OWNER | SPA DIRECTOR
Aina began with a vision to create a space where therapists and guests could explore wellness together in many different facets. Entrepreneurship was a bumpy road and threw me outside of my comfort zone in every way imaginable, but fast forward to today and Aina is everything I envisioned. I love being surrounded by powerful women who share my passion for holistic wellness and helping those around them live a better life. Every therapist we have the pleasure of working with brings something new to the table, allowing us to constantly grow and improve. The smile on our guest's faces makes every day heart warming. My self care routine consists of spending time in nature, meditation, yoga and snowboarding.
I have been working in the spa industry since 2012, focusing my work on esthetics. I have worked in a variety of resort day spas throughout Ontario and British Columbia. Throughout my career I have advanced my studies in foot care; most recently receiving my Certified Podologist designation with the North American School of Podology. I enjoy all aspects of esthetics and wellness and strive to make people feel comfortable and taken care of. I exude great passion for my work; whether it be body sugaring, guiding people towards their specific skin care goals, treating foot issues or melting away stress with a relaxation massage. Since joining the Aina family in 2016, I have become more health conscious and appreciate that health truly starts from the inside, by taking care of your body and mind, along with making smart food choices. When I am not at the spa I enjoy exploring Kamloops and surrounding areas, working on home projects and DIY's and hanging out with my cat Walnut.

I have been in the wellness field for more than 10 years now. I like to approach wellness from a full body function point-of-view; not concentrating on one area allows me to treat the body as a whole. While I enjoy many modalities, Cupping Therapy, Prenatal Massage, Raindrop Massage and Therapeutic work are all true passions of mine. My new-found passion for Reflexology and its amazing results on my clients has been very exciting and rewarding. Working at Aina has shown me that when like-minded people, who have a passion for the greater good, work together, amazing things happen; and they do on a daily basis at Aina. When not enjoying my days at Aina, I love spending time with my family, exploring the outdoors and dabbling in a bit of Interior Design.

I joined the team at Aina because I believe self care is so important. Aina has the positive vibes I needed to encourage personal growth and healing on many levels. I love working here because I can help so many people meet their relaxation goals with a holistic wellness approach. I am passionate about the esthetics field in general, as it has so much to offer. I feel quite lucky to expand my knowledge at Aina. When at home I enjoy nature, outdoor activities and spending time with animals.

I have always been very passionate about health, wellness, and helping others feel good. Coming into Aina every day brings me so much joy knowing that myself and our wonderful team can pass on our positivity to each guest that walks through the door. I find it very rewarding to see so mangy bright smiles come out of each treatment, knowing that we helped them escape the outside world if even just for a short while. I work alongside the most inspiring, and enthusiastic women, that with each their own unique personalities teaches me something new daily. As I am constantly striving to live a more plant based and holistic lifestyle I am so lucky to be in an environment where that is one of the main values. Outside of coordinating at the spa I love exploring anywhere outdoors, going on thrifting adventures, and spending time laughing with friends and family.
I joined the Aina family in June 2018. It is such an amazing place to work and I'm so grateful that I was given the opportunity to work alongside such an incredible and talented group of ladies. I've been in the wellness and beauty industry since 2005. I started my journey as a hairdresser and in May 2015 my husband and I opened a strength and conditioning gym for athletes. It's important to us to help these young athletes achieve greatness and give them support through their athletic career. I've always enjoyed helping people feel amazing about themselves inside and out and I feel truly blessed that this was the path chosen for me. I have two amazing little boys and in incredible husband that complete my life. All my spare time is spent making memories with them.
