Meet Chantal

Bonjour, my name is Chantal Désilets and I am the founder of Girl Friday International, a personal service company created with the singular purpose of making your life easier and less stressful.

Over the years, I have served in various capacities as an executive assistant, project manager, conference services and event manager, catering manager, as well as a number of positions. Among the many skills I have developed are a keen sense of organization, an exceptional attention to detail, and a desire to help others.

As your Girl Friday, I can help make your life easier by running personal errands; take care of your cherished pet while you are away on business or holidays; de-clutter your existing living space; or help you organize your personal and professional life.

I provide seniors living on their own, or in a retirement community, with transportation to their favourite store, a visit to the doctor, or a drive in the country. The list of ways I can be of service in making your life easier and less stressful is endless. E-mail or call me at your convenience to see how I can help.
