"When we understand the privilege of what it means to be an athlete, we are in touch with, and rejoice in, our physical, mental, and emotional strengths and our endless possibilities."

Gloria Averbuch


A woman of many of talents with a calm, focused, but also, it seems, endless energy! And wisdom way beyond her years... Chantale has worked with my teenage son on performance for almost a year. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, always extremely positive and open to altering her approach as she gets to know him better. We couldn't ask for a more dedicated and hard working professional to be working with him. I recently discussed a completely different project with Chantale and was greeted with fantastic enthusiasm! Thank you, Chantale! In my opinion, one of your greatest gifts: I sense that you will be a student of life forever...
