Her professional career is flourishing and varied: President and CEO, Care Coordinator, Director of Nursing, etc. Her clinical background is very laudatory and has mainly focused on the following medical areas: emergencies, long-term care, palliative care, mental health and maternity.

Her strong experience in the field of community health and her personal commitment to promote youth and defend the causes of women on the international scene have earned her the choice of the current President of Congo to serve as Advisor on Gender to the current President of DRC Honb’le Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo.
