Dhaulagiri | 8167 m

8167 m

Automne 2021



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.
