From France, to New York and now Miami, how has your wellness routine evolved (and improved) over the years?

My routine has always been minimalist. I’ve used the Avène brand for the past 20 years and have since discovered new favorites along the way. I discovered Intelligent Nutrients (70% certified organic) when I lived in Minnesota. Now that I live in Miami, I tend to use lighter skincare products and Ireapply SPF during the day. I have also started incorporating essential oils like Yarrow|Pom to my serums.

So much has changed since the last year. How did you pivot? What long-term lessons will you take away?

I am grateful for everything, but especially grateful that COVID-19 has brought me to Miami. Also, I have learned to keep life simple and focus on what resonates with me. I trust my intuition.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?

I own less than 10 pairs of shoes. A mix of French and Italian designers. Minimalist.

How do you stay inspired?

I stay close to nature and give myself time to rest and reflect on where I can best add value. I practice Quantum Flow (Juan Pablo Barahona) and Kundalini Yoga (Jai Dev/Life Force Academy). To recharge, I listen to Matt Kahn and Rob Wergin. I educate myself by listening to docuseries, IGTVs, and interviews like “The Truth About Cancer,” Joe Dispenza, and Janet Namaste, to name a few. Finally, my children’s energy also keeps me inspired.
