Meet the team

— I spent many years in marketing and sales management, working in Montreal and Hong Kong. After a few health scares and a reminder that life is short, I made the bold move to leave an established pharmaceutical career to pursue a passion for creating experiences that make people happy. Now my mission is to provide a time and place for people to reset & re-energize.

My three mantras are to learn something new every year, believe that if you can dream it, you can achieve it, and eat loads of high-quality dark chocolate. Curiosity for life has brought me to over 30 countries where I seek the adventures of off-beaten tracks combined with pleasures of great food and wine. Some of my favourite vacations have been Fernando de Noronha in Brazil by dune buggy, epic road trip from Edinburgh to Inverness in Scotland, everything Gaudi in Barcelona and cycling across Naoshima in Japan.

Susan Ross

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNER

I’m a consultant in instructional design and adult learning whose primary focus is to create engaging and impactful learning experiences.  My career spans 25 years as a Learning and Development Specialist, leading workplace training strategy and performance solutions for the private sector in diverse industries. 

I’m an amateur photographer (somewhere between confused and promising) and a travel nut, always ready for the next great adventure, at home or abroad!

Caroline Simon

ART DIRECTOR AND INSTRUCTOR, INTERIOR DESIGN

I’m an interior designer and mother of two, who’s always had a keen interest in the art of design and décor.

After many years in corporate design and two years directing the decor section of KiDS Magazine, now my passion is to help people identify their design style and bring their dream homes to life step-by-step!

I approach every project with passion, authenticity and warmth in order to use the power of design and colour to create positive change.

Both curious and open-minded, I draw inspiration from everyday life, the people around me, from travelling and emerging international trends. I have great respect for the ideas of others and always strive to create a stimulating and respectful environment.

I look forward to meeting you!

Marie-Chantal Milette

INSTRUCTOR, COLOUR IN INTERIOR DESIGN

Growing up, I wanted to name the colours in paint stores.  Today I’m living my dream as one of few colour experts in the world.

I studied at the world class graphic design and advertising school, The Creative Circus, and had the opportunity to train in advanced colour psychology with Leatrice Eiseman, Director of the Pantone® Color Institute and world leader in colour psychology and trend prediction. In 2013, I founded Kryptonie the Colour Agency where my mission  is to help people use colour to strengthen their brands or to colour their lives. 

I’m passionate about teaching and spreading the power of colour, whether for  branding,  marketing campaigns, your designs or your home! 

I look forward to meeting you!

Mélanie Crête

INSTRUCTOR, PHOTOGRAPHY

Everyone has a story to tell. After many years in the corporate world, I made the decision to pursue my passion and dedicate myself full-time to photography. I created Blanches Bulles and now my mission is to help people tell their stories through photos.

I tailor each session to my clients’ needs so that they feel comfortable and confident. I love capturing the best in people through authentic photos, whether they are professional, wedding, family or boudoir. 

Now I also share my love of photography through teaching.  I look forward to meeting you!
