I was born to a French mama and Irish Papa in the USA. I have two amazing younger brothers and we all speak both French and English. This is the secret behind my unplaceable accent ;)
My father, an avid sailor, took us to live on a boat for a year when I was 11. We sailed all through the Caribbean and then explored the Mediterranean. This is probably where my sense of adventure comes from...
After our sailing adventure on Soleil we settled in Vence a beautiful little town behind Nice. My family home is still there an we run our French Retreat there every year.
Struggling with the idea of whether to go to medical school in England or go a different direction I decided to take a year out and travel. Nepal was my destination of choice and WOW was it just the most incredible eye opening journey. I had done my first TTC by this point so taught yoga in an orphanage while away.
During my second Yoga TTC at Ashiyana Yoga School I met some amazing women. One was my darling Maudie. Together we formed Loveyogabum and ran Yoga Retreats together in France, England an Morocco whist I was doing my Undergrad at UCL and Masters at LSHTM.
After my Masters I travelled to India to teach Anatomy & Physiology for Ashiyana Yoga School. With too much distance between us but still a lot of love Maudie and I decided to evolve from Loveyogabum. Maudie went on the found Unearth Yoga.
Traveling to India turned out to be pretty lucky for me as I ended up meeting the the best adventure partner;) We founded Yoga Healing Nature and have been traveling running our Yoga Retreats, trainings and workshops together.

Academically my training has been very rich and I have been blessed to attend some of the finest Research driven Universities in the world. Learning is one of my biggest passions in life and I will never stop.
I completed my classical academic education in London starting with a BSc in Biomedical Science from University College London which immersed me into the 'life sciences' and gave me a solid base in research, logical thinking and decision-making. I then continued on to complete my Maters at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Nutrition for Global Health. My Masters built on the essential research and academic techniques I had learnt at UCL and is a key solid foundation to my work in Nutrition.
Throughout my time at UCL and LSHTM I spent significant time volunteering for MSF UK and travelling abroad to work/volunteer whenever I could. I travelled to Kenya to work with SEP Kenya and in 2013 I travelled abroad to complete my Master's Thesis with the MRC Human Nutrition Research Unit in Gambia. Being able to tie in my passion to see the world and help with my work was always one of my goals.
Once I had completed my Masters I felt a natural draw to work one on one with people. This led me to complete my one year at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.
My academic education has been key to my person but the foundations and core of who I am has been shaped by my journey traveling to different parts of the world. Read about my story...
