Chantal is a strategist, communications professional, and project leader with 15 years and more than 5,000 project management hours working in the social impact space. Starting her career in the corporate world at PwC Canada, CIBC Wood Gundy, and Travel Underwriters, Chantal has since supported mission-driven leaders and organizations in Canada, the USA, and Nepal, helping them build capacity through effective strategies and communications, and robust project management.
