Chantal comes from an extensive multicultural background. Born in the United States and raised in different countries in Europe has allowed her to travel around the world starting from a young age, and to become fluent in four languages.
Chantal has a degree in Hospitality Management and has worked in the hospitality industry for 10 years before she realized that her passion for traveling and discovering different cultures was a vital part of her life she was missing. She decided to take a chance and make a career out of her love for travel and exploring different cultures, and she is thrilled to now be a part of the Huffman Travel team!
Chantal has learned to plan her travels in detail while growing up by observing her family plan every trip they took together, which she now applies when traveling by herself or with her husband. Chantal is looking forward to expanding her cultural knowledge through worldwide travel opportunities in order to better advise her clients so as to create unique and memorable experiences for them.
In her spare time, Chantal enjoys collecting postcards, travel photography, reading, writing, watching documentaries, listening to music, and studying different languages.
