Chantal has a wide variety of financial, administrative and human resources knowledge that she shared in both the public and private sector. She arrived at the University of Ottawa in 2008 where she sought to achieve a better understanding of the academic biosphere and share her experience with others. At the University, she has worked in Financial Resources, the Faculty of Medicine, the President and Vice-Presidents Office and has now joined the Institute of the Environment. Wanting to pursue a passion of hers, Chantal enrolled in the Interior Decorator’s program on part-time bases at Algonquin College but soon realized how passionate she was and completed her certificate. She is a devoted mother, takes great joy in family life and she adores decorating, gardening, boating and travelling down south.
