Meet Chantal, our featured Boss Mom this week.
Chantal is one of the founders of HealthCircle, a mobile healthcare company that provides integrated wellness solutions focusing on body and mind. What a perfect fit for people with busy schedules, limited mobility or who cannot travel outside their home.
The network of local health practitioners offer a range of “In Home” and “At Work” services, including; physiotherapy, psychotherapy, registered massage therapy, yoga, personal training, reflexology and naturopathic medicine.
Chantal has been in the health and wellness industry for 18 years, which gives her plenty of experience running and managing her own business. Chantal came to Ottawa shortly after having her first child and spent time as a stay at home mom raising her children. During this period, Chantal recognized a gap in the healthcare field; Canadians want improved access to their health providers and the convenience of engaging in their healthcare in their own time. Whether at work or in home; mobile health provides improved accessible solutions.
What are the benefits of being “mom-preneur”?
Flexibility - being able to make her own schedule and have the time to pick her kids up from school or join them on field trips. This daytime flexibility means you have to be committed to putting in extra time in the evenings or over the weekends if you want the business to grow.
The best advice Chantal can pass on to any mom thinking about starting a business, is to build a solid business plan, know the market, focus on your short and long term goals and of course, choose something you are passionate about.

Chantal is hosting an event for new and expecting parents at 9 am Sunday, March 4th at Fab Baby Gear on Wellington St.
Join new and expecting mothers in the community to focus on YOU – healthy is happy. We will be discussing strategies and best practices to take care of both body and mind. HealthCircle is excited to help facilitate the conversation about self-care, coping methods, and taking “some” of the worry out of being a new parent.
