About Me

Welcome to my profile!

I have always had a passion for modeling and I am looking to expand my experience in this industry.

Read my bio;

I am Miss Earth Calgary 2008 and I was Miss Calgary 2006. I have competed in many national pageants. I just finished competing in the Miss Universe Canada Pageant & Rose of Tralee Western Canada.  (For more info on my pageant experience scroll down to bottom of my profile).

I am currently working as a Freelance Event Coordinator, as well as being the Marketing and Donations Director for Kensington Fitness Studio. I am also a Fashion Show Coordinator and Pageant Director. I frequently coordinate fashions for The Bay Southcenter and I run the Miss Sun & Salsa Pageant & Miss Earth Calgary Pageant.

I do most of this through my company Canadian Beauties - Event & Model Management. (If you need models for a project, please contact me through Please also feel free to view my website;

My schedule is somewhat flexible and can almost always accommodate any paid shoots. (Paid shoots will always be given priority) However I am currently looking to expand my portfolio and will do TFP or TFCD shoots that are creative and will produced high quality shots. With that said, I am really looking for shoots that are out of the ordinary with talented photographers. I have learned from my experience on MM that not all shoots are beneficial and I want to make sure that both of us end up with a product that we are happy with.

I am open to all ideas – except nude photography

I am looking to do the following shoots;

Extreme Close Ups (Lips & Eyes)
Christmas Shoot
Black and White
Commercial Looks
Anything Creative
A Body Painting Mural on my back
Paid Stock Photography
Anything with great photo shop editing
(Please look at my photo list that shows shots/theme I would like to re-create)

I can do my own hair and makeup but I am looking to work with MUA’s, hair stylists and wardrobe stylists. If you supply hair & makeup I am more likely to do a TFP shoot.

My Experience

Modeling and Acting courses
12+ years experience in the industry
35+ photo shoots with many different photographers (all different experience levels)
100+ fashion & hair shows
Experienced hostess/promo model

For more details on my modeling experience you can request my modeling resume.
