President & CEO
Meaghan is an Honours Graduate of Canada’s National Ballet School. She worked as a dancer and choreographer on various Cruise Ships and danced in New York and Los Angeles.
Settling in KW, Meaghan sought a vehicle where she could inspire young women.
Joining GEMINI Models in 2004 as a Model and later becoming a Modelling Instructor, she took ownership of the business in 2017.
Recognizing the challenges girls face growing up in a world of social media and high expectations, Meaghan further developed the current program to empower and inspire girls to see their beauty and strengths.
"I started THRIVE because I wanted to give the girls of KW the skills, strength and confidence to take on all of life’s challenges. It’s so important for youth today to be empowered in a positive way and to build strength and confidence because at some point in their lives they will be faced with a difficult or challenging situation. It is my passion to help girls see their potential, know their power and understand their value. "
Mikela, known to most as Kiki, joined GEMINI Models in 2014 as a Model and became an Academy Instructor in 2017.

Mikela has a passion for home design and organization, loves baking up a storm and has an ever-growing shoe collection.
Mikela's professional and personal goals of helping others reach their fullest potential aligned beautifully with that exact imitative of GEMINI. Working with young people, and as an extension - specifically young women, is a role Mikela truly cherishes.
Mikela believes The GEMINI Academy is a program that fosters creativity, self-expression and self-love while building confidence. The focus is on building the girls up and encouraging them to develop their independence. It’s so #girlpower focused. It’s women leading women, women supporting women, and women celebrating women. There's nothing else like it!
