As an Artistic Director, I’ve been on the cutting floor since 2001. I come into work as a professional hairstylist with a good attitude. I consult with my clients, see what their needs are, find out what they would like, and give them my professional opinion as to what I think about their style, colour, etc. I was trained in California at the Sebastian Academy and I am always upgrading and wanting to learn new trends.
In 2002, I was nominated for the Joico Hair Fantasy show, and came in 1st place. In 2009, I was nominated for the North American Hairdressing Awards as Texture Stylist of the Year, and also nominated for the Contessa Awards—Texture Hairstylist of the Year. I was also nominated for Ontario Hairstylist of the Year, which led me to breakfast television with one of my hair collections. Later that year, I was nominated in the Mirror Awards for both Texture Hairstylist of the Year and Transformation Artist of the Year.
