After years traveling round the world, sleeping on tour busses, hotel rooms and behind Sound Desks, Manuela decided to swop her headsets and ear plugs for a Mac Lap Top and moved into the office environment, working as Crew Coordinator and Personal Placement Manager for a Swiss Private Aviation Company, then Yacht Charter and Bulk Shipping Office Manager. Missing live events she moved back into the entertainment business to take on the role of Orchestral and Concert Production Managment in the South of France. She founded ChezChoupi 2021 after the Covid pandemic swept through the entertainment industry forcing a lot of people out of work. She is dedicated to her career and to re building live events to bring back the spark and thrill of a live event. Her dedicated assistant, Charlie, an 11 year old Main Coon cat, at her side.
