Daggett is the Creative Director and Founder of Chateau Creative | Entertainment. One shingle focuses on design/marketing, the other tv/film production. Chateau currently has numerous projects in various stages of development, including the adaptation and production of Jukebox.
When she’s not pounding the keys on her computer, Daggett is pounding the pavement on the tennis court, hanging out on the lake, playing hockey, snow skiing, or volunteering with the Whistler Adaptive Snow School.
Born and raised in Paradise Valley, Arizona, Daggett now calls Whistler, British Columbia home.
