I am driven by a deep passion for people and to help them unlock their full potential.
I grew up in French-Canadian Montreal, training as a figure skater and engineer – a strange mix even by Quebecois standards. While I loved both the freedom of ice skating and the predictability of science, I quickly realized I thrived most when interacting with people.
So I left the engineering world and became a management consultant, which allowed me to work with interesting clients and address some of their biggest challenges. That was fun! When I had a chance to serve Amgen, a large biotech, I fell in love with the organization: the mission, the products, the people – all amazing. Not to mention the California weather! So I moved from cold Montreal to sunny Los Angeles and, over the next 13 years, became an accomplished sales and marketing leader.
I have a deep passion for people, and inspiring them to unlock their true potential is what drives me. I value Trust, Connection, Care, Courage and Growth above all. Since I am always looking to grow, it became clear that my next role would be going in a different direction.
As an engineer and corporate leader I often found myself guilty of looking at people as “brains on sticks”, so as a Zone client I found the whole person approach incredibly powerful. I was also highly impressed by how harnessing our collective intelligence allowed us to resolve our most challenging problems. So in September 2017, after 13 years at Amgen, I decided to join The Zone!
I am now based in Chicago with my girlfriend Fabiane, a resident physician at University of Chicago, and we are very happy enjoying a beautiful view of Lake Michigan every day.
