Long-time Bromont resident, Sylvie Adam founded her first business during her studies in graphic design. She worked later on at the department of graphic design and editing at the University of Quebec at Montreal. Her experience and professionalism was rapidly noted, and she was offered to teach courses at the department of graphic design at the CEGEP du Vieux Montréal.

Between 1995 and 2006, she became the vice-president of a family business in the field of agricultural machinery. She diversified her experience in manufacturing production, export and marketing. The sale of the business took her to new business opportunities and she created biological garlic farm. She also became active in the creation of an association of garlic producers in Quebec.

As her children grew and became more independent, she became more involved in the Bromont community and she shared her time volunteering and offering her expertise with different organizations in the region. Because of her experience and her knowledge of various milieu, she decided to run for town counsellor in the town of Bromont.
