Sometimes the universe provides incredible gifts.
Imagine what it would be like to find your dream home come for sale during a global pandemic. In peak times of real estate bidding wars, imagine that your bid actually won. Imagine that one of those new home owners is an esthetician by trade, only to discover that said newly acquired dream home is legally zoned for a personal service business. This dream became glorious reality to Amy. In a time where the personal service industry has faced the longest duration of closures, restrictions and was the hardest hit industry than any other public service sector… this home listing, bid win, move, zoning discovery, spa build and successful opening was none other than a miraculous universal gift despite happening during some of the most trying of times.
After over twenty-five years of advancing her career in the beauty industry, the pandemic situation did not have permission to force Amy into a different industry of work. She refused to allow it. When she was young, she was lucky to have found her passion and develop key tools to make a fulfilling career of it. This passion and drive has never lost steam. From treatment provider, to team leader, to college level instructor, to regional education, to territory management and now business ownership, this is what sums up Amy’s wonderful career path.
Amy’s mission is to simply share. Share her knowledge, share a helping hand, share tried and true methods of self-betterment. She to loves to teach, but also to learn. Despite working in an educators role for more than half of her career span, she has never stopped learning by attending conferences, trade shows, enrolling in new courses annually and updating her credentials, voluntarily.
In addition to the joy she receives in witnessing her student’s success, some of her other career highlights are; being the published and featured makeup artist for Toronto’s Elevate Magazine in 3 issues, working with Olympic hockey champs Becky Kellar and Cheryl Pounder, makeup for Canadian rocker Sass Jordan and pampering some wives of former Toronto Maple Leaf hockey players with spa treatments.
Amy is honoured to have been recruited to sit and remains to be an active member of the esthetics Program Advisory Committee (PAC committee) for Niagara College, Lambton College and St Clair College.
A cause which Amy is an advocate for, is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), a permanent brain injury caused by in-utero exposure to alcohol and/or narcotics. For this cause, Amy attends annual conferences, caregiver support groups and fund raisers. She strives to act as a catalyst for awareness and open dialog to aid in prevention.
When she is not working, Amy can be found enjoying her time with husband Paul, step-sons Christopher and Ashlin and her sweet basset hound Daisy. Amy credits much of her personal and career success to her extremely supportive husband, parents, closest girlfriends and sister.
