With an international commercial experience of more than 10 years in different business sectors, I wanted to specialize in Luxury Management from MBA ESG. I have excellent memories, both on personal and educational fronts. The learning process is interactive, creative, playful, and the spectrum of subjects taught is broad and specialized at the same time. Within a month after the defence of my dissertation, I was hired as a "Chef" De Marché International "at L'Occitane, to develop and run a network of distributors and subsidiaries, and to increase the turnover both qualitatively and quantitatively. Today, I am Head of the Company. I recruit and train partners in collaborative entrepreneurship with Nuskin, specialized in beauty, well-being, and anti-aging products, with presence in 54 countries.
