Hi, I am Amandine, 33 years old. I am married to an American, we have one daughter who is 8 months and one dog who is 2 years and half. I am originally from Nancy and I have been living in the USA for 8 years.

I used to ride horses when I was in France and used to do show jumping. I started when I was 6 and owned 2 horses.

I miss it very much and I had to stop riding living in the US. I love food, mostly cooking and be outside as much as I can.

What does working at Opinel mean to you, or to your family and friends?

Living in the US, this was the best opportunity for me. I could keep my French side and share this “savoir faire”, what a great combo! I grew up with Opinel, very well known and I am so proud of working in this subsidiary. I am also very happy to learn more about the business here in the US and grow in new positions with Opinel USA. My family are very happy and my friends are jealous of my beautiful kitchen knives !!!
