ADVENTURER & ATHLETE

More about me

I’m a French Canadian adventurer and endurance athlete with an insatiable thirst to explore the world.

I thrive in pushing beyond my limits, discovering the full potential of human beings and exploring the unknown.

 

To inspire and motivate is what I do best.  I am an influential female role model.  My mission is to keep alive the faith for all people to accomplish big things for themselves.  I am a sherpa of dreams!

 

ADVENTURER & ATHLETE

Beside competing and undertaking personal challenges, I respond to projects that require my physical and mental endurance along with specific field experiences I possess.  I can help resolve issues in humanitarian businesses, contribute to geographic explorations, and feed researches on exercise physiology and psychology.

Proud ambassador and sponsored athlete: Xact Nutrition, Exo, Strong Bars, Brix, Stoked Oats, Platinum Rig, Ospreyclinique sportive HPH.

 

SPEAKER

I motivate people to take action when I share insights and accomplishments as a female athlete and adventurer.  I am a living example of being the leader of my life.  I set high goals for myself and make them happen.  I transform dreams into reality. With leadership skills, I create results, which in turn, inspire people.

RUNNING COACH/PERSONAL TRAINER

I lead individuals toward their goal by creating personalized training plan and follow-up structure. I help them surpass their limits and get new results in their fitness level, using CourseàPied.ca, CrossFit and Spartan SGX methodology, combined with my experience as an athlete. My coaching approach is more than just a written plan. It is the unique relationship built by the athlete and the coach that makes it successful.

Part of the professional association Réseau des massothérapeutes professionnels du Québec, and with more than 10 years of experience, I help reduce symptoms related to sport, stress, fatigue, and injury.
