Constantly challenging the status quo and developing sustainable strategies and solutions to help improve the state of our planet.
I am a strategy and sustainability advisor, and angel investor working at the intersection of sustainability and innovation. I recently joined the sustainability team at Roland Berger’s Dubai office after working for more than 7 years with Strategy& (part of PwC) in Canada, the US and the Middle East.
As an investor and advisor, I currently support social entrepreneurs and startups in several sustainability areas including circularity and recycling, environmental education, and ESG/sustainability solutions and software.
I previously founded and sold an award-winning business in sustainable and educational travel. During that time, I ran expeditions at 30 destinations on 5 continents, met incredible people, discovered the most beautiful natural and cultural wonders of our planet, and provided life-changing experiences to thousands of travelers. I also developed and coordinated an entrepreneurship course at McGill University in Canada.
My curiosity and passion for innovation also led me to complete a PhD in strategy and innovation management at Polytechnique Montreal and to take part in one of the largest Management research projects in Canadian history with research missions around the globe including Switzerland, China, Taiwan, India, France and California.
I am also an outdoor and wilderness aficionado and love taking my kids on adventure trips whenever possible.
