First and foremost, Ashlee is a lucky Mom to her beautiful daughter Nadia (5) and son Luka (newborn), and wife to her loving and supportive husband Dimitri. Can’t forget our fur baby, Bruno, a 2 year old chocolate Lab :) Family is her number one priority and she loves spending time with them.
Ashlee grew up in small town Port Alberni, doing what many kids love; camping, fishing, going to the lake, and attending dance classes 3-4 days per week.
It was through the love of dance that Ashlee was introduced to stage makeup, and quickly fell in love.
Ashlee attended the prestigious Blanche Macdonald Institute in Vancouver, BC. After 8 months, (April 2006), she graduated from the esthetic & makeup program with top honors and has continued on to work at some of the most spectacular spas in BC:
The Tauca Lea Resort & Spa, Ucluelet, BC
The Willow Stream Spa at The Empress Hotel, Victoria, BC
The Grotto Spa at The Tigh-Na-Mara Resort, Parksville, BC
Having worked in many hotel and resort settings over the past 12 years, she has had the pleasure of working with brides every weekend, May through to September. It brings her great joy watching the transformation and seeing the reaction of an elated bride.
