About Me

I grew up in the southern part of France, in a small town, where I spent my childhood and youth with my family. I was born with a visual impairment. During the first five months of my life, I was completely blind. After, it slowly started to increase until the age of five years old. At that time, my sight stopped improving and became stable. I did my education in the regular school system.

After graduating from high school and obtaining an associate degree in computer science, I decided to move to Canada, just like my grandparents had done in the early fifties. I wanted to prove to myself that I could live on my own and have a regular job despite being visually impaired, and I did. After obtaining another associate degree in communication multimedia, I worked as a web developer for approximately a decade.

I left my job in this field to change career paths. Although I liked creating websites, I felt incomplete. Working alone behind the computer every day felt too individualistic, and I did not feel like this was the best use of my experiences.

As a visually impaired person myself, overcoming my visual limitations has always been a personal challenge and an underlying motivation in my life. I decided that this is what I wanted to contribute the second half of my life to. I wanted to work closely with blind and visually impaired individuals to encourage them, instill confidence in them and have them thrive.

After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in France and a Bachelor of Education in Canada, I entered Salus University to study in the field of blindness and low vision. During my time at Salus University, I have completed a Master’s of Science in Vision Rehabilitation Therapy and another Master’s of Education in Teaching Students with Visual Impairments.
