My family and I moved to Chappelle Gardens in 2012 and love it more than words can describe.  The warm and friendly staff at the RA, the neighbours who are always looking out for each other, the beautiful walking paths, and the fabulous Residents Association building all have a part in making Chappelle a great place to call home. We’ve had 3 different houses in our journey in Chappelle and know that if we move again we definitely want to stay in the community. 

In my professional life I work as an Executive Assistant and have been an EA for over 12 years now.  I love taking on challenges, solving problems, and learning new things and the EA role allows for that and more.  My past roles have mainly been in the construction industry including a few years with a homebuilder/land developer so I have some understanding and experience in figuring out what issues are whose responsibility.  I’ve previously sat on 3 different condo board associations as well and bring with me knowledge of insurance complications and annual forecasting.  I have a ‘how can I help?’ mentality so never be afraid to reach out to chat if there’s something you’re wondering about the community.

In my spare time you’ll find me hanging with my family (my husband, my daughter, 3 cats & 1 puppy), reading a good book, baking some tasty treats, or piecing a new quilt together.

I have had the pleasure of living in Chappelle for over 5 years now.  I have watched as our community has grown, adapted and flourished in that time.  My wife and I decided to move to this community after seeing the potential of it, from the times we would spend at the RA, the walking paths or the gardens  people were already tending.  In our time in the community we have gotten to know people around the neighbourhood and forge life long friendships with them.  Settling in with fun nights at the RA, meting people at the markets, and coming up with some new ideas are some of the reasons I enjoy our community and want to continue to help it improve it.  I have had the pleasure of serving the board for a few years now, and wanted to help forge the direction that I wanted to see the neighbourhood go towards.  I am always looking for new ideas and perspectives for what we can and should be doing so please flag me down whenever you want to get your ideas out there.

My family moved to Chappelle in 2012 and we have watched this amazing community grow into what it is today. We love the small town feel the community offers with all the amenities of the city. If you have lived in Chappelle for a while you may have seen my husband Dwayne and I at one of the many events at the social house or walking our 2 crazy bulldogs, Carlton and Stella. Recently our daughter Madison and her boyfriend Cody moved to back to the Chappelle area as well. Over the years I have been involved in the community as a member of the CGRA Social Committee where we have organized events, fundraisers and ways to bring the community together. I have also been a sponsor for almost 4 years where I have been lucky to be able to give back to the community by supporting different events, volunteering or providing different activities such as bouncy castles, hot chocolate stands or face painting for everyone to enjoy. I have also been referred to as the resident REALTOR® because I have been very lucky to help several families buy and sell homes in the community. I look forward to working with the other members of the board to voice the opinions of the community.

My husband Allen and I have lived in Chappelle since 2013. We have enjoyed watching this community grow and evolve over the past 9 years. We've met some really great people that we now call friends at various RA events. Chappelle Gardens has showed us the true sense of the word "community". Throughout my life I've lived in many small towns and Chappelle really has that small town feel within the city. That's probably what I love most about this area. We like it here so much we decided to dig our roots in a little deeper and open a business here. In my spare time you can find me reading a book, walking or running our dog around paths in the community, attending social events at the RA, hiking, taking photos or volunteering. I'm excited to give back to the community with new creative event ideas. I look forward to working with the board to help bring residents ideas to life, so if you have thoughts about things you'd like to see in the community please come chat with me!

Chappelle is a dream community where we have our sweet home with a lake back-drop. Since, we have moved in this community in 2016, we love each day and enjoy every moment. The community center has become one of the major attractions of the Chappelle residents. My special thanks to Brookfield Residential for making such a good modern facility. In my professional life as Chief Executive Officer of a Biotechnological Organization, I have curved some time which I want to spend on community work that will give me extreme satisfactions. I am also involved with different multicultural associations of Alberta. I have organized several cultural events in Edmonton with the help of our volunteers. I have raised fund for natural disasters, organized food donations for Food Bank of Edmonton, cooked and served food at Hope Mission so on and so forth. Thank you all for giving me this opportunity to serve as a resident director of Chappelle Gardens Residents Association. I will be happy to know your expectation and that will be my starting point for achieving any goal.
