What are you most complimented on in your work?
My connection with my clients… (but it’s pretty easy to connect with amazing people!)
Who is your ideal client?
My ideal client is literally each and every one of mine. All my peeps have become family to me and I genuinely love and adore every single one of them. (Especially the ones that bring me yummy baking and Starbucks ;)
How long have you been in the industry?
When I was 12 years old my first job was in a salon answering phones, sweeping hair, and assisting stylists. I went to Calgary for hair school after graduation and have been working in a salon since. Do I admit I have been graduated since 2002?!?
What are you passionate about professionally and personally?
Professionally I am hashtag blessed to spend time with clients and co-workers that inspire and challenge me. I love that I get to work in a place that not only encourages us furthering our education but expects it! A lot of stylists burn out after doing it as long as I have, but I work in a salon that keeps me growing and learning which keeps me excited and inspired.
Personally my passion is definitely my family. I have a pretty cool husband that I not only like looking at but also actually like hanging out with, and my three daughters that are pretty fun to hang out with too. So if I’m not working, my time and energy is fully on them.
What would you do even if you didn’t get paid?
Is sleep an appropriate answer? I’m super good at that.
I also LOVE decorating. I love interior design and if I hadn’t sucked so bad at math I would have gone down that career path instead.
What is your biggest accomplishment professionally and personally?
Personally my family. So far so good. My kids haven’t gone to jail yet and they all seem relatively healthy so I’m calling that a win! If we are speaking professionally though, it’s working with my Prim fam. These woman (and our one handsome man) are family to me. Everyone believes in positivity, growth, and supporting each other. I love my job so much and a large part of that is the people I spend each day with!
