How long have you been a Vancouverite? 21 years
Entrepreneur in the beauty industry. I founded Le Petit Spa in 2003. It is located in the Point Grey area, and is a full service day spa offering waxing, facials, massages, and nail services. Three years later, I started the online store Spa Boutique, Canada’s head-to-toe beauty destination, which stocks skincare and cosmetic products. All of our customer service representatives are certified estheticians that are ready to help educate clients on skincare. Our most popular brands include Clarisonic, Jane Iredale, Dermalogica, Eminence, GM Collin, Jane Iredale make-up, Guinot, Phytomer, and Yonka. The retail Spa Boutique store, at Alma and West 4th Ave, also offers express facials.
Favourite Vancouver restaurant:
Gramercy Grill in Kitsilano is a friendly neighbourhood restaurant with good food and wine. I love how the bar area allows everyone to chat informally and the dining area is cozy and inviting.
Best way to spend $50 in Vancouver:
A glass of wine and appies at the Boathouse by English Bay, on the patio and enjoying the view.
Best place to take an out-of-town guest:
Grouse Mountain is my number one pick. The view is breathtaking and the gondola ride up is a great experience.
Favourite Vancouver memory:
Enjoying the fireworks display on a sailboat. The water, surrounding mountains, and great company showcased what an amazing community event it is during the summer.
