Meet the Team


Gregory Macdonald
founder + president

Taking a bath to some may be a nightmare, to others it may just be a daily routine - but for Gregory Macdonald, it is a way of life. After spending years and countless dollars on mediocre bath products, Greg founded Bathorium and set out to create premium bath soaks that not only give a unique experience for the bather but also a product that the user can benefit from both physically and mentally. Favourite Crush is Northern Sage Recovery and Aphrodite - North America's Largest Bath Bomb!

Mathieu Roy Chabot
fulfillment + co-founder

With a keen eye for impeccable products and a love for innovation, Mathieu joined Gregory on the Bathorium adventure in 2014. What Mathieu loves about taking a bath is the "me" time, time to turn off the cell phone, turn off the television and focus on self-reflecting. Mathieu enjoys taking baths in total darkness with the light flicker of a candle, and a small stream cold running water. Favourite Bathorium bath bomb is J'adore Matcha with a little bit of BeRejuvenated Bubble Elixir.

Jiali Ou
graphic design and packaging specialist

The love of colours and vivid imageries has been Jiali’s design inspiration from the start. Now, she is a graphic communication designer and founder of PBDen Graphics Communication, working closely with clients to help full fill their passions through design. She is experienced in both print and digital media and consistently aims to create a rich, meaningful and visceral user experience. Jiali has received a Bachelor of Design from Ryerson University, and is specialized in brand management and identity. Her favourite Bathorium Crush is Sea Kelp Serenity, as it leaves you feeling silky smooth and moisturized. It’s relaxation at its finest

Mark Rhymes
facilities + procurement manager

East Coast at heart. Mark made his way to Ontario a few years back and fell in love with the small city feel of Ottawa that had a lot to offer. He never had thought of baths as a ritual but after meeting Mathieu and Greg he knew he needed to be part of this growing business in self care and taking time for yourself. Mark’s favourite Bathorium product is Ancient Oat Hydration.

Griffin Wright
fulfillment manager
Griffin started her journey at Bathorium as a retail associate in our pop-up, and has since fallen in love with fulfillment and the energy of the warehouse. She believes every Bathorium package opened should be an experience on its own. Passionate about a truly relaxing bath, Griffin’s favourite soak is the perfect mix of Sea Kelp Serenity Crush and Milk Bath Soak.

In her spare time, Hannah enjoys creating and exploring different mediums of visual art and spending time in Nature. Her favourite bath product is the BeCalm Bubble Elixir.

laura rogonyski
production manager

Laura joined the warehouse as a general assistant, but swiftly headed to the production floor to learn the ins-and-outs of crush and bomb making- and never left! Forged in suds and salt, she splits her production schedule with herding a pack of dogs around Ottawa and tracking down the best birding in the valley. Her favourite product is the Pomelo Grove bath bomb.

debbie mercier
senior warehouse manager

With her passion of walking, golfing and paddle boarding as well as a proud mom of four and two lovely labs, Debbie needs to take time to relax in her favourite Milk Bath Soak or Rosemary Citrus Crush (only found in our crush gift sets)! She jumped into this amazing company a few years ago with her awesome nephew Greg and has been soaking in it ever since!
