About Us

Hello!

Starting a Chemical Free Salon & Spa here in Blackfalds has been my dream come true. There was a strong need for quality salon & spa services in Blackfalds, and I am so blessed to have had this opportunity in this booming community. I am excited to share my knowledge with my clients, and to mentor and lead my staff to success. I am from Pictou, Nova Scotia, and was so very privileged to work in some of Halifax’s top-rated spas. From these adventures I have received top notch training and fully understand the importance of the “client experience” and the power behind “listening.” I truly hope each experience you have at Nurture is one of a kind.
