Professional career

As far as I can remember, the health field has been part of my life, for a good reason, since I am the daughter of nurse parents. It was clear to me that I also wanted to contribute and be at the service of the population. After my bachelor's degree in nursing, I practiced nursing in various care units and started a master's degree in clinical sciences at the University of Sherbrooke. During this period, I also had my first actual contact with the world of research. I was a research coordinator and clinical nurse at the Research Chair in Chronic Disease Health Services and Policies in Primary Care. I was fortunate enough to have an exceptional mentor who passed on to me his passion for research and the importance of contributing to improving primary care. This is why I pursued a doctorate in nursing, followed by a post-doctorate. In 2015, I completed the TUTOR-PHC program. All of my training allowed me to develop my expertise in primary care, patient partnerships, interprofessional collaboration and knowledge transfer. Since 2019, I have been an assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine at the University of Sherbrooke.


During this academic and professional journey, I had the immense pleasure of giving birth to three beautiful daughters. My family is at the center of my priorities and is the foundation of everything I do. I include my family and humanist values in my team's functioning, which makes our success. I support my students in their academic careers and do everything I can to ensure that they develop various skills to achieve their goals.
