Twenty two years ago I owned a couple of stores that featured aromatherapy and essential oils, my retail business ended up spawning into a wholesale distributorship, supplying hundreds of locations across North America. It was a crazy busy time; raising kids, managing stores, operating the warehouse, staffing etc., and phones were ringing off the hook. Eventually I closed the stores, the kids grew up and I sold the distribution company, but I didn’t sell my nose, or lose my desire to create aromatic concoctions.
Despite the fact that I swore up and down that I would never get back into the aroma industry again, I guess when you know something so well, and love it so much – it’s essentially a calling – right?
My passion for scent goes beyond the norm, and what I love about being an aroma bar tender is the ability to connect with people and whip up fragrant concoctions for their discerning noses. In essence, it is a form of art – and I love to share it.

April 9, 2015 was a Good Day – it was the day that I opened my Fragrant Gallery.
I envisioned a space filled with lovely aromatics paired with original art and other unique handcrafted goods. Welcome to my Fragrant Gallery.
