Fabienne L'Abbé

Bilingual host, producer, director, and two-time Gémeaux Award–winning researcher, Fabienne L'Abbé currently hosts the television lifestyle program RubyTFO. She has also worked on documentaries for Travel & Escape, youth programming for Télétoon and reality TV for OLN. She began her career working as an occupational therapist with children with autism and developmental disorders. That experience taught her to develop her observational and analytical skills, to be adaptable and to break complicated tasks down into easy steps. These skills translated naturally into the world of television, where storytelling demands a similar approach. In her spare time, she indulges in her favourite addictions: running, yoga and spinning.
