I am the founder of My Mink Lashes and Training Academy, MML on Johnson and Lollipop iLashes (Vancouver Island Lash Supply Co). I started my business over five years ago in Barrie, Ontario, as a home base Lash business. I moved to Victoria, BC, in January 2018 to live my dream of opening a Lash Bar storefront on Fort Street in downtown Victoria BC. The Doors to My Mink Lashes & Training Academy, Victoria opened in February 2018.
Since that time, we have opened a Beauty Bar MML on Johnson and a Lash Supply store Vancouver Island Lash Supply Co, both located on Lower Johnson Street, Victoria BC.
I am a Certified Educator through NALA (National Association Of Lash Artists) and a Certified Master Educator through Lash FX. I am a 2-time Nominated Lash Artist through NALA for 2019.

Enjoy our open-concept Lash Bar while relaxing in our cozy heated beds or get pampered in our beautiful Beauty Bar all the while listening to chill hip hop music.
I started Lollipop iLashes (Vancouver Island Lash Supply Co) out of a need to find the right products and supplies for our Lash Bars to use Being a Lash Artist I found the struggles of trying to find quality products to use and at prices that were fair. I believe with Lollipop iLashes, we have accomplished this by taking the stress and worry out of Lash Artists looking to find quality products to use in their Lash Studios. If you are just starting your Lash Journey or are trying to serve your clients with the best available products, I believe Lollipop iLashes offers you quality products and supplies at fair prices.
I welcome each and every one of you to come to My Mink Lashes & Training Academy and MML on Johnson to feel the real difference of feeling beautiful!!
