Meaghan Dietrich - President & CEO
meaghan@geminimodels.com

Entering her first year of business as the Owner, President and CEO of the Region’s largest Modelling Agency, Training Academy and Image Consultancy Firm, Meaghan brings an electric energy to her newly acquired role. When it comes to GEMINI, what Meaghan loves most is the family atmosphere. Meaghan will continue to hold in warm regard the emphasis on family. She will continue to extend that morale to all those who continue to come to GEMINI to better their self-esteem, confidence and self-image.  

Meaghan is an Honours Graduate of Canada’s National Ballet School. Her dance career allowed her to travel the world, experience new cultures and cultivate relationships with new people along the way. Throughout her dance career, Meaghan has worked as both a choreographer and dancer for various Cruise Ships. Meaghan will remain the Ballet Director at Dynamic Dance Force – a role she has cherished for many years. Whether it be in a dance or modelling studio, there is no doubt that she was born to teach and motivate others to reach their fullest potential. 

With a goal of building positive image and self-esteem in the students who attend the Modelling Academy, Meaghan utilizes modelling as a fun and interactive way to build confidence and a positive attitude. She is a firm believer that when girls feel confident and comfortable in their own skin, they make better life choices. Serving as the GEMINI Academy Director for several years allowed Meaghan the opportunity to inspire countless young women, helping them to learn self-love. Under Meaghan’s direction, GEMINI’s curriculum is unique to most in the business. The standard runway, fashion, poise, grooming, hair and make-up classes are complimented by healthy-living components addressing both fitness and mental health sectors respectively. Furthermore, Meaghan places a strong focus on the students building positive and supportive relationships with one another – ensuring their knowledge of the importance of positively supporting one another.

As the new Owner, Meaghan is both honoured and eager to carry on the GEMINI legacy. She is looking forward to working with and building relationships with local businesses to help them grow. Moreover, she looks forward to evolving to better suit the community as we take our place globally as the Silicon Valley of the North. Moving forward Meaghan’s goal is to maintain and build on the current initiatives of GEMINI.

If you were to ask Meaghan what she loves most about her job she would tell you it’s quite simple – “I get to help the next generation of girls realize their fullest potential, while connecting with diverse groups of people in our community – I feel beyond fortunate to have this role.” Meaghan will continue to build on the ideals of what GEMINI has emodied over the last 35 plus years, and will continue to fearlessly move GEMINI forward.
