Submitted What nominators are saying
69 days ago I am so glad that Hailey took the step to open her own wellness spa! Her services are professional and affordable. Her shop is clean and comfortable. It is a welcomed addition to the shops and services provided in Prince Rupert.
77 days ago Hekate Esthetics is a professional day spa that is owned and operated by Hailey Orleans, a life long Port Edward and Prince Rupert resident. Her business includes professional skin and body care services. Hailey used to be a manager at the Crest Hotel and decided to go to school during 2018 to follow her passions. Upon returning, she didn't miss a beat and opened the doors to her new spa at the end of January 2019. Within less than a year, Hekate Esthetics has quickly grown into a business that serves over 550 clients, and is contributing to new life in the downtown core on 3rd Avenue. Hailey works 12 hours a day, 5 days a week, and is the type of person who wouldn't normally participate in an award process - so I decided to nominate her to recognize her hard work and the outstanding success of her new downtown business. Already Hailey has achieved a high capacity of clientele, and has additional plans to expand her spa operations and also hire additional employees - contributing to the up and coming service industry in Prince Rupert. She also has aspirations to volunteer at the seniors center and the local woman's shelter once she is able to hire additional help. With that being said, I believe Hailey's business is a true Rupert success story and it would be wonderful to see her nominated for Rookie Business of the Year!
