For Chantelle, a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications led to roles doing Graphic Design and Marketing with various firms before taking a break from the workforce to focus on her young children. She's a fun-seeking mom of two who equally enjoys a new and exciting adventure with the family or quiet downtime at home. In the summer months, she enjoys extended camping trips with lots of hiking and exploring, while the cooler months give way to experiencing and appreciating some of the great attractions in Edmonton. At home, you can find Chantelle getting creative with a DIY craft project, trying out a new recipe, or relaxing with her two very spoiled dogs.
