I have always enjoyed entertaining family and friends at home and discovering new dishes. I grew up in Montréal and, in 1978, I graduated from the School of Architecture at McGill University before starting my career in Toronto. After working at Arthur Erickson’s firm, I earned an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University. I then turned my attention to the not-for-profit sector and joined the Canadian Cancer Society’s senior leadership team. At the end of my 15-year tenure, I was appointed interim President and CEO in 2012 and in 2016.
Together with my husband, Michel, I now spend my time among Brussels, San Diego, Montréal and Toronto, where my son, Philip, lives.
