Sophie

Première femme suisse à avoir atteint le sommet du K2. Première femme suisse et première française à avoir atteint le sommet de l’Annapurna1 et du Kangchenjunga et à avoir gravi 11 sommets de plus de 8000 mètres.

Suissesse, française et canadienne, je suis née à Lausanne. Domiciliée à Genève depuis 20 ans, j’ai débuté ma carrière dans l’hôtellerie de luxe notamment comme directrice des ventes et marketing à l’hôtel Richemond.

J’ai ensuite travaillé dans l’univers de la cosmétique, chez Clarins.
Puis j’ai dirigé avec mon frère une société d’organisation d’événements dans le domaine de la finance.

Aujourd’hui je consacre mon temps entre l’himalayisme et l’activité de conférencière.

Two films relate her adventures: "On va marcher sur l'Everest" and "K2-Une journée particulière" by François Damilano. The success of her 11th summit, Gasherbrum I in 2019, has given her the new nickname of "88,000 Lady".

It contributes to improving the chances of survival of pregnant women and newborns through better training of midwives in rural areas.

Because of strict lockdown in Kathmandu, food is drastically missing for street people. The organisation Local Women's Handicrafts coordinated by Sahin Pravin with the help of my friend Vibeke Andrea Sefland they manage to deliver around 300 meals every day. Lockdown has been extended for 10 more days. Help of everyone is needed: 1 dollar = 1 meal

It's raining on the deserted city of Kathmandu, between the lockdown and the cyclone in the Bay of Bengal that is now affecting Nepal, the atmosphere is rather gloomy. 😕
The spring season is coming to an end and the summer is not looking much better... The Pakistani authorities have placed Nepal in category C countries - that is to say, with a ban on entering Pakistan. 🇳🇵🇵🇰🇳🇵🇵🇰
The end of the lockdown in Kathmandu with the reopening of the airport is announced for May 31. I am therefore planning a return to Switzerland at the beginning of June. 🇨🇭🇨🇭
See you soon, Sophie
