is our fearless leader as owner of Chocolate’s by Bernard Callebaut Red Deer and is the original CocoLady. She has dabbled in wine and chocolate for many years now with past career credits including wine buyer and manager of three Chocolates by Bernard Callebaut locations in Edmonton. After purchasing the Red Deer store in 2011 she quickly became an integral party of the community with her involvement in Rotary, Red Deer Chamber of Commerce, Social Media Breakfast, and so many other events and organizations. Though she is busy pursuing many different wine and chocolate adventures throughout western Canada she’ll always be a fixture in the Red Deer community. Favourite Chocolate - Peanut Butter and Jelly.
was hired in 2011 and has since come to know the inner workings of BJ’s brain so thoroughly that she has stepped into the role of General Manager, taking over whenever BJ steps away. Always a lover of food, Chocolates by Bernard Callebaut was a natural fit for her and she has loved gaining more knowledge and experience in the chocolate and wine industries. She takes advantage of every opportunity to taste a new wine paired with a perfect chocolate or a great slice of cheese. Aside from food she loves her wonderful husband, her cat, and a great old Hollywood flick like Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Favourite Chocolate - Pecamel.
was the first person hired after BJ took over ownership of the store in 2011. She knew this place was a perfect fit for her before even applying because her family had grown up having Chocolates by Bernard Callebaut for all of the important occasions, holidays, and celebrations in their lives. It was an easy transition to the other side of the chocolate counter. She is now passing the chocolate tradition on to her own children. Cassie makes every customer feel welcome and at home in our store. She also has the opportunity here to showcase her writing skills as a contributor to our blog and Chocolate of the Week feature. Favourite Chocolate - Cinnamon Ginger.
has been on staff since Christmas of 2015 and though she started out as a temporary holiday employee she was too good of a fit to let her go after Christmas was over. Her sense of humour and hard working nature are a huge asset to the business. She’s quickly become a professional chocolate lover and really enjoys researching and learning more about all of our chocolates so that she can give the customer the best possible service and recommendations based on her personal experiences. She also happens to be our store decorator which really showcases her artistic eye and DIY skills. Favourite Chocolate - Orange Leaf.
is our newest staff member and though we’re still getting to know her we can tell she’s one of us. As a coffee lover she has long enjoyed tasting each blend of coffee and picking out the unique flavours and nuances. This skill transfers over to chocolate seamlessly. She loves not just tasting chocolate but really getting to know it, a nerdy side of chocolate tasting that we are so on board with. Her family has been so excited that their mum is working at a chocolate store, it’s almost just like Wonka Land, which is fitting since Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory happened to be her favourite movie as a kid. Favourite Chocolate - Sea Salt Caramel.
