Elena Mermillod Anselme (FR-GB-RU) - TOUR LEADER

I was born in Ukraine, then moved to Russia where I completed my studies. I started learning French when I was 7, then English and then Italian. I graduated from university in Russia with a PhD but have always worked in France - where I also got married - as a sworn translator/interpreter. I have worked in several Savoie and Haute Savoie ski resorts and teamed with the Lake Annecy Tourist Office which awarded me their Tourist Guide certification in 2007.
Tourism plays a fundamental role in my everyday life. Life here holds no secrets for me and I will be more than delighted to share my “best picks” with you!
