The strength of human relations is central to my practice. I distinguish myself by my ability to quickly identify legal issues and to suggest tailored solutions.
I have a creative mind and love to be on the go. I enjoy creating moments to share a good meal and making cocktails. I love playing tennis, skiing and snowboarding... I often dream about the next time I will go diving with my husband.
A proud mother of two young daughters, I am an authentic and passionate person whose sense of community, zest for life and sense of humour are unparalleled!
