I started in the industry over 20 years ago as an assistant and became a licensed stylist after 3 years assisting. After 5 years working at other salons, I decided to open my own salon with the goal of creating a positive and supportive environment for myself, my team and my clients. I am so passionate about supporting others to thrive and the reward of owning my own business and giving back to the community I live in is truly incredible.
The salon name and philosophy are very close to me, I am committed to growth in both my personal and professional life and my team shares these values. Being self employed has allowed me the opportunity to involve myself in the community and give back where I live and beyond. I am very proud to spearhead the Starfish Backpack Program which feeds vulnerable kids in our community over the weekend. Personal growth is just as important as growing my business and I endeavour to excite others to grow through seeing my efforts and success, whether it be other small business owners, volunteers, colleagues or recipients. We can all make a difference every single day!
I have had a long connection to the lotus flower and it has been part of our logo since long before the re-brand back in 2019. Lotus’ grow in mud yet blossom unstained, they are a symbol of divine beauty, purity, harmony and spiritual awakening. I have experienced and overcome a lot of adversity in my life and much like the lotus, I have blossomed through the mud. I strongly believe that “Everything is Possible” and continue to live by this mantra.
