She offers a warm and welcoming environment, making sure you are heard. She listens to the body to make every treatment tailored to her client’s needs every time they are on her table.

Adrienne was born on Canada’s west coast, but has spent the majority of her life right here in St. Albert.

In 2008 Adrienne completed her Bachelor of Science at the University of Alberta majoring in Biological Sciences and minoring in Sociology. In 2014 she achieved her Laser Technician certification from the Cosmetic Laser Institute and has been at Off the Hook Laser and Spa ever since.

She hated turning clients away when they weren’t candidates for laser hair removal, so in 2017 she was bound and determined to learn the art of electrolysis. Her passion is hair removal and her work days are usually spent using one of our top laser or electrolysis machines. She strives to design the best treatment approach for each individual client, sometimes using a combination of both techniques to achieve the best results.
