How long have you been with Chatters?
I’ve been with Chatters for 5 years.

What are some of your favourite products?
I love anything by Redken as I’m also a Redken artist on the side.  

What have you learned from working at Chatters?
I learned how to communicate with clients about both their needs and their issues. I’ve also learned lots about how to grow myself and be a part of a family with my team.

What’s one of your favorite things about your job?
Everyday is a little different, no two clients are alike so you are always doing something new.

How did you get into a styling career?
When I was 14 I was modeling for L’Oréal in Vancouver and when I saw the passion that the artist had on stage it inspired me to join the industry.  

If you could style anyone’s hair who would it be?
Chris Hemsworth; he has such great long hair as Thor.

What is your favourite hair era and why?
I always say I should have been a stylist in the 80s because I love the big hair.  

What do you like to do on a day off?
I like to relax at home or go to the movies.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
Well I love to travel, I am going to the Caribbean soon, then next year going to India. I would also love to travel to Belize as well.

Do you have a personal philosophy?
I like to push myself everyday to do something out of my comfort zone to help me grow.

If you could give it, what advice would you give to your younger self?
Being a bit more aware of my soundings and what’s going on around. This would have helped me grow faster and be more self aware.

What inspires you as a stylist?
My coworkers, they inspire me to be better. We always have little competitions in the salon to strive and push each other forward. This helps me to become more confident in my skills.
