Brenda by day runs a local refrigeration company as the office manager.

It’s by night where she creates beautiful nails and masterpieces!
She is a mom to 4 adult children, who are off and running … taking on the world!!

She became a nail tech later in life (2010), initially as a way to earn extra income. Little did she know her talent (especially for art) would grow into a passion over the last 12 years. In 2018 she had enough of keeping her talent to her self and threw on an educator hat to share the swirls. (This gal can filigree like no ones business!)
For the love of new products and taking new classes, she is amazed how the industry has continued to grow and evolve.
Proper product application & structure is key, but the art is sneaking her language!!

For her clients she offers nail enhancements with gel and acrylgel. For all you future students of hers… just you wait to see what she brings to the table!!!
Oh did we mention she’s a killer martini mixologist!!

Maddie began her esthetics career in 2010 between years at university studying psychology.  Her passion quickly led to educator roles at multiple esthetics schools in Saskatoon. Although educating became a major part of her career, she always worked on the tools as well.

She feels educators need to be working with clients to better relate to students.

Teaching beginner nail technicians and writing curriculum is where her strengths lie, although she loves troubleshooting and shaping as well. She loves travelling for nail classes and meeting nail techs from all over the world. Being a part of NMC was an easy fit for this reason.

Her favourite part of the nail industry is the networking - you’ll find her sitting with other nail techs for hours discussing anything and everything nails. Her goals for the industry are to bring nail techs of all walks of life together. You could call her the social butterfly of the team :) 

While gel and Acrylgel are the main part of her business, Maddie also offers lash extensions, pedicures, waxing, lash lift and tints, permanent makeup, and microneedling.

Maddie lives in Saskatoon with her handsome hubby and two amazing kids. They make her life crazy and fulfilling all at the same time! If you find yourself in Saskatoon, shoot her a message and stop by for a visit!
