I come from a family of hairstylists - my mother, my father, uncles, you name it. As a child, I spent numerous hours walking around the salon, watching my family do what they do best. The inspiration and passion started at a very young age, when I received the opportunity to cut my very first client’s hair when I was 11 years old. Not only was the client satisfied, but I was fascinated how I was able to change their outlook and spirit with a simple haircut.
My journey as a hairstylist started with the fantastic opportunity to enroll in a one-year training in a renowned school, James Albert School of Cosmetology in Newport Beach, California.
After the completion of my 1-year program in Newport, I moved back to Calgary and joined my dad at the Avalon Salon. I have now been working and managing Avalon salon for 7 years and have achieved a long list of accomplishments including: Miss Universe Canada 2013 and American Crew Canadian All-Star Challenge Winner 2016. I was also the first person ever to place both 1st and 2nd in the American Crew All-Star Challenge in Canada.
