How long have you been doing hair? 

11 years!

What is your favorite part about the stylist-client relationship? 

My favourite (and the most exhausting part) of the stylist-client relationship is that we are more than just stylists. We are therapists/coaches/beauty experts/etc. We get to know our clients on a really personal level. We celebrate their babies, new jobs, weddings and are there every step of the way for breakups, makeups and everything in between! It’s really something. 

Is there a specific hair type or service that speaks to you?

I am a killer when it comes to quick cuts and colours. I can get you in and out – no questions asked! That being said, I’m loving learning more about creative/vivid colours!

Is there a hobby/interest you have outside of the salon? 

I make big, fun earrings and jewelry (check em out at the front of the store!!!). I also love performing – whether it be improv (I perform with Dungeons and Dragon Improv) or stand up (you can catch me at Wee Johnny’s or the Park Theatre every once and awhile). 

Do you have any long-term goals or dreams?

LONG TERM GOOOOALS!!! I want to have a nice balance between home (with my amazing fiancée and stepdaughter), work, comedy, and making stuff and things. Hey, if anyone can tell me how, LET ME KNOW! 

What is your favorite thing about Sapphire?

Ugh, everything. I work with some of the most inspiring, kind, funny, talented people on this earth. I feel at home at the Sapphire. Kelly and April have built a beautiful space that feels so inclusive and so welcoming and kind. It’s really something else and I’m so happy to be a small part of it.
