July 2013 at the World Tuna Flat Races. This was my first official gig, which I had the lovely Mermaid Mimi with me for. She soon became my mentor, and began teaching me the tricks of the trade. It was at this gig that we decided that my mermaid career needed to go farther and we began discussing new tail ideas.
Near the end of December 2013 I auditioned for and became an official Halifax Mermaid! From there I worked many different events.
In May I introduced my boyfriend, Merwrangler Ryan into the business. He has been a great helper, a real natural!
Naida, Mimi, and I kicked off July by spending our Canada hanging out at Shore Things in Eastern Passage. I even ran into some people who I had met at DND Days weeks prior. I was absolutely floored by the crowds of people that came to see us; it was something I had never experienced before!
As many of you may know I am finishing up my last month here in Nova Scotia and with Halifax Mermaids. Don’t fret, you can still catch me at the Mahone Bay Pirate Festival, Fairview Family BBQ & Fair and Talahassee Days!
However this is not the end for me. I will be migrating up to St. John’s, Newfoundland and will be helping expand the company to Atlantic Mermaids. I am very excited to be part of this expansion and have great hopes that it will go swimmingly. The Halifax Mermaids will keep me busy when I’m home to visit! My mermaid journey does not end here. I am very excited to see what my new home will hold for me and am very thankful to have my Halifax Mermaids here to support me.
