Co-founder of Théâtre La Cigogne in 2012, she participated in the company's creations (Le loup: l'histoire d'un incompris, VIOLENCES, Voyage Identitaire and Le froid est un détail de l'hiver).

Among these puppeteering roles, she has also played human TV roles such as Terri (À la Valdrague, 2018) and Kim (Newbies, 2019). Between 2018 and 2019, she joined the team at Satellite Théâtre, where she continued her research into theatrical movement and the place theatre can hold in the community. During her time with this creation company, she participated (wearing several hats) in the productions Overlap (2019), Les limites du bruit possible (2019) and ''T'' (2019). In summer 2021, she took part as an actor-creator in the play Pépins (Satellite Théâtre).
