In 2013, Chantal joined the Youth Program Team as Team Leader, travelling to over 30 regional and remote communities as part of the Rekindling program. She has creatively collaborated and choreographed sections of the New South Wales School Spectacular and Creative Generations.

Her inspiration comes from her family, especially her two daughters. Chantal hopes to instil a great sense of pride and understanding in her children, as they grow up knowing they are descendant of a vibrant, culturally rich and strong people.
