Living in Nyon was founded in 2009. Its aim was to provide a source of information in English to the international community living in the Nyon and La Côte area and to help their integration into Swiss life.
The Editor – Mandy Bronsil
In the summer of 2020, Mandy Bronsil took over as the new editor of the site from Catherine Nelson-Pollard.
Mandy has been living in Vich since 2009 with her husband and two young children. She founded her own company B-inspired Partners in January of 2019 where she focuses on career development for companies and individuals.
She graduated from the Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne in 2006 and has a professional background in career development, team-building workshops and executive search. She is fluent in English, French, Dutch and Spanish.
“Living in Nyon is for the international community living in the Nyon and La Côte area. I’m thrilled to play my part and contribute by providing information and a bridge between the international and the local community.”
The Founder – Catherine Nelson-Pollard
Catherine Nelson-Pollard, the original founder and editor of Living in Nyon for over 11 years, created the site as she loved the town and area and wanted others to appreciate it too.
Catherine has now moved away from the Nyon area, but will still be writing for the site from time to time.
Catherine is also a British freelance writer and broadcaster. In 2011 she published a book called “Living along Lac Léman” – a collection of her columns from La Côte newspaper, along with other articles and photos.
