Since 2012 I've  studied and worked with experts in social media, branding, event planning and hosting, website design, organizational structure and more. I have been working specifically with people in the field of non profits and eco-conscious living (permaculture and ecovillages). 


During that time, I have spoken at countless engagements from intimate gatherings to crowds of hundreds. I have planned/ [co]hosted a wide variety events  for hundreds of people to small specific visioning and planning sessions.  Below are some of my exemplary events, organizational processes with businesses/ organizations, and accreditation I've accumulated.

​When I was a child, my parents moved with a group of like minded people to start a French community, La Cite Ecologique Ecovillage, in Ham-Nord Quebec during 1984. 

In my early adulthood I helped spearhead the second sister Cite Ecologique community in New Hampshire. Because of my upbringing, I have been trained in many aspects to create an eco-micro society (as well as traveling to gain certifications in Ecovillage design). As an adult in the community, I was  involved in multiple committees including H.R., finance, and outreach.


Another passion of mine, is preparing and cooking fresh and locally sourced food!  I have catered food to my 130 person community and large events for over 12 years.
