It was probably my nomad spirit that led me to begin this journey, learning to let go and focus on building a different life. Just as I would travel the world to discover new places and be inspired, the same journey began within, wanting to know myself and understand if I was living a life I truly desired. From corporate life to a soul-searching sabbatical, I began my own entrepreneurial journey — a life I never expected for myself and yet exactly where I would find my why, designing a business around my talents, passions and skills.
It was from this personal experience that I envisioned and founded Nomad Atelier, to help others dream bigger and design a soulful business aligned to who they really are.

I could hear my soul whisper to me to let go, but I didn’t want to listen.
Despite it all, no matter how many times I was promoted or how hard I worked, I could sense that something was lacking.
I spent 20 years building what should’ve been my “dream life,” and yet, something was missing. At the time, I was traveling the world and leading digital initiatives for brands I’d always admired. I was living the dream of the little girl who was raised by a divorced mom, and who sought out a successful career and economic security.
My travels through morocco, the silence of the desert – awakened my nomad spirit, yearning for something more. For the first time in my life, I asked myself the most important question: What was my real purpose, and who did I really want to be?
I had no idea that I would need to lose my job to discover who I really was, that I would take a sabbatical year exploring remote places, preparing me for my unknown path ahead, confronting my biggest fears, those of losing my economic security and redesigning a different life.
Finding that clarity and guidance in those moments of transition was essential in my path to becoming an entrepreneur, something I had never imagined for myself. Inspired from my own journey, I found my why –
I listened to the voice within me, the one who told me to believe in myself, and to build a life aligned to my “why,” while connecting my different worlds around my passions, natural talents, skills and experiences. I started learning to see beyond my limiting beliefs and tapping into my unique gift.
Looking forward to sharing part of this journey with many more of you , whether it’s connecting inside one of my programs, retreats or working one-on-one, where I hope to guide you to design a business with soul and dare to play bigger.
For all you courageous dreamers, self-believers, unapologetically determined to live your dreams.
This is my journey – to be a soul whisperer, to help you find your zone of genius, be true to yourself and build a fulfilling business with your unique voice, the one that whispers from within.
