Most recently, Angélique held the position of Vice-President, Newcomer and Community Connections at the YMCA of Greater Saint John. Prior to holding this position, she was Director, Partner Engagement and Communications at Economic Development Greater Saint John. 

Through her various careers, Angélique has shown to be a strong relationship builder and has a proven track record in strategic planning oversight and execution and success in grant writing and fundraising. In addition, Angélique has had experience leading and managing progressively larger teams. She is also fluently bilingual.

Angélique will begin her role on July 23, 2019.
