Randi is a Montana native who graduated from MSU in 2006 with a BS in Health and Human Development. In 2007, Randi and her husband moved to northern California, seeking a change and chasing warmer weather. There, she attended California State University–Sacramento, where she graduated with a Master of Social Work degree in 2011. Throughout her time in California, she worked for a County Office of Education with foster and homeless youth, as well as for a local alternative high school as a School Social Worker. Upon moving back to Montana in 2014, she began working at Big Brothers Big Sisters as the Program Director, overseeing four mentoring programs within Park County. She began with L’esprit in October 2016, with the desire to focus her work on mental health. She is currently a Social Work Licensure Candidate (SWLC) and is working for L’esprit as an Outpatient therapist, and she has a caseload of clients of all ages. She enjoys working with clients of differing ages in a variety of different settings. In her free time, she loves hanging out with her husband and two adorable little girls, Cambria and Everleigh. She enjoys summer activities like floating the river, hiking, and camping, but she’s been ruined by mild California winters, so during the colder months, you can find her curled up next to the fireplace with a book or her crochet supplies. She was born and raised in the Livingston/Bozeman area, so although her thin skin longs for warmer weather, her heart’s desire to get back to her roots ultimately won out.
Nicolle Bellerive has a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters in Social Work. She worked teaching in the Bozeman public school district and for Great Beginnings Montessori School. Her work with children who required a different educational experience started her journey with clinical social work in mental health. Nicolle has worked with L’esprit since the agency opened in June 2015. Her experience with the Park County School District started as a CSCT therapist with East Side School 2015-2016, and presently as an Outpatient therapist and CSCT Therapist Supervisor. Nicolle enjoys the typical Montana life style and outdoor amenities of the area, including hiking and running with her dogs, fishing, skiing, and playing in the Yellowstone River.
Chantelle Plauché is the founder and executive director of L’esprit. She obtained her Master’s degree in Social Work in 2006, and has since worked with a diverse range of individuals and families as a mental health counselor both in the schools and in her private practice. She has formed strong working relationships with many local organizations and school and community program leaders. Through her work, she became aware of the much larger, unmet need for further youth mental health services in the community, thus, giving her the idea for L’esprit which she opened in June of 2015.
