Born in the south of Italy, in a small town called Cariati close to the sea, I moved to Switzerland with my mother to join my father, who was then working in Switzerland. I was raised bilingual Italian/French and also as the oldest of four sisters. Having married a Swiss, we then moved to Zürich and later to Spain for several years, I thus embraced the language and culture of both these countries. When in Spain, I enrolled in a master's degree in Psychology at the Open University of Barcelona.

I enjoy working with people as I am passionate about understanding their personality and what drives them. Besides, I also find it very interesting to immerse myself in new cultures and get to know people with different backgrounds and experiences. As a professional, I always seek for directions, sense and purpose when it comes to dealing with prospects but also, understand the client's requirements and needs.

I presently live in Fribourg with my husband Grégoire, who is also in the business, and our children Bérénice, Romain and Matthieu.

Personally:

  • I am an avid painter and lover of arts (painting, sculpture, photographs). Painting helps me challenging unknown parts of myself whilst sharing my inner world with others
  • I enjoy philosophy and how we can apply certain past models to the present
  • together with my son, we walked the Camino de Santiago de Compostella for 815km in 40 days. Besides all the km we did, we also went through an inner self-discovery of our personality and strengthen our relationship
  • with my love of Italian cooking from scratch, I totally fit the "Italian Mamma" cliché
