What lead you to become a Nail Tech?
My sister 🙂 At the time she had just got out of cosmo in high school and she really wanted to take a nail course. She found a course in Calgary and thought it would be awesome to do it together as I loved nails and was doing mine with the good old glue on dollar store tips. Plus it was a great way to add some income to our young family while being able to work from home. Needless to say it didn’t take much convincing and I was hooked.
If you could do any other career, what would you do?
Professional Crafter – In fact I haven’t met a craft project that I haven’t liked. Other then that if I could be a sleeping newborn holder I think that would also be an amazing job!
What do you enjoy most about being a Educator for Fuzion?
Sharing something that I love. Nails is like a addiction for me. If I’m not doing them I’m looking at pictures or watching videos. I have a little note book with me always incase I get a nail idea so that I can quickly draw it out. It makes me so happy. So when I can share that with a new tech or a seasoned veteran tech, it’s the ultimate high. 🙂
Who inspires you and why?
Firstly my daughter. She’s also a lover of the arts and seeing her constantly pushing to be better inspires me to constantly upgrade my training and try new things. Secondly Beverly Townsend I have admired her work since I was a nail baby. Her talent and drive to better her craft and our industry has always been a great inspiration to me.
What is your ideal work environment?
My ideal work environment is a happy one. Doesnt matter if it’s a dirty job no one wants to do if people are happy it makes it a whole lot more bearable.
What’s your philosophy towards your work?
Give it your all and do your best or don’t do it all all. I have always and will always give 110% in every job I do. 🙂
Proudest career moment?
It was the CNTC in Edmonton 2017. I work really hard on my nails to do something that would stand out. I went with a ‘Phantom of the Opera’ theme. Having nail techs who I look up to grab my hand and love them was amazing!!!! My cheeks hurt from smiling.
