About Me:

I always knew I wanted to be a hairdresser and own my own salon. There is something very special about making someone look and feel their best. I was 19 when Tangles opened in 2003 and since then it has grown year after year. Tangles is an award-winning community salon known for giving back. I believe in delivering quality beauty services using the best beauty brands availible. I have continued to upgrade my education with industry-focused courses and training both on beauty techniques and management. Such as earning a certificate in spa management and hair colour master program.. The team  travels for educational experiences in Toronto, New York, and Paris for training, photoshoots, and competitions.

My specialty is solving beauty challenges particularly working with grey hair.  Helping clients choose to "blend it, cover it, or go with it". I can help with the choices and give options to best suite clients preferences. Hair colour needs to suit a client's personality, time commitments, and lifestyle.  Check out the blog section on the Tangles website for my beauty tips and tricks!
Personally, I have a passion for giving back to the community. I host and organize a women’s trade show called The East Gwillimbury Women’s show. The event has been a huge success in showcasing women’s business but also over $100,000.00 has been donated to Southlake Hospital Cancer Centre.
I am also currently a author in a column called “ Who Gives….. East Gwillimbury?” Focusing on people, who give back to the community, in a local publication called The Bulletin. I am a co author in a book called The Magic of New Beginnings, I talk about the lessons I've learned along the way and how giving back has impacted my life and business. 
I have a high energy level to balance family life along with business and the business of giving back.
