I’ve always felt a strong attraction to the beauty industry, even as a small girl. During my teens and up to my mid-thirties, I struggled with acne, scarring, and pigmentation. When I decided to enroll in esthetic school in my late thirties, I wanted to learn all I could to have beautiful skin and help as many other’s who wanted the same. My journey included taking extra courses, amongst them the Pastiche Advanced Skin Analysis plus many extended training courses. After graduating from esthetic school with honors, I was determined to take everything I had learned and start my dream business.
The look and feel of Temple of Beauty were originally inspired by a trip I took for my 40th to Bali, Indonesia. I instantly fell in love with their natural lush decor and their simple yet elegant way of treating others. After this trip, my dream was alive with passion and enthusiasm. The name “Temple of Beauty” along with its branding, was a reflection of how I saw the feminine and it started to open in me my own growth and awareness as a woman.
Starting my business with no money, no clients and no business experience, I set out on my journey to learn all I could in building my dream. I took many courses, hired many individuals and coaches to show me the way, stumbling many times. Through my determination and tenacity, I grew Temple of Beauty into a 6-figure business in my 4th year. I was willing to do whatever it took to make it happen.
When choosing a skincare line for Temple of Beauty, three words helped me to find and decide on Dermaviduals:
- Purity – of ingredients
- Integrity – within the company and formulators!
- Results – in our skin issues!
A tall order to find all three in a skincare line but one I wasn’t willing to compromise.
In my 16th year, I moved Temple of Beauty from my home to a commercial space in downtown St. Albert. I rebranded and niched into a facial boutique, with the decision to specialize inspired by my own passion to have beautiful skin.
I have been blessed to be able to live my passion, have the most amazing clientele and staff over the years. Thank you all for your support and I look forward to celebrating together for our 18th Anniversary Celebration on April 14.
