After 10 years of my life spent working in the financing and banking industry, I suffered from burnout. At the time, I was an employee, a team manager and an entrepreneur responsible for 12 employees. I was also a mother to two children, occasionally homeschooling and organizing an overseas move from France to Canada. I had such an imbalanced life; I disregarded my personal well-being completely.
I decided to take charge of my mental and physical health and spent the last 12 years studying mindfulness and other matters. I am now a certified meditation and mindfulness teacher, yoga teacher and Reiki master.
I now work with my husband on website creation and testing for small businesses, eventually allowing us to work from home full-time.
I’m also in charge of the financial investments for our company.
I am currently working with clients as a senior project manager in information technology.
My 20+ years of experience in IT have allowed me to progress from junior developer to senior Project Manager while growing my own business on the side. I have a PMP (Project Management Professional) certification, I have been a ToastMaster member since 2016, and I am now the treasurer of the PMUT club in Toronto since 2018.
Living and working in 4 different cities – Paris, Montréal, London and Toronto – has broadened my understanding of cultural differences and their impact on professional life. Moving to different cities and countries, not to mention working in 2 different languages, allowed me to understand how everyone works and thinks in a different way, even within one culture!
