Professional highlight of 2016: Selected as one of the Young Leaders 2016 of the French-American Foundation.

I am very honored to represent the BIG enterprise in this year’s French class. However, throughout the process, I realized that what stuck with people were my dog mushing expeditions, desert horse treks, and other outdoors experiences. I am ‘the girl who runs marathons in Greenland and does extreme stuff’. Fine by me, that’s also who I am!

We met our American counterparts during a seminar in Lille/Brussels this October and will have another seminar next year in San Francisco/Silicon Valley. I am very grateful to have met outstanding individuals thanks to this.

The Young Leaders of the French-American Foundation is a program started in 1981 that selects every year 20 leaders from the US and France, aged 30 to 40, many of whom have become prominent figures in business, entrepreneurship, science, military, arts, media, and government, including the current French president.
