She also acquired useful knowledge of commercial furniture design working for the company '' Hugo/Kider '' in Paris.
Established in Montreal since 1998 initially as a free lance designer, she then worked for the company optima design, implementing projects for major,
renowned international brands (in Canada, the United States and Mexico) such as Harley Davidson, BRP (Bombardiers Produits récréatifs), la Grande Roue de Montréal,
