A graduate of Cégep Lionel-Groulx’s theatre program, specializing in production, set design and costumes, Ève started her career in 2008 at the Suzanne Harel costume shop, working on the Dieu Merci! show for several years (2008–2010). Later, she assisted the designer on a number of projects, including the stage adaptation of Dieu Merci! le spectacle (2012–2015) and Star Académie (2012).

Working on variety shows and live broadcasts for a number of years, Ève gained experience in stage productions as a costumer and dresser. She has toured Quebec and beyond with musical productions, including Les Filles de Caleb (2011) and Cabaret (2013).

She has also been an assistant dresser on a number of television shows and film projects, including 30 vies (2011–2013) and Mémoires vives (2015–2016).

What she loves most about the costumer profession is being involved in every step of the process, from design to finalization. Also an accomplished painter, she is interested in all types of art, from dance to photography.

Marie worked in the international development sector for nine years before switching to the cultural sector. Driven by a keen interest in the human side of management, she has worked in NPOs for the last 13 years.

After receiving a Bachelor of International Studies from Université de Montréal in 2003, Marie did an international cooperation internship in Peru, which strengthened her resolve to contribute to a more equitable world without poverty. She began a career in public education at Oxfam-Québec and began working toward a Master of Administration at the École nationale d’administration publique (ÉNAP) in 2010, receiving her degree in 2012.

Marie joined the École nationale de l’humour team in the spring of 2012 as Director of Operations and Financing, where she discovered the wealth offered by, and the need for, artistic creation. She contributed to the comedy school’s structuring and financing efforts, forming a philanthropy committee made up of young businesspeople from Montréal. Her role as general manager of Le Grand Costumier provides a wonderful opportunity to combine her passion for social commitment and culture.
