HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BUSINESS?
I incorporated my business in December 2015, and have officially started in May 2016
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I was inspired to start my own business after watching my daughter start her own business at the age of 5. She excitedly begged me to help her start her own small business. After watching her dive headfirst into it, without any fear, it made me realize that I have no excuses to not try myself. I’ve spent her whole life reinforcing to my daughter that she can do anything she puts her mind to, so she challenged me to do the same.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
I love to make people feel beautiful, important and cared for. By enhancing someone’s natural beauty and offering excellent service and encouragement, my goal is for each client to leave feeling confident, gorgeous and like they matter as a person.
WHAT DO YOU DREAM FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?
I would love to expand and offer a multitude of wellness services. I would love to have my daughter on board in the future and have structured my corporation for that possibility one day. I want to give back to the community; that is the core value for me personally, and for my business. I am involved in volunteering within my community and wish to offer my services and skills to help others in any capacity. I have recently volunteered as a makeup artist providing makeovers to women living at the YWCA. Women often have the tendency to put themselves last, so it was amazing to see how beautiful they looked with their hair and makeup done for them. When you feel like you look your best, it can really help with your mindset and boost self-confidence.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?

HOW DO YOU PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
I love bubble baths! Bacon always cheers me up too. I constantly make lists of everything in my life that I have to be grateful for and I appreciate life and all it has to offer.
