Her mother teacher and her father at Air France gave her the taste of books and travel with the discovery of other cultures. After a Bachelor of Science and Life of the Earth in 1982, graduated at age 17, she considered a degree in Agricultural Engineering before choosing to become a dietitian. The particular power supplies are his favorite observations. She likes the diversity of food and decides to take courses in master of food sociology at the University Jean Jaurès in Toulouse in September 2003. In constant transformation with the appetite to learn, she continues her doctorate of anthropology with Annie Hubert as thesis director, on the understanding of the food act of men. Our food is organic but also emotional and social. After her thesis defense, she will continue to develop research programs to promote a sustainable diet for students. She will develop teaching programs at the hotel school in Avignon where she will open a course on sustainable development in bachelor of the culinary arts and tableware trades.
