After having worked as a technologist, manager, executive and until recently Vice-President of Culture at SAP, I realized that I am truly passionate about alleviating unnecessary suffering at work.
To that end I have founded two companies, Workrise and Niagara Coaching. Workrise helps people and organizations to create smarter workplaces. Niagara coaching helps technology executives to build and nurture productive and loyal teams.
Besides being a certified Integral Coach, I hold a Master of Science in Computer Science from Telecom Paris Tech, Paris, France and a Master of Business Administration from EDHEC, Nice, France. I am also a graduate from the Science Of Happiness class taught by the Greater Good Science Center.
I am a champion of gender diversity in Hi-Tech and currently sit on the Board of Trustees of the Anita Borg Institute, which was founded on the belief that women are vital to building technology that the world needs. I am also a mentor at the Holberton school of San Francisco.
I am an active member of the French national committee for foreign commerce, which is appointed by the French Prime Minister.
I have been married for 26 years, and am the mother of two young adults, one daughter and one son. During my spare time I resource myself with running, cycling, swimming, meditation, yoga and cooking.
