Who We Are
Founder & CEO
Chantal is a builder of people and businesses. Her interest in the psychology behind human interaction brought her to Saint Mary’s University from Bermuda, where she focused on Psychology, Business, and Human Resources. Following university, she made Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada her home and began supporting leaders in the private and public sector as a Consultant. This work led to her role with North American technology company, Unique Solutions Design Ltd., where she led the development and execution of their human capital strategy for four years as the company tripled in size. After reconnecting with her own passion of helping others find careers that they love, she started EnPoint, where she focuses on helping thousands of people do just that through mentorship.
Chantal is a believer in experiential learning, a proponent for mentorship, and an active advocate for women. As a TedX and sought-after speaker, she often talks about the importance of living an authentic life and the impact of mentorship in advancing one's career. Chantal most recently joined Unity Charity, a national charity that is using hip hop art forms to help youth build resilience, as a Board Member and Governance and HR Committee Member. She co-chairs the Mentorship Committee for Women in Communications and Technology, Atlantic Chapter, is the past Chair for the Atlantic Regional Advisory Board for the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers, serves on the Halifax Chamber of Commerce WorkForce Taskforce, and sits on the Program Advisory Council for Techsploration. She is also a mentor with the Newcomer Entrepreneurship Hub, two time judge with Ryzhe Ventures out of Innovation Guelph, and active member of a number of women in tech, startup, and ‘future of work’ peer groups.
Client Success & Communications Manager
Julia is a homegrown Nova Scotian, with an eclectic background deeply focused on customer service. Her experience includes business owner, life coaching, public relations, communications, and several years as a hairdresser (which she still does on the side!). The soft skill development from time spent in client facing roles, created a unique and natural fit for the position she holds at EnPoint.
A combination of volunteer work with The Halifax Youth Project, Halifax Hospice, Look Good, Feel Better as well as a myriad of education that includes a 200 hour yoga teacher certification, helped Julia clarify her core values of activating community and prioritizing relationships. She is the mentorship liaison with WCTA’s Communications Committee, and volunteered with the SMU Women in Business Committee to deliver the 2021 event.
