entrepreneurship from France in 2015. Driven by ambition, my focus was on accomplishments. After several years of diverse work experiences and global travels, I felt it was time to establish my career and secure a job in my field. It seemed like the logical path.

I transitioned into the tech industry from sales and hospitality, seeing it as a jackpot opportunity for future growth. For a while, it satisfied me.

However, during the pandemic, while working remotely, I found myself deeply unfulfilled. I was overwhelmed, I felt stuck and was lacking purpose. Despite my efforts, I couldn't shake off self-doubt and exhaustion.

I was overworked and burnt out, constantly prioritizing the needs of the business over my own. As a people pleaser, I often said yes too readily, neglecting my own well-being. My confidence waned, my healthy habits disappeared, and I had no time for self-care. It became a vicious cycle. I kept pushing through, maintaining a façade of composure externally, while internally, stress and anxiety left me frazzled, numb and emotionally drained.

I believed that because I wasn't physically injured, I had no right to complain. Mental health is often stigmatized, yet it is as vital as physical health. Despite this, I couldn't help but wonder why I couldn't 'have it together' like everyone else.

From a state of joy, drive, and authenticity, I found myself restless and depleted. It forced me to step back, pause, and reflect on what truly mattered to me.

How could I reintroduce self-care, passion, confidence, and meaning into my life? I didn't have all the answers, but I knew there was something missing, a longing for a deeper sense of purpose.

 Getting out of my own way & Thriving again!

During my travels, I discovered the immense fulfillment of helping people and communities, making a tangible impact, and supporting individuals on their journeys. Whether it was assisting children, mentoring friends or colleagues with their goals or projects, or volunteering, those moments ignited a profound sense of purpose within me.

After rediscovering my purpose and reclaiming my confidence through coaching, I realized that my journey wasn't just about personal growth, it was about empowering others to embark on their transformative paths too. Guided by this newfound clarity, I delved deeper into coaching, complementing my insights with a Positive Intelligence course and enrolling in the esteemed Co-Active Coaching Program from CTI.

Now, as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, I have the privilege of guiding individuals through their own journeys of self-discovery and empowerment. Witnessing their transformations fuels my passion and reinforces my belief in the profound impact of coaching.

Coaching was one of the best investment I've made in myself. I was able to:

  • Take action

  • Embrace failures

  • Gain new perspectives

  • Live more in the moment 

  • Feel empowered, inspired and hopeful again

  • Experience powerful shifts and transformation

  • Reconnect with my strengths, values and sense of purpose

Through this process, I've come to understand that many individuals face similar challenges to those I once encountered—overthinking, self-doubt, burnout, and the struggle to set boundaries. If you find yourself resonating with these struggles, feeling stuck in your life or career, know that you're not alone.

I'm here to offer support and guidance. My mission is to empower ambitious, fun, mission-driven leaders and entrepreneurs to regain clarity, elevate their mindset, and pursue their passions freely.

Remember:

  • It is possible to achieve your goals without depleting yourself.

  • Engagement flourishes when you pursue your passions.

  • Daring to be yourself inspires others to do the same.

  • You can embody success, confidence, and authenticity simultaneously.
