Year started at Kiyo:



Brow reshaping and extra cared for feet are super rewarding to me!

Why Kiyo?

It is well known in Nanaimo that Kiyomi is an excellent business owner. She’s big on continued education and runs a tight ship and I’m proud to be apart of her team!!

Why did you choose this industry?

My mom as a stylist for a short time back in the day and my auntie was an Aesthetician for a long time so I was influenced by them. It says in my grade 7 year book that I wanted to be an Aesthetician and I’m not sure I even really knew what it entailed.

What are your major accomplishments in life and business?

I don’t feel I’ve done anything spectacular but I’m proud to be living a life I love. I’m happy to have found a profession I’m passionate about.


Tru Spa, Lots of Dermalogica classes, Glo and Phytomer, HydraFacial MD, Dermaplaning, Cutera Laser (veins, skin, and hair removal)

What are your favourite activities/hobbies?

Lifting weights, anything outdoors, watching movies and shows on the couch in my pjs, board games and puzzles.

What would be impossible for you to give up?

Working in a job where I’m not stuck at a desk all day. Some form of physical activity everyday. Living near the ocean.
