Chrystelle grew up in the country in a small town outside Ottawa, Ontario, where she spent most of her childhood outdoors, exploring nature. She was fascinated by whales from a young age, but it seemed like a distant dream, living so far from the ocean. As she grew up, her love for animals and nature led her to a veterinary technician diploma, and later, a bachelor’s degree in science with a major in biology. Chrystelle visited Victoria in 2020, went on a whale watching tour with Eagle Wing, and fell in love with it all. She moved here recently and applied for her dream job. She loves to travel, hike with her dogs and eat good food. She’s always striving to achieve a more sustainable lifestyle and is a proud vegetarian. She loves sharing her knowledge with people and raising awareness for wildlife and the conservation of the environment!
