Lawyer, I began my career in international taxation before concentrating on strategic philanthropy. I graduated from Lyon III in taxation and from HEC Paris with a specialization in entrepreneurship. I spent several years in NYC before returning to my native Montreal, where I teach ethics, governance and business law. It was when I learned that my mother had digestive cancer that my interest in the fight against cancer took on a new professional meaning. I decided to join the Montreal Cancer Institute’s Major Gifts and Philanthropic Development team and play an active role in the fight against cancer.
