Originally from Poitiers, she has been living in the south of France for several years now. She is now head of communications and databases at the Béziers Méditerranée Tourist Office. Putting the spotlight on each and every one of the service providers who make up the richness and originality of the region is something she takes to heart. Judging by the articles she posts on her blog, her interests tend to lie in festivities, culture and, above all, good food! Her favourite place: the Plateau des Poètes. It's a soothing place to take a stroll, and ideal for lunch in the sun.
