Few words that define you as a person :
I like to encourage women to surpass themselves, pushing their mental and physical limits, as I am convinced that women's mountaineering can be much more successful.
What are your passions besides skiing / climbing / mountaineering / trail running ?
I don’t have time to do other things, these passions fill a life, especially with a baby coming.
Your best and worst memory in the mountains :
The best moments are at every sunrise: I'm always happy to be up there.
The worst moments are when I learn that friends are not coming back and I'm down.
Why do you feel part of the Millet family ?
Millet has trusted me since the beginning. I am proud to highlight a French brand that promotes mountaineering and feminine products in a constant concern for the environment.
What does that mean about you, Rise Up ?
Go even higher, even further and meet the challenges facing us.
Why do you advise people to go out in the mountains to do outdoor activities ?
Because up there is beautiful.
