She began her career as a trainee Commissaire Priseur (Auctioneer) at Drouot, the entity that houses the largest part of all auctions held in Paris. She then joined the British firm Tyler and Co International in Paris as a Loss Adjuster, specialising in losses on works of art and high end jewellery for Lloyd’s of London. At the request of Gurr Johns Ltd. she opened and managed their Paris office, developing a valuations, appraisals and loss adjusting practice. For Gurr Johns she worked on their acquisition of  Appap, the then largest valuation and appraisal practice in Paris. 

 In 2010 she opened a new practice, Polyphile International, together with a British associate and developed an activity centred around the appraisal of works of art. 

Finally, in 2017, she saw the opportunity to establish  a Family Office wholly dedicated to works of art and high end jewellery. Thus she founded SvO Fine Arts, now operating in full independence and completely dedicated to serving its client base.
