Glenda MacDonald

Interim Food Service Director
(902) 897-1952

Glenda was employed by Chartwells many years ago until she decided to go to culinary school to strengthen her skills. She graduated from NSCC Culinary Arts Program and then went on to complete her Red Seal.  We are very pleased that in August of 2011 she rejoined the team as a cook and has since been promoted many times and is now the interim Food Service Director working closely along side our Chef and the rest of the team.  Glenda loves a new challenge and enjoys 'fun with food' in creating new dishes.

In her spare time you can find her doing many outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking and almost all adventures lead to geocaching.
