"After graduating from UniLaSalle, I continued my studies directly with a specialization in the management and exploration of non-renewable resources (double Master's degree in Earth Sciences between Quebec and the University of Orleans). This training ended with a fixed-term contract in a mining company in Quebec, first as a mine geologist and then as an exploration geologist at the Casa Berardi gold mine in the Abitibi region of Quebec. I participated in the development of the mineral resources and reserves that led to the start of mining production. I also contributed to the discovery of a mineralized zone (gold). I then joined the exploration team of Agnico-Eagle Mines as a Project Geologist where my tasks were centered around project evaluation (for acquisition) and management of advanced projects in Quebec, Ontario and Nunavut.
Family life led me to Montreal where I completed my expertise with an MBA specialized in corporate finance, taken between the ESG (Ecole des Sciences de Gestion de Montréal) and Paris-Dauphine. This degree allowed me to join an investment fund specialized in the financing of exploration projects.
Today I am a financial analyst for SIDEX (Société d'Investissement dans la Diversification de l'EXploration Minière). Change of work environment, my daily activity is now mainly at the office. I analyze investment files and meet with many stakeholders in mining development in Quebec. "
