The Creative Team

Runway Coach/Choregrapher
I absolutely love coaching runway! I love seeing confidence grow in others and see them letting their personalities come out and shine. I believe confidence is one of the best things to learn, and I've seen people from all ages benefit from being given a few skills and techniques in this area. Learning to walk and hold yourself with poise and grace is not just for those who want to pursue modelling, some of my favourite sessons have been one on ones with individuals who want to learn these types of skills to help improve other parts of their lives or just for fun!
