which five words describe you best
kind-hearted, eccentric, passionate, bright and ambitious

how did you get your career start and what path have you taken since?
when i was younger, I always aspired to become a hairdresser. i loved playing with people’s hair. when I started school, i became distracted with other career possibilities and tested them out. however, i was never 100% happy with those pursuits. one day my hairdresser gave me Tracy’s card and recommended i connect and have a chat with her. AND… here i am and loving every minute of working in such a positive and nurturing place. i have been fortunate to have done all of my training so far in the salon under Tracy, with extra tips and tricks from the rest of the tream. training is always fun as I get to be creative and am constantly challenged. work is fantastic as I get to interact with awesome people every day.  i’m so excited for my future.

what’s the best lesson you’ve learned along the way?
be true to yourself and don’t waste time being unhappy

what are you known for?
my smile

who inspires you?
my parents, Richard and Michelle. they’re so supportive of my journey so far. i admire how caring, loving and persistent they are and how they always see a positive in any situation. they’ve taught me to keep progressing no matter what life throws at you.

what are you passionate about?
spending quality time with family, friends and my fur babies. i also love music and art.

if you could be any animal in the world, what animal would be and why?

a dog, then I will get all the cuddles

what does being a hairdresser mean to you?
being able to make someone feel relaxed and cared for by giving them the best version of myself. i love having that client feel beautiful inside and out when they leave the salon.
