After training back in 2012/13, I have become a Certified Podologist CPod.C., specializing in the foot care of diabetics, seniors and the toes in need. I completed level 5 through the North American School of Podology and now hold my BSc. in Podology!
After gaining my BA.History degree in 2007, I attended Richards Beauty College and Esthetics in 2008 to train in the beauty industry and obtain my diploma. From there my love of feet has brought me to work in all aspects of the industry, spas, salons, nail bars, beauty wholesale, beauty college instructor, and my home. I have competed in Provincials and Nationals Skills Canada, and I returned as a guest judge for six years. As of November 2013 I had participated as a PTC member for Aesthetics SKILLS competition. As of October 4th 2016 I am now certified as a Foot Reflexology Therapist through the Reflexology Association of Canada, and looking forward to beginning another chapter in my care of feet and the body as a whole.
I have been an aesthetician, nail technician for 10 years, and I am looking to provide a safe, clean, professional service's to those that need care, or even just a relaxing spa treat.

Pedicure vs PediCare - What's The Difference?
A pedicure is a cosmetic service performed in a salon to the feet and toenails.
If you want/need more than a cosmetic service, PediCare features:
Foot care by a Podologist
* Use of aseptic techniques beyond provincial/territory requirements to ensure cleanliness
* Personal Protective Equipment for both you and the Podologist to insure your health and safety
* BS Brace is also available to correct involuted and/or ingrown nails without pain or surgery
A Podologist is not a medical doctor, they are someone who has an advanced knowledge in lower limb diseases and disorders, infection control, comprehensive foot and leg evaluation, advanced skin and nail pathology, and diabetic foot syndrome, as well as gait analysis and advanced pedicuring skills. They specialize in pedicuring geriatric, diabetic, and immune compromised clients. To fulfill their education, they must complete numerous case studies and take part in a truly life changing residency program. Upon successful completion, they are entitled to a Bachelor of Science degree in Podology.
The lack of standardization in pedicuring services in salons and spas means that clients who are diabetic, suffer ingrown toenails, skin or nail infections, or even structural disorders may not be getting the proper care that they require. Podologists are required to complete a specific curriculum in order to learn how to care for these clients with special foot care needs in a safe and effective manner. A Podologist can knowledgeably refer you to the proper medical professional when additional attention is needed.
Reflexology? Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the
principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, and ears, which
correspond to every part, gland, and organ of the body. Through
application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension,
improves circulation, and helps promote the natural function of the
related areas of the body.
relaxation, and release of tension; improved circulation; helping the
body to normalize itself naturally, without adverse side effects.
Reflexologist's DO NOT diagnose, prescribe, or treat for specific conditions.
