I am originally from Evian, France. My first sport was alpine skiing. I also played table tennis and soccer before transitioning to endurance sports. I raced my first triathlon in 2012 and I have been racing professionally since 2017. My best performances were a 3rd place finish at Ironman Wisconsin in 2019 and a 4th place finish at Ironman Lake Placid in 2021, which qualified me for Kona 2021 (race moved to St George in May 2022). Prior to racing professionally I worked as a financial analyst and consultant in New York City from 2010 to 2017, which gives me a unique perspective on my athletes' coaching. I understand how training can add stress to an athlete's life when they try to balance work and personal commitments. I ask my athletes to be transparent about their availabilities. Their training is fluid and can be easily adapted. Additionally as I don't believe in coaches asking to "trust the process," I ask my athletes to understand their training instead. Trust naturally follows when athletes understand what they are working towards.
