About Me

I started modelling at age 22 when I was approached by a local store in Toronto. I did freelance modeling for 3 years by working for local boutiques and designers. In 2009 Ben Barry contacted me as he was casting models for Cheri Milaney's real women show at LG Fashion week. That March I walked my first runway show and signed to Ben's agency Ben Barry Agency. At the end of 2013 Ben closed his doors to peruse teaching Diversity in Fashion as a Professor at Ryerson University Toronto. January 2014 I signed to B&M Models Toronto. Through my career I have enjoyed working for local day time tv shows such as The Marilyn Denis Show, Cityline, Steven & Chris, Breakfast Television, CTV Morning Show, CHCH morning Show and The Shopping Channel. My Clients have included Toni Plus, Pennington's, Addition Elle, Canadian Living, AlliStyle, Henkaa, Rent Frock Repeat, F3 Clothing and more.

The plus size industry is very small in Canada and print jobs and creatives are far and few between. I'm here to meet serious, talented people who are looking to create beautiful, high quality images for magazine submissions. If you would like to discuss a creative or test please feel free to email me at for a timely response.
