20 years of Alpine rescue
10 years of helicopter rescue, which make me very sensitive to prevention and training in the most complex areas.
6 years at the army as a training officer in the mountains and beyond

I have been working on rivers and in the mountains since I was 16, first as an assistant instructor, then as a teacher and guide.
My cultural know-how leads me to be eclectic and able to range from one discipline to another without problems, I have always practiced different sports even at a high competitive level, I love teaching, transmitting and sharing passions and experiences.

Practiced sports: all those typical sports of the Alpine Guide disciplines like climbing, ice climbing, high altitude expeditions, off-piste skiing, ski mountaineering, canyoning, river canoeing, sailing, paragliding, telemark, triathlon and all that concerns the bicycle, in short … I like to explore and test myself!

My professional sports life is combined with a very intense professional insurance life that ranges from managing complex risks related to the Outdoor world, up to normal everyday coverage, of course, managing very carefully the professional commitments in the two areas, and relying on valid collaborators.

I work in both my professions with great passion, being able to cut out both spaces according to the moments, this system in my opinion keeps the enthusiasm high and the desire to do well and always improve.

You can reach me by phone but if I don’t answer at the first time it’s not because I don’t feel like it, it’s just that I’m always very busy.

At the disposal of all those who want to access our world, I will always try to encourage you, giving you all the necessary information.

Safety Kayaker, Mountain bike guide, BLSD operator

I’ve always been a very sporty girl, always looking for the limit, for something new to experience.

Then one day, I decided to participate in a tour of Ski Mountaineering, Freeride and Telemark on Etna with Xadventure … I met our mountain guide Marco Heltai … and everybody understood how this story went further.
So in addition to my historical passions of cycling and skiing, I added canoeing, climbing, canyoning, high-altitude trekking, paragliding …

After 20 years of working in the world of foreign trade in tourism, first in a mountain destination, then at Lake Garda, I thought to use my experience combining it with the world that best suits me, an active holiday in the outdoor world.

My goals are:
– make it suitable to everyone, through a clear and simple communication, the possibility of accessing this fantastic world of Adventure, step by step, without fear, being available to respond to any doubts or concerns, without taking anything for granted.

– promote our fantastic Baldo-Garda area in a new way, communicating to our guests, that in addition to beaches and amusement parks, terrestrial paradises are born, untouched by mass tourism, paths rich in history, visible only by practicing our activities that can turn a holiday into a real experience to remember.

In 2018 I obtained the certifications of BLSD and First Aid, Safety Kayak, Mountain Bike Guide 1st level, aligning with the philosophy of Xadventure, to make available to guests competence and professionalism.

I love children and in general all the people who like to get involved, challenging their fears. Therefore, as an assistant, along with the Mountain guides, I follow the summer and winter camps for children and outdoor training courses for companies, I encourage the weakest and I admire the most daring … I live real transformations, which fill me with joy.

Dreams in the drawer: travel the world by bicycle, climb the highest peaks in the world, descend the snowiest slopes of the world, move from one part of the world to the other by canoe … but also continue to live like this I wouldn’t mind.
