About Chantel in the 3rd Person

 

ENTREPRENEUR:
Tremitiere created BLANK MiNDZ, a video and graphic production, brand strategy management and mobile app development company in 2005.  

BASKETBALL:

Tremitiere started every game for the Auburn Tigers women's basketball team in 1990 and 1991.  In 1990, she was selected to the NCAA All-Tournament Team. She earned her bachelor's degree in Public Relations from Auburn, then was an assistant basketball coach for Auburn (1991–92); the University of Texas (1992–93), and the University of Massachusetts Amherst (1993–96). During this time, Chantel continued her hoop dreams overseas, playing for Lotos Gdynia in Turkey, where her play caught the attention of professional scouts.

In the 1996 draft, Tremitiere was selected as the 18th overall pick by the Sacramento Monarchs. She led the WNBA with an average of 37.5 minutes per game. Chantel was the Sacramento Monarchs' original point guard. 

 

Chantel was traded to Utah in 1998 and played two seasons for the Starzz. In 2000, she was acquired in  the expansion draft and joined the newly formed Indiana Fever. She played one season for the Fever, suffering from an ankle injury most of the year which limited her playing time and effectiveness. Tremitiere retired on April 23, 2001, from the WNBA at the age of 31. 


MUSIC PRODUCER:

After Chantel's first year playing in the WNBA, she signed a contract to be represented by Master P at No Limit Sports. During her time with the Sports Agency, she produced the Hip Hop Song "Hoody Hoo" for the rap group TRU. 4 million copies of the song were sold and the song  peaked at #31 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, becoming Tru's signature song.

ACTRESS:

When she left basketball, Tremitiere pursued other interests such as acting. Chantel has always been an actress and probably should have followed that calling on her life. She can be seen in the 2002 Walt Disney movie "Double Teamed" about Heather and Heidi Burge, WNBA superstars.

WRITER/DIRECTOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER:
After retiring from the WNBA, Chantel returned to her hometown of York, PA where she directed and produced numerous faith-based plays. The "H.Y.P.E. World (Have Youth Praise Everyday), which played in the historic Strand Capitol in York, was sold out within hours. 

STUDENT:

After graduating from Auburn University in 1992 and entering the "real world" of professional sports, acting, producing, and starting her own business, Chantel decided to follow through on a promise she made to her mother of earning a Master's Degree. She returned to her Alma Mater to pursue an MBA in the fall of 2014 and is on schedule to graduate in December, 2015. But she does not want to stop there, looking to become the first Auburn athlete to win an SEC Championship, go pro in their sport, and then come back to Auburn to earn a PhD. She completed her PHD in August, 2017.

 

ACTIVIST:

Chantel has held many charity basketball games, bringing businesses and celebrities together for the benefit of the community in Sacramento and York. She continues her commitment to community service, speaking for youth groups and volunteering to work with at-risk youth. She was also a guest speaker at North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC)'s  annual conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

 

DAUGHTER:

Tremitiere was born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. She was then adopted into the family of William and the late Barbara Tremitiere as an infant and grew up in York, Pennsylvania. She has 14 brothers and sisters of differing ethnic backgrounds. She is first of the Tremitiere children to earn their PhD., following in her mother's footsteps.
