Meet the Staff working at the Alberta Branch

Michael Tryon,
Executive Director

Michael is your go-to man for all things CPF. Whatever it may be, Michael can provide you the guidance, support, or resource that you are looking for! He is a passionate French Immersion advocate by day and in his free time can be found volunteering for Edmonton Police Victim Services and is a Reserve Military Officer in the Canadian Forces.

Sylviane Pichardie,
Network Manager, Finance

Sylviane is the best person to speak with about CPF’s bookkeeping, reporting and the overall financial management. She strongly believes in giving young Canadians the opportunity to learn and continue their studies in French.

Trish Rognvaldson,
Chapter Development Coordinator

Based out of Cochrane, Trish has been involved with CPF since her children entered French Immersion in grade one. Her roles have included Chapter President, member of the Alberta Board of Directors, and she is now your go-to person for anything related to chapter support across the province. She is passionate about creating opportunities for students to learning and use French in and outside of the classroom. Away from her office, you will find Trish outdoors either hiking, gardening, or on the water somewhere in her canoe.                                                                                             

Isabelle Yeo,
Branch Outreach Coordinator

Isabelle is your behind the scene kind of gal – most of the time. She coordinates any special projects or programs put on by the Alberta branch and provides general office support. She is also a passionate advocate for all those learning French. She loves to go on adventures whether near, far, big, or small with her family.

Morgan Shervey,
Project Coordinator

Based out of Calgary, Morgan is the one you have to thank for the quality content on CPF Alberta’s social media pages; she also helps coordinate any special projects or programs put on by the Alberta branch. When not at her computer, she can be found hiking in the Rockies or curled up with a good book.

Sara Djellal, Tutoring Project Coordinator

Bonjour, my name is Sara and I am the program coordinator for CPF AB & NWT. I am passionate about French learning in our community.  

Kiyana Nanji, Project Coordinator

Kiyana is currently based out of Calgary and is pursuing an Elementary Education Degree at Campus-Saint Jean in Edmonton. She assists with the CPF tutoring program as well as any special programs, projects, and events put together by the Alberta Branch. When Kiyana isn’t busy at her computer you can find her making charcuterie boards, playing with her puppy Koda or exploring the world!
