As a Washington State University alumna, Chantal remains loyal to her Cougs. She started in the financial world as a WSU student working at the Bank of Pullman. After graduating with a degree in Business Administration, she moved to the west side and started her career as a financial advisor. Chantal founded Balcom Investments, Inc., Balcom Investments Solutions and other financial firms throughout her career. She has been serving clients as a Registered Financial Consultant for over 25 years and holds her Series 6, 7, 24, 65, and life & disability licenses.

Chantal appreciates the challenge of determining a client’s specific needs and goals, and then developing various investment strategies to help her clients reach their goals. Chantal grew up bucking hay bales on the family farm in eastern Washington, teaching her the value of hard work and to work smart.
"Don't look for the needle in the haystack. Just buy the haystack!" --John C. Bogle
She applies this work ethic to her clients, staying sharp in the industry with awareness of resources, programs and changes in laws. Chantal regularly attends conferences and pursues continuing education to better help provide her clients with current strategies in their financial journey. Chantal enjoys serving her clients, allowing them to become a part of her family and treating them with respect, understanding, and compassion.
Chantal enjoys traveling to the bayous of Louisiana or countryside of eastern Washington to visit family. Traveling is a passion of hers, and she has done two cross-country road trips in recent years. Chantal avidly boats during the summer months and snow skis during the winter months.
