Francine was born in St. Boniface, the French neighbourhood of Winnipeg, Manitoba and attended the University of Manitoba before moving to Ottawa to pursue her passion for haute couture at Richard Robinsons Haute Couture Academy.
In Winnipeg, Francine grew up in the very fast pace Film Industry where she developed many of her organizational and planning skills that she uses today. Once in Ottawa, she started working in customer service, sales and took on many leadership roles in the past 8 years. She managed a very specialized knit wear boutique where she learnt the art of excellence and personalized customer service. She also worked for Nordstrom, another customer service giant in different leadership roles.
The fast pace, multi moving parts and creation of an excellent customer experience was a natural progression to Event Service Management. During Francine’s down time she likes to express her creativity through cooking and stained glass. She also holds very dearly time spent with her friends and family whether it may be a bike ride with her younger brother, hiking with her twin sister or simply sharing a meal and some wine with her parents , friends and significant other.
