Who would have thought that a little girl who was bullied, lacked self confidence and walked like a duck would one day become an entrepreneur much less a Runway Coach. I still pinch myself and thank God knowing that I am the one who develops the walks of models who grace the runways for major brands like Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton!
My journey as a self-made Runway Coach began 18 years ago, when asked by my agent at the time to coach her new face models how to walk. I had absolutely no experience walking in heels much less training other models, but she believed in me and gave me the opportunity. I practiced, practiced, practiced until I developed a KILLER walk.
Fast forward to today. I am known as the Top Runway Coach in Toronto and have coached countless models. Best known for my ability to transform a model’s walk from basic to fierce. I take pride in knowing that not only are the model's walks transformed, but that their CONFIDENCE is as well. My coaching focuses on improving the model's self-esteem so they can in turn become more confident in all facets of their lives. This is why I created the philosophy "Be. Feel. Walk Confident.
I’ve developed a unique coaching style and keen eye for detail, which has empowered students to strut down runways in New York, Paris, Milan, London, Africa, Asia, and Toronto. I’ve worked with and perfected the walks of students who can be seen walking for designers such as Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Thom Browne, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, The Blonds and Mackage.
I believe a little support goes a long way. Having coached models from the start of their careers and continuing to coach them throughout provides them with the support and guidance they need. As a result, I’ve become a mentor to many of my students as well as aspiring models.
My passion and no-nonsense approach, has enabled me to hone my craft, establish rapport with my students and receive trust from numerous agencies, models, and industry members.
Now that you know a little bit about me, it’s your turn to share!
