Tanya has over twenty years of experience being a professional esthetician with fourteen years’ experience mentoring employees, managing teams, training staff, and new graduates in an empowering environment. In particular, Tanya has extensive experience managing, leading, and developing new protocols and procedures to strengthen my industry, which has been rewarded by excellent staff retention and the accolades of being to be voted #1 Best of the City – Best Day Spa, 2019 &2018 and #1 Best of the City – Best Skin Care Clinic, 2021 & 2020.
Tanya found her calling in the spa industry through her lifelong passion for helping people. Over twenty years ago, her journey started by chance, when an esthetician and friend introduced her to the wellness industry. Perfecting her trade in the industry, in 2007 she ignited her entrepreneurial spark, and went into business for herself, two years of hard work performing mobile esthetics and working on her own paid off when she founded Emerald Day Spa – a place she describes as “a home away from home, where we support and empower women. We are more than just a spa; we are a community for employees and clients to be heard and appreciated.”
Throughout the years she has kept her business strong by executing its vision: to empower and help people. This involves providing long-lasting careers for her employees in our industry, it’s not just a “job” it’s a career that facilitates leadership and training for professional and personal growth.
Leveraging her vision, Tanya founded Women Empowered, a fundraiser to help raise money for women and children who have endured abuse. It is her passion to better herself and her circumstances to help everyone that comes into my life; whether it be through the spa or in my personal life. Tanya truly believes hard work, determination, drive, loyalty to her clients, employees, and the community, truly does pay off.
Besides developing a successful career, Tanya has taught at the Canadian School of Reflexology where she assisted in hands-on reflexology training for two years, teaching over 30 students. She has also completed my BeautySafe Certificate, PreEmpt Certificate, and COVID-19 Infection Prevention & Control Diploma. Her most important and rewarding project, however, has been growing a beautiful family.
