The Lush Entertainment initiative was developed by Chantelle Lush who has a passion for enriching people’s lives by creating deep and life long lasting relationships between one another.
For years she has envisioned assembling a team of like minded people that would love to work in unison to make this dream come true. Only in the recent years has Chantelle had the opportunity to meet this incredible group and cultivate the friendships that have lead to the inception of Lush Entertainment.
Founder & CEO
Chantelle Lush grew up in Fort McMurray, Alberta. In a small town with limited opportunity, her love for sports ultimately moved her to Calgary with the opportunity to play club and college volleyball.
With a natural sense of leadership and helping people work together towards mutual goals she found a great joy in coordinating people into all kinds of exciting and entertaining events.
Bring people together and cultivating new relationships in our diverse communities is when she is at her best happiest. By going back to the core of our humanity she thrives in living life to the fullest, loving everyone for who they are and nurturing a lush for life attitude!
