I have been in the Industry since 1995 and in 2002 took it to a new level by opening CATWALK Salon Spa. My mom (Jo-Anne) has been an ongoing inspiration to never settle on what you know but to keep evolving as a stylist. I've been an educator and public speaker. I have had the privilege of furthering my education from London to New York, Canada and the Caribbean. I love being involved and giving back to the community. Participating in events such as local theater, high school, beauty culture, and putting on local pride events to name a few, is my passion. My philosophy at Catwalk is to treat you like family and have you leaving like a star.
I have had the pleasure of over 37 years in an industry I love! I have had the privilege of owning my own salon and spa, working internationally and educating as a colour technician. I have had advanced training at Vidal Sassoon in San Francisco and graduated with honours at LA School of Hair Design. I am a certified Hot Heads Extension specialist, am passionate about colour, design cutting and styling including formal styling. My love of the beauty industry keeps me creative, and relevant. Continued education is a must! I also help to co-ordinate events, advertising and team education.
Prior to joining the Catwalk team and moving to Lethbridge I ran a small business focusing mostly on gel nails. Since relocating I have added to my skills set manicures, pedicures, body waxing and body treatments. Having taken part in advanced skin care and facial treatments with Skeyndor and make up application with SST Cosmetics, I feel the passion I have for the industry has grown to make me a well rounded esthetician! I love people and it reflects in the care I take with each client.
I joined the Catwalk team in 2010 and have been in the industry since 2008. I am fluent and English and Korean. A special moment for me was attending the Style Masters International Awards show in Lisbon to represent Catwalk. This trip made me believe in the importance of furthering my education to become a top hair artist. I have a background of a Bachelor of Fine Arts program, I am meticulous, creative and a passionate trendsetter. Some of my specialties include Hot Heads Hair Extensions, hair tattooing, balayage, Asian hair and am on point with the latest trend cuts and colours. I am also a make up artist! I share my work on Instagram @SHINE.AIMSTAR
I completed my training in 2008 through Marvel College Calgary, specializing in both hair and make up services and LOVE to pamper my guests. In 2013 I completed my educator training for Redken Canada at the Exchange in Toronto and found a passion for inspiring my peers in the industry. I've a worked hair shows, weddings and runway shows all over North America and trained Internationally as well. 2015 I was head hunted to educate for a Mirabella Make up line and am now fortunate enough to spread my love of beauty in an even greater capacity.
As a hard working stylist I pride myself on the ability to help you make the best choices for your hair. My first job as your new stylist is to educate you on your hair by giving you the most information on products, tools and latest trends so we keep making every day feel like you just stepped out of the salon. I take pride in your haircuts and will wow you with my colours. So let's stop going to the fast food for hair and start going to a stylist the cares about you and your hair.

I believe communication is the key in achieving optimal results and am always up the challenge of new trends.
I have been interested in colour since I was little. Art has always been my passion. Every head is an open canvas; a way of expressing ourselves. Why not express ourselves with the way we look in everyday life? I think that finding a stylist is like kissing a frog prince. You have to kiss a lot of toads to find your prince! I always like to ask the right questions to fit the individual's wish. I love working with bright colours and creating a design that makes you look exceptional which makes me feel great!
Upon graduating in 2012 at the L A School of hair design I began my apprenticeship at Catwalk. I have since completed my journeyman certificate. I love my profession because I get to make every person that sits in my chair feel great about themselves. I meet so many new people every day, with a different story and wanting a different look and I get to help them accomplish that. I love taking advance training to learn about the latest trends and styles to share with my clients.
