Jennifer Chahal - Executive Director of Charitable Donations The Helping Coupon

I am a typography nerd and I can often be found
at the dog park with my Boston Terrier.

 

My favourite pastime is redecorating my house
and if you're willing, I'll gladly redecorate yours!

 

I've worked as a designer across Canada and the USA,
in various industries such as fashion, construction and with the military.

 

In 2011 after many requests from existing clients for me to design their websites
I returned post secondary education to expand my skill set.

 

I have a diploma in Digital Media and IT, specializing in Web Design,
from Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (Edmonton).

 

I am an Honours graduate of the Graphic Communications program (NAIT).

 

I also hold a Bachelor of Applied Arts Fashion from Ryerson
Polytechnic University (Toronto).
