What’s your favorite thing about your job?

My favorite thing about my job is empowering people, helping them understand there is always another option, and teaching them that being proactive about your fertility is a great idea. Infertility is a hard journey, and it’s one that we’re never quite prepared for. Shedding some light on it and making things easier through basic fertility education makes this the most rewarding job I’ve ever had.

What types of situations have you helped Carrot members navigate?

I wear several hats for Carrot. I’m an operations representative for France and Western Europe, and I help members navigate their journey mostly in cross-border cases. I also hold fertility chats with Carrot members.

What do you like to do for fun?

I like to relax by watching a nice movie or reading a good book, but my best moments are spent at the beach. I love water, especially the sea — which complicates things for me, because I live in the suburbs of Paris!

Fun facts

I am a journalist. My professional life took a huge turn a few years ago when, having been confronted with secondary infertility myself, I started focusing on fertility, educating myself and, later on, educating others.
