About Josephine: Born in Geneva, Josephine moved to Fribourg to spend almost all of her studies there. Graduated with a Bachelor in Primary Education from the HEP Fribourg, she taught for a few years before changing lanes for accounting. Freshly certified with a Federal Diploma in Specialist in Accounting and Financial Management, she left Switzerland to go on an adventure in Singapore. Arrived in January 2021 in “the little Switzerland of Asia”, she decided to put her skills to use in the SAS committee to stay connected to the Swiss community while being able to meet new people. Being currently improving her English and as life does not have the same flavor without risk, she hopes to quickly find a job in Singapore where she aspires to spend a few good years.

In 2006 Héloise moved to Switzerland, Zurich, the city where her husband comes from. During the following 12 years, she organised large events in Switzerland for associations and gave birth to her 4 children. In July 2019 the whole family moved to Singapore where Héloise enjoyed discovering Singapore, meeting new people, helping her children to have a good start in their new country, discovering new activities during the pandemic like learning guitar, sewing, wake boarding… As the desire to work grew, she decided to engage herself again professionally in associations and be part of the Swiss community helping them to meet and connect – making their expatriation a wonderful experience in Singapore.
