For me, cycling is as much a means of transportation, a different way to travel and enjoy the beauty of nature, as it is time spent with friends, and a way to train and physically push my limits. I first became passionate about cycling during my first cycling trip in which I travelled across Viet Nam from the South (Ho Chi Minh City) to the North (Hanoi). I had never really biked seriously before that, and it was a hell of an adventure. Since then, I accumulated the miles (and the bikes…) and I can just never get enough. I now love to surpass myself in different personal challenges (many Ironman 70.3, Canadaman Xtreme long-distance triathlon, cycling from Montreal to Quebec, from Miami to Key West, climbing Whiteface, 150 km rides for the multiple sclerosis foundation, snow pentathlon, and the list goes on…). 

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.”

Triathlon is my newest passion since it forces me out of my comfort zone and allows me to meet passionate and inspiring new people. Being also passionate about photography, I really enjoy taking advantage of my bike rides to capture beautiful images. I love practising and trying new sports, which allows me to adapt my activities according to the seasons! I am also passionate about physics and life and health sciences and through my research, I try to put engineering at the service of medicine. Having studied and worked in engineering, I am aware of the importance of giving a place to women in predominantly male areas.

I am convinced I can contribute to the PEPPERMINT experience by communicating my passion for cycling hand-in-hand with a company that shares the same values as me. Plus, PEPPERMINT is a local brand, which makes me love it even more!
