I am unbelievably thankful to be joining the Chappelle Gardens team. I have been a resident in Chappelle Gardens for the past 5 years, and have previously served our community. My heart is for building community and connecting people together. When I am not working, I enjoy baking, reading, crocheting, and painting along with walking my two dogs along the community walking trails. I am excited to get to know each of you a little more, and to serve this beautiful community we call home.

Hiiiiii! My name is Nikita and I’ve been working at the social house for a little over a year now, and I also do respite work around the community! I am a university student specializing in Psychology and Social Work. I absolutely love coming up with new fun ideas and crafts for all the little ones that stop by as well as planning our trivia nights! I am a lover of anime, and playing video games (especially the Legend of Zelda). I have 2 Guinea pigs names Spook and Mimi that I love so much! Come in the office to say hi and chat with me about all of your favourite things, I love connecting with all of our lovely community members!
Grant has a passion for making the community a better place to be a part of. Part of how he accomplishes this is by making sure our facilities and spaces are safe and well maintained. He also loves music - all types and varieties. Grant enjoys the outdoors, and loves a good campfire.
Jose Benitez Jasso

Jose is in charge of all the fun events and programs community members take part in here at the RA. He is the one that plans the events, gets supplies, and someone who is always there to joke around with the kids. He wishes he could have tacos for lunch everyday and wear his sombrero to work. He is most content when playing the guitar and connecting with community members. He is always looking forward to connecting with the community on the daily.

Hi, my name is Bansari. I am a university student who loves waffles, strawberries, and ducks. I am exceptionally bad at soccer and cannot seem to improve. While I enjoy all the activities available at the RA, my favourite is our ping-pong table, so if you ever need a partner, just let me know ;) p.s if you’re struggling with saying my name, try saying it as bun-surrey :)

Hi!! My name is Anne and I have lived in the community for a total of 3 years now. I moved out of the community last 2020 but found myself coming back and permanently settling here as a resident. During my free time I enjoy socializing. Going out for coffee or some snacks with family and friends. I enjoy going on leisure walks every chance I get to enjoy nature and get some fresh air. I have also started my fascination towards house plants which helps me cope up with stress.
Hi, my name is Noah. I’m a first year university student in Sciences. I've been working at the RA for about two and a half years and love crushing Bansari in ping pong but love my dog more.
