I was born and raised in Switzerland. After University, I was accepted into the Graduate programme at Swiss Bank Corporation and completed an internship with the HR department. I then moved to Egypt to work in diving and pursue my interest for teaching. After several years, I returned to Switzerland to become a primary teacher for the State of Geneva for 6 years. In 2008, I became a Head of School in order to be more involved in the decision making process and general management. I had three schools under my supervision and implemented a special pilot programme on inclusion, which is now present in many schools in Geneva. In 2015, I followed my husband to Dubai to work at SISD as a Grade 5 teacher. I work with passion and humanity to ensure every member of the SISD community finds their right place. I like fine dining, swimming, going to the movies. I am a FINA B judge for synchronized Swimming. I also enjoy travelling with my son and my daughter.
