A career highlight: Winning my very first Contessa Award. It was a dream come true and I will remember the moment for the rest of my life. I had been competing for years and been a finalist many times, but this was my first win — in fact, that night I won twice: Alberta Stylist of the Year and Multicultural Stylist of the Year. Words cannot describe the feeling.
