Obsessed with hair colour since the age of 14, salon life has long been Autumn’s fantasy job. Her life & career went in a very different direction, where Autumn worked in human resources and business management for nearly 20 years with manufacturing and public sector organizations.
When Autumn first moved to Nanaimo in 2016, she was looking for a Kevin Murphy salon and called VHL, but booked her colour elsewhere before we got back to her a few days later (ironic since she’s now the one who answers calls and helps new clients match up with their perfect stylist). A few weeks later she booked a blowout at VHL when she couldn’t find her flat iron in the moving boxes, had a job interview & was still negotiating with her hair about how to deal with Island humidity. Autumn landed in Sarah’s chair and they hit it off immediately, making her a loyal VHL client ever since.
As things go when they’re meant to be, a casual conversation with Sabrina during a hair service months before led to a coffee with Angie, which led to Autumn becoming our Salon Coordinator in the Spring of 2020. With Autumn’s background in business administration, she helps keep things running smoothly both at the front and behind the scenes.
Autumn lives in a frat house with her husband, two t(w)eenage sons and male dog. She loves the Pacific Ocean, podcasts and gelato.
