Morgane is originally from France, and has most recently worked in Bangkok at the Rasayana Retreat as a Health and Wellness Director, and as a Nutritionist at Dressed Thailand.

At Dressed Thailand, she worked with the Head Chef to develop a new menu, invented new recipes and created different options for guests who were particularly health-conscious.
As a holistic health professional, Morgane works to translate current scientific evidence into practical lifestyle advice, to educate and motivate people of all ages to reach their health and fitness goals. Back in Paris, she worked as a clinician Dietician at St Joseph Hospital, a private not-for-profit organisation providing medical attention and services to patients around the world. She conducted nutritional assessments, appropriate follow-ups in accordance with patients’ treatment goals, and referred patients for outpatient counselling and community health services when appropriate.
