Administrative History
Colleen (Chips) Klein was born in Johannesberg, South Africa in 1947 to Thea and Abe Abramson.

Chips and Paul married in 1969 and had two children together: Lazar and Talia. The family immigrated to Guelph, ON in 1975. They were largely motivated to emigrate because they wanted to raise their children in a country without apartheid. Paul worked in engineering sales. Chips turned her focus to entrepreneurship. She designed and developed the Eye Maker line of mirrors. She also founded a business consultant company in 1982 called Chipco Canada Inc. One of her clients was the Women Inventors Project, which was founded in 1986 to support inventive, innovative and scientific projects. Chips has also delivered workshops and seminars to a variety of organizations. She has won numerous awards, including the South African Women for Women's Entrepreneurial Role Model award in 1998.
Around 1980, the parents of both Paul and Chips followed them to Ontario. Paul and Chips moved to Toronto with their children in 1991. After their move, they became involved in the Chabad Lubavitch of Markham and Paul is currently President of the congregation. The Klein family are involved in a variety of sports, including marathon running and water skiing.
