Professionnal career

As far as I can remember, the field of health has been part of my life. For 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 I started a master's degree in clinical sciences at the University of Sherbrooke. It was also during this period that I had my first real 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 the improvement of 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 try to include my family and humanist values in the functioning of my team and that is what makes our success. I support my students in their academic careers and do everything in my power to ensure that they develop a variety of skills in order to achieve their goals.
