I was born in the French Alps and spent all my childhood outside, walking, running, skiing, enjoying nature and the mountains. In my professional career as a sport climber I was able to claim a number of titles: twice world champion, three overall world cup wins, and nearly 50 international podiums. In 2000, I free-climbed “Hasta la Vista” 8c/c+ at Mt Charleston, Nevada. At that time there was only one other woman, (Josune Bereziartu), who had reached such a level.

Searching for new horizons and fresh experiences, I travelled to many countries for bouldering, trad climbing, and alpine climbing. Now, in my early thirties, I’m devoted to travelling in secluded places and climbing alpine routes rather than competing. I’m still always looking for new experiences and am constantly learning and sharing. My latest passion is paragliding, a sport that connects perfectly with my other passions skiing and climbing.
