Chantel is a first-generation graduate having obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business and Enterprise from Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland.

She is also the co-founder of The Leading Ladies Project, which is an organization prioritizing the education of underprivileged girls in Abaco, Bahamas.

O’Brian Consulting: a pageant, etiquette, and runway coaching and consultation agency, which also offers services in marketing and branding. Additionally, Chantel is a motivational speaker, marketer, model, and a woman of faith who considers charity and mentorship to be at the core of her identity.
