Chantiel was born and raised on a farm in the Peace River Region, just north of Fort St. John. She participated in district level sports in school. After training for a short while in Western Fencing, Chantiel made a switch and now regularly trains traditional and sport karate, and helps run several karate clubs in the Peace River Region. She enjoys introducing people of all ages to new physical challenges, and helping them realize that they are capable of doing amazing things.
Chantiel now lives in Chetwynd, and loves the community’s outdoor recreational possibilities. You can often see her out on the hiking trails or at the local rock climbing crag.
