About me
I started modelling at age 22 when I was approached by a local store in Toronto. From there I started working as a freelance model which lead me to Ben Barry when he was casting the models for Cheri Milaney's real women show at LG Fashion week. In 2009 I was cast to walk my first runway and signed to Ben's agency Ben Barry Agency. Since then 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 clients such as Toni Plus, Pennington's, Addition Elle, Canadian Living, AlliStyle and many more.

The past couple years have been a phenomenon in the plus size industry. Plus size fashion is becoming more and more on trend, designers are offering a broader range of sizes and society is loving it. The plus size industry is very small in Canada and print jobs are far and few between. I want to continue to perfect my craft and create images that speak to the majority of women. We are all beautiful. I hope to meet serious, talented people who are looking to create beautiful images.

Always willing to discuss creatives and tests.
