Meet Our Team

The Backbone of The Edward Experience

A premier residence of this calibre needs a premier team. In developing The Edward, we started with a superb central location, then engaged architects and consultants with experience in retirement living. Most importantly, we talked with our prospective residents, listening to their preferences and advice.

The result? Every member of The Edward team is trained to deliver caring, attentive, professional service that will surpass your expectations.

Resident Experience Manager,
Raphael Fauve

Raphael’s decade of hospitality experience at hotels around the world is a natural fit for his work at The Edward, where he ensures the quality of resident experiences in our community.

Born and raised in northwest France, he is a world traveller who came to Canada originally as a tourist and immediately fell in love with the country.

When he is not travelling and working, Raphael enjoys a lifelong interest in cinema. With post-secondary studies focused on Cinema History, he has acted in short films, written screenplays and worked in mutliple roles on film sets.

He is also active in sports, especially volleyball and soccer, and takes advantage of his new home in Calgary to explore the nearby Rocky Mountains year-round.

Program Curator,
Deanna Bensler

As a certified personal trainer with Active Aging Certification focusing on Older Adult fitness, Deanna has over 20 years in the fitness industry. She is also a certified Activity Coordinator in accordance with The Alberta Seniors & Community Housing Association, focusing on recreation, leisure and program development for seniors. Her depth of experience as an advocate for seniors’ health and fitness ensures our residents continue to live their best lives as part of the Edward community.

In 2019, Deanna was featured in Impact magazine as one of the top 10 fitness instructors in Canada, further emphasizing her genuine desire to impact the lives of others through fitness and community.

In her personal time, you can find Deanna hiking, biking, and running in the mountains. She loves to cook and spend time with her husband and three children.
