Jessica Ritzi

Can you say a few words about yourself?

I am from Aix en Provence, which is located in the south East of France (near Marseille), where the cicadas sing all summer long. And I have been living in Switzerland for 14 years.
Why did I move to Switzerland? For its chocolate of course!
After obtaining a diploma in administrative management, I surfed the wave, and I had the opportunity to discover different companies and sectors of activities. Working in the administrative field can open up a wide range of possibilities.

The wave took me to EPFL, where I started working in October 2011. I really appreciate to work in this academic and multicultural environment.
As EPFL is expanding, one of the laboratories I work for at the ENAC faculty will move to Sion. Being therefore available for new challenges, I had the great opportunity to join the LAPI laboratory in November 2021, to assist the team for the administrative part, and to support the growing development of the laboratory.

What do you enjoy to do during your free time?

I love to go hiking, and discover the fascinating world of nature around us. And spending time with my family and friends, with whom I like to share cakes that I like to make. 

A free thought for the end?

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars”. Oscar Wilde.
