She grew up in Cameroon, Africa where she obtained a BS in accounting.
While working as an accountant at an international commercial bank CCEI Banque/“Afriland” Cameroon, an opportunity presented itself to travel abroad and continue her education in finances. She chose the United States even though French is her first language. Open to the challenge of learning English, she quickly immersed herself in American culture and 10 months later she landed a job at Washington Mutual Bank/Chase Bank, working as a loan funder in its servicing department in San Diego, California.
In 2008, she joined the accounting team at Fraser with no experience in the yachting industry.
In 2021, she earned her Master’s Degree in Accounting from Nova Southeastern University.
