Graduated in piano at the Conservatoire National de Région de Toulouse, she holds a CAPES in Music Education. For 20 years, she has taught in music classes in secondary schools in Marmande.

After 17 years as conductor of the Val de Garonne Choir (awarded at the vocal anthology of Tours in 1989), she was entrusted with the direction of the Maurice Ravel Vocal Ensemble within the Municipal Conservatory (classical repertoire: Requiem by Mozart and Duruflé, Lauda Sion Mendelssohn, Stabat Mater by Poulenc etc…).

Passionate about vocal art, she has also been the conductor of the Nuits Lyriques de Marmande choir since 1991, which participates in productions. Her high musical standards and the quality of her artistic work enable the Nuits Lyriques to benefit from a first-rate choral system, which is essential to her artistic project.
