15 years ago, I decided to jump head first in to my fascination with the beauty industry, and to this day I have never looked back. I started my hair and makeup education in Canada, and that's when I knew I was in love. I went on to train in New York, Italy, London, and Paris. At 23, I found myself opening my first salon in Canada, which allowed me to learn the ins and outs of salon management. In addition to learning the organizational and leadership skills needed to run a tight ship, I also witnessed first hand how much more beautiful a woman is when she's feeling confident. This is what continues to motivate me each and every day.
Along the way, I found my passion in weddings and started freelancing. Being part of a bride's big day was so exhilarating, and seeing that I was able to contribute to their happiness and excitement was the hook. These days, I am fortunate enough to be able to travel internationally for destination weddings, and call Sayulita, Narayat, Mexico - my home away from home. Although I've now been a part of too many weddings to count, I can still remember the joy of each and every bridal party I've worked with. Today, I co-own Studio Mi in Canada, which I own with two other incredible, confident women who keep our salon banging while I'm away.
I am dedicated to providing a cool, relaxed and fun experience for each and every woman I work with. Whether it be your wedding, a photoshoot, or as a client in my chair, I am confident that you will feel gorgeous and carefree when you leave.
