About Me
With more than 20 years of experience in marketing and corporate communication, I have led large-scale operations that have enabled me to acquire solid expertise ranging from the development of internal and external communication strategies to complete operational management.

I started my career as a consultant within Publicis, the world’s third-largest communications group, beginning with digital communication and crisis management. I have then led numerous event communication projects for public institutions and corporate clients, bringing together from 100 to 2,000 persons.

In 2018, I moved with my family to Seattle area and I joined the FACC PNW in 2021 as Project Manager to head up the organization’s communication, and enhance the business relationship between United States and France.
