In her words,
“My name is Chantal Winslow and I live in Crossfield, AB with my husband of 5 years and our fur babies: The Pasta Cats (Spaghetti, Fettucine and Penne) and our 10 month old puppy, Meatball.
I grew up in London, ON and originally went to school to be a legal assistant. I worked in personal injury law for 5 years. After I moved to Alberta, I found myself seeking something completely different to put my time and energy into. That is when I stumbled upon St. David’s United Church.
I fell in love at my interview and the congregation, staff and community have become family to me over the last 6 years. Working at St. David’s has allowed me to grow and learn so much. I am sad to be leaving my St. David’s family but I am thrilled to be starting this journey with Shannon.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my family and friends. My passions are event planning, organization and facilitating connections within my community. I have founded and run a group in my small town based on forming friendships and connections. I also love to be creative. I am usually dabbling in a few different arts and crafts. Currently I have really been enjoying acrylic painting and ceramics.”
