YOU ARE THAT WHICH YOU ARE SEEKING.
When I was a young girl my favourite book was – A New You The Art of Good Grooming by Emily Wilkens. I learned a myriad of beauty tips like using the eraser of a pencil to push back cuticles and what tools and products to put in your beauty box. I truly enjoyed practicing all of those Beauty Rituals so much so that I enrolled in Modelling classes throughout my teens.
“Give me a Stage and I am on it.”
While attending Humber College in Toronto I specialized in Makeup-Artistry and studied with the Famous MAC Line!
Upon graduating, I returned back to Sudbury to obtain hands-on experience. I began working in a cosmetic’s department store and then a beauty hair salon as their makeup artist.
On March 5th, 1991 is when I took a LEAP OF FAITH and opened Never Say Never Studio of Glamour.
Looking to increase my menu of services I hired a retired aesthetics teacher, her reputation was… if you have survived the German teachings of Mrs. Karen Stark you’ve survived the SHARK!! Her in-depth knowledge and training in the aesthetics industry were second to none. After completing the required hours of certification, I graduated from the BarryDowne School of Aesthetics with Honours.”
In 1994, I was enlightened by the AVEDA philosophies and began undertaking more studies. The AVEDA Concepts and Rituals of THE POWER OF TOUCH was implemented and I became Sudbury’s first AVEDA Concept Spa! The on-going education and tremendous support from this company have truly empowered my success. I am truly Grateful for all of the relationships that have evolved over the years with the Collega Family!
In 2007 I had the pleasure of meeting Olwen Hyross, MSBth. President & CEO of, Vital Beauty Products Inc. Her 40+ years of experience and her philosophy of being ahead of the crowd have provided me with the latest breakthrough technology in production systems as well as an in-depth training. I am always inspired and grateful for her integrity and leadership.
“The true mark of a leader is the willingness to stick with a bold course of action — an unconventional business strategy, a unique product-development roadmap, a controversial marketing campaign — even as the rest of the world wonders why you’re not marching in step with the status quo. In other words, real leaders are happy to zig while others zag. They understand that in an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special.”
