Who Are We?

Valerie Larochelle

Valerie believes that we can improve the daily life for people with Alzheimer's. Her grandmother being affected by the disease, Valerie is constantly looking for practical solutions to rethink the quality of time spent with her during her visits.

Our CEO and co-founder is fascinated by new technologies that allow people to stay home safely a little longer. In her role, she has the chance to meet creative suppliers every day, these suppliers are continuously thinking about a better way to age, with more dignity and more autonomy.

With Eugeria, a tool will finally exist to support families and provide them with innovative solutions.

Before co-founding Eugeria, Valérie worked in consultation and management. Specializing in operations, business strategy and procurement. Valérie has worked in the United States, China and Australia, where she lived for 4 years.

Marie-Anne Bazerghi

Marie-Anne studied finance and economics at HEC Montréal. She holds a Master in Finance from MIT Sloan School of Management and an MBA from the University of Oxford.

Marie-Anne worked for 7 years as a consultant and engagement management for the management consulting firm McKinsey & Company. She worked in the UK, France, Netherlands, Gabon, Jamaica, Canada and the USA. Her expertise sits at the intersection of strategy and operations, with a focus on large-scale transformations, new department creation and cost reduction programs.

In joining Eugeria, Marie-Anne hopes to transform the quality of life of aging Canadians.

Quoc Dinh Nguyen

Quoc is a geriatrician at the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM). He trained in Internal and Geriatric Medicine at the Université de Montréal and graduated from Harvard University with a Masters in Public Health. On the research side, Quoc is currently enrolled in a PhD program where he is looking to enhance care practices for older adults by studying the impact of frailty on this population.

As Eugeria’s medical and research expert, Quoc is convinced that Eugeria answers a critical need for older adults and their caregivers. Medicine does help us age better, but aging well hinges even more on the little things we do daily.

Between April and June, Dr. Nguyen worked full time as the president of the committee of experts that led the fight against COVID-19 in long term care facilities.

The Eugeria team is proud of the active role Dr. Nguyen plays in this fight for the health and safety of all Quebec seniors

Lyonciny (Ly) Li

Prior to joining Eugeria, Ly was a physiotherapist that practiced in a private rehabilitation clinic. She worked occasionally with older adults suffering from cognitive impairments. She not only experienced firsthand the functional impact of cognitive loss, but also the anxiety lived by caregivers hoping to help a loved one. She truly sees the value in Eugeria to address the accessibility to proper information, services, and products on Alzheimer and cognitive impairments.

Following her years of practice as a healthcare professional, she completed an MBA program at HEC Montréal that provided her with more tools to impact society positively. At Eugeria, she is currently utilizing both her management skills and her healthcare knowledge to ensure that caregivers, people with Alzheimer's or a cognitive impairment, and other stakeholders are reached and optimally benefit from Eugeria.

Helene Leclaire

After a career in IT, Helene has been active in the community setting over the last few years. During this experience, she had the chance to work with a diverse clientele that includes older adults and she noticed the need for the latter to maintain social contact to prevent isolation. She also saw the caregivers in her surrounding feeling powerless when facing the increasing needs of their loved ones. In addition, Helene had completed studies in gerontology. It was only natural for Helene to join the Eugeria team.

Jean-Yves Tremblay

Jean-Yves Tremblay recently retired from the Quebec network of health and social services. Jean-Yves was, until his retirement in 2016, director of multidisciplinary services and responsible for ethics and accreditation processes in the Centre de santé et de services sociaux (CSSS).

This department's main mandate was to provide consulting and support services to the clinical management teams by developing best practices, particularly for the care of people with a loss of autonomy related to aging and their families.

With the expertise and experience gained from 35 years of clinical practice and management, Jean-Yves is happily contributing to Eugeria as a mentor of the team.
