Natalie Charette will be joining the Township of North Glengarry as its new Economic Development and Communications Officer effective April 19, taking over from Tara Kirkpatrick who is now the Manager of Economic Development at the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. 

Ms. Charette graduated from Char-Lan District High School in Williamstown and went on to complete a BA with a Major in Communications from the University of Ottawa. Shortly after graduating she joined Carnival Cruise Lines where she was able to combine her love of travel, warm weather and sparkling beaches, with a fast paced work environment and meeting new people. 

On her return to dry land, Ms. Charette worked as a Program Coordinator for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, recruiting volunteers, organizing Jump Rope for Heart Days in schools, and building relationships with local businesses in order to support community fundraisers. 

Afterwards, she held positions with the Township of South Glengarry as Communications Officer for Administrative Services, as well as Program Facilitator and Program Coordinator for the Recreation Department.
