Chanel is a Project Manager at Forsythes Technology and has almost 10 years in a myriad of IT and HR roles spanning from support through to Business Analysis and Project Management. She has worked in the tertiary, government and private sectors.

Her first degree was in Psychology but after finishing that she realised it wasn’t for her and immediately enrolled in a Masters of IT followed by a Graduate Certificate in Project Management, which was a much better fit. From there, she continued on an exciting career journey solving business problems, improving the way people do work, leading projects and leveraging new technology to make people’s work-life easier. Last year she achieved PMP Certification. As a Business Analyst and Project Manager, Chanel builds relationships, ensures everything is documented and work is delivered on time and to a high standard.

2018 is Chanel’s second year with hyp, this year in an Executive director role as Secretary. She particularly enjoys contributing her organisation skills and IT enthusiasm to the team.

Outside of work, she is a wine and cheese enthusiast but balances these delicious pursuits with her long term involvement in Tae Kwon-Do. She has a second degree black belt and is an assistant instructor.
