My name is Chantal Rolande Kathleen Plourde — but you can call me Tal Rolande. I was born in Scarborough and spent the first part of my life on Lake Simcoe before moving to Ottawa to earn my BA at Carleton University. Now, I’m back in Toronto studying Digital Analytics at George Brown College.
Currently, I’m a writer at The Home Depot and the co-founder of Purple Penguin. Over the last 9 years, I’ve held positions at The Home Depot Canada, HomeStars, and Shared. My freelance work has been featured on the Ontario Cannabis Store, Saskatchewan, and BC Cannabis stores for San Rafael ’71, Gage Cannabis and NOYA Cannabis.
