As the owner of Biotouch Alberta and a three-time winner of the Calgary Herald Readers’ Choice Gold Award, Kim is passionate about providing personalized makeup treatment and aesthetic services to men and women in Calgary and its surrounding areas. Kim was proudly partnered with Merle Norman Richmond Square for several years.
She began her career as a cosmetic professional over 30 years ago when she earned her US-trained nail technology certification. Kim has built a loyal clientele using her talent for nail art and focus on customer service. After developing her skills, she won two consecutive gold medals at the ABA Nail Competition in 1987 and 1988. Upon realizing that she needed to give her established clientele a new level of service, Kim opened Phamtastic Nails & Spa (eventually growing to five different locations throughout the area), and then started the Nails Academy under Alberta Learning in 2003.
Kim quickly realized that there was a tremendous need for cosmetic treatments and she needed to create a business catered to these specific requirements. In 2004, Kim opened and operated Biotouch Alberta, bringing more focus to permanent makeup and skincare aesthetics, including an educational training facility. After selling Phamtastic Nail & Spa, Kim opened Biotouch Alberta, which has been a successful hub for men and women seeking beauty and medical cosmetic treatments.
