About Me

As a specialist in skin care and make-up since 1987, I completed my training as an Aesthetician in 2001; as well as, a Bachelors Degree in Health Sciences in Podology in 2017.

I was born and raised in Montreal and eventually moved to Ottawa prior to my teen years.  As a youth, I was trained in skin care analysis and make-up artistry, specializing in home parties, weddings and formal events.

An opportunity arose for me to study abroad in Switzerland for three years.  Upon returning home to Ottawa I graduated from college with a diploma in Child and Youth Counselling.  The fifteen years I spent working with these teenagers was very rewarding, but I was looking for a new adventure.  I decided to return to my roots, and become an Aesthetician.

Practicing Aesthetics in various salons and spas for over ten years, both in Canada and in the USA, I decided it was time to open my own Studio.

Keep In Touch Studio is now in its tenth year and growing steadily.  I look forward to many more years of providing specialized aesthetic services for my existing and new clients.

My focus has always been to educate my clients with every service that I provide, which is why I frequently take courses, seminars and webinars to stay current in the industry. If you are looking for an Aesthetician with the knowledge to care of your skin, feet, and nails then look no further!

I have been going to see Wendy for about 8 months now to have waxing done.  She is very professional and it is virtually pain free.  She offers great advice for any problem areas and the Yonka products have proven quite effective and beneficial. I recommend Wendy to anyone who needs her services.  The waiting area and her work area are always neat and it has a very relaxing atmosphere.  Also – quick side note – I am handicapped and since this is all on one level and very easy to access I have no issues manoeuvring around.

Walking into Keep In Touch Studio with its beautiful interior design is relaxing in itself. Wendy then appears with a warm, smiling demeanour. Whatever treatment you choose, you will be happy with the results. Whether it be Indian Head Massage or a facial, you will walk away feeling like everything is right in your world. Thanks Wendy for creating such a lovely experience.

“I was referred to Wendy by a friend, and was — admittedly — hesitant at first. After all, I don’t let just anyone do my toes! As a diabetic, my feet must be cared for meticulously…. So I was THRILLED when on my first visit to visit Keep In Touch Wendy showed such care, concern and knowledge of my condition. And the cleanliness of the Studio and all of her tools knocked me socks off too — pun intended! I’ve returned many times since and will return again and again.”


At keep in touch studios I really feel like I’m in a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Wendy also has a calm energy to her. She sincerely cares about our body’s well being and is exceptional with her services. I will see no one else but her and highly recommend her! Plus I love the Yonka facial products I don’t use anything else since I I learned about them.

I am very selective when it comes to spa services and have had nightmare experiences in the past from other salons, but I had heard great things about Wendy @ Keep in Touch – so I decided to book an appointment with her for Xtreme Lash extensions prior to a major event.
Wendy and her staff were very welcoming and friendly, and the studio itself is lovely. I immediately felt calm and relaxed, and knew that I was in good hands. I left the salon shortly afterwards well rested, and with the most gorgeous lashes. The lashes lasted for quite a long time, and they looked and felt natural. I also really liked that Wendy was very specific about care instructions, and that the salon carried eye makeup that could be used safely with the extensions – so I didn’t need to run any extra errands. I loved the service at the studio so much that I’m going back again for my wedding!

I have been coming to Keep in Touch for the last two years or so, and I received a number of different treatments from Wendy. Wendy’s knowledge, professionalism and experience keeps me in tip top shape and keeps me looking my best. I have never had such great looking skin in my life and I owe it all to Wendy and her expertise. The Studio is filled with great products and gift ideas, I just want to try them all! Highly recommended!

I was getting massage therapy on my arm at a massage-aesthetics studio on Cardigan Street in Guelph.  I was introduced to Wendy Owens who is in the aesthetics business and asked her if she could do anything with my damaged toes (from running) and we set up an appointment.   Excellent results and I will soon be going back for a second session to ensure my toes and sandals compliment each other.

It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Wendy and Keep In Touch Studios. Over the last few years I have used her services for manicures, pedicures, Indian Head Massages, Eye Brow Waxing, gift certificates and much more. When you leave her studio you feel like a new person, so totally relaxed. Wendy also did a fabulous job of doing make-up for the wedding party of daughter’s wedding. I would highly recommend Wendy to all my family, friends and colleagues. Thanks Wendy.

Using Yon-Ka has changed my winter complexion, which used to be dry and flakey, much to my chagrin. I had resigned myself to it after trying various products, but Yon-Ka really did the trick. I love using Yon-Ka’s skin care formulations especially because they’re not tested on animals, which is a must for me in a cosmetic product. Beyond that, they use pure essential oils which smell fantastic but not heavily perfume-y. I know from my experience using essential oils on my massage clients that most people who can normally only tolerate unscented products have no trouble with using these high quality plant oils. Yon-Ka products leave my skin feeling wonderful and looking great.
