Bio

In search for a work life balance I left my beloved Dublin and moved to Annecy, France (2015). Before coming to France I worked in HR and PM for 9 years in Ireland & Canada. Currently I am a Coach & Learning Programme Manager at The Akkademy (Geneva) and a visiting lecturer at Haute Ecole de Gestion in Geneva. 

In my private time I hike in the surrounding mountains, practice Birkam yoga, I continue to work on my French & learn about French heritage.  I’m passionate about positive psychology, personal development, latest technologies, history and travel.

Enjoying every minute. I am the type of person whose glass is not half full, neither half empty but REFILLABLE:) also I am known for saying and meaning: Happy Monday!

My motto: If I don’t try, I won’t know.
