About me

I studied literature, marketing and management at Université Laval and TELUQ. After working in the cultural sector for around ten years, I was Executive Director of the Association des archivistes du Québec (AAQ) for five years. I was a member of the Canadian Archives Steering Committee and represented the AAQ on the International Council on Archives and the Association internationale des archives francophones. I am also involved on the board of Savoir Citoyen, the organisation that runs Le Chronoscope, a collaborative platform for managing intangible heritage. I am the first paid executive director of Wikimedia Canada.

My work

My main interests lie in organisational communication and collaborative work. I hope to encourage Canadian communities to contribute to Wikimedia by promoting exchange, dialogue and collaboration.
