Meet Our Amazing Team

I was born and raised in Labrador City, NL, surrounded by a family of Labrador entrepreneurs. I moved to Fredericton, NB, in 2011 to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management. During the summers I returned to Labrador to work and did nails as a side hobby, which is where the name Pimp My Nails began as a social media identity.
In December 2015, I finished University and decided to turn the side hobby into a career by enrolling in the Nail Technician program at Majestany Institute, graduating in April of 2016.
Upon graduation I returned to Labrador City and started doing more nails, and quickly realized this was my passion and it was time to run with it. When the opportunity came up to rent a salon space in town, the seed was planted for what would soon become our salon, Pimp My Nails Plus. After a year of renovations and planning, Pimp My Nails Plus opened in February of 2018.
I currently take on the Management/Ownership role in the salon which is definitely a full time job! Between advertising, marketing, ordering, payroll, scheduling, and the million little things that come up in the run of a day, it's busy! Unfortunately I haven't been able to do nails lately due to the development of a product allergy. I miss it so much and especially miss my amazing clients!
While the Salon takes up a lot of my time, I still like to indulge in other hobbies that include painting, spending time at the cabin, going for walks with my kids, snowmobiling in winter and fishing / quad rides in the summer, cooking, and spending time with my family. I'm very lucky to get to spend my free time with my fiance and precious boys: David, Howie, Wesley and Sprinkles.
