My experience and deep interests:
THNK connection: THNKer , AMS Class 12

I am a seeker. A seeker of new learnings, of knowledge, of new experiences around the world.

I was born in Spain, raised in a French school and worked all my career for an American company across several countries in the EMEA region. I enjoy cultural diversity and seeking our common nature.

My love for research got me into genetics first and drug development later. Over the past 18 years, I have been privileged to work in the development of several of the most important lifesaving drugs and it still is an amazing experience.

I have always developed all my projects and methods within the Corporate world of my company so curiosity, again, drove me to THNK. I am seeking to develop something different thanks to THNK Creative Leadership Program, challenge my boundaries and limitations and create something new that helps me learn and develop differently as well as helping others with my Endeavor.

I have 2 amazing kids that help me stay connected with the future. My husband is my best partner in life and the four of us enjoy traveling the world together when we can.

Seeking balance between family and work, I discovered yoga and meditation, so internal search and awareness play a central role in my life. My biggest learning so far has been accepting and enjoying change in private and professional life and now is one of my personal drivers. We live in a fast-changing world but we were not raised or prepared to enjoy it.

I hope through THNK I can keep the search and we can create something connecting all these dots.
