Daniela Hofmann

2019 Vaughan Honouree

Daniela Hofmann, owner of Freedom Medi Spa since 2004, has been in the medical esthetics field for over twenty years. She has trained physicians, dermatologists, spa owners, and their teams on various laser treatments across Canada. She has also taught at Seneca College in their esthetics program. Daniela and her team at Freedom Medi Spa love seeing how their services contribute to their clients’ well-being and confidence.

Daniela truly appreciates the community she is surrounded with and is always looking for ways to pay it forward. She considers herself very blessed and recognizes that not everyone has the same opportunities nor the same support system.

Daniela helps those in need through financial contributions and gifts of spa services, fundraising for much-needed resources and lifting spirits through in-kind donations. She has contributed to organizations such as Sick Kids, New Haven Learning Center, and Elspeth Heyworth Centre for Women, and to campaigns supporting Waves of Changes for Autism, Canneto Society, Kids Help Phone, Lupus, and the Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Another cause and charity close to Daniela’s heart is The Nanny Angel Network, where trained volunteers go into people's homes to help moms who have cancer. They assist with childcare to give mom time for an appointment or a chance to rest. They also provide support to families throughout treatment, recovery, palliative care, and bereavement. Being a busy mom herself, and having seen family and friends succumb to cancer, this organization really speaks to Daniela, as well as many of her clients and team members at Freedom Medi Spa. Beginning in January 2019, Daniela spearheaded a new program called Angels Among U, to support the work of NAN, where one volunteer is recognized each month and treated to a signature 90-minute facial, focusing on complete relaxation. She believes these volunteers are incredible and deserve to be acknowledged in a special way.

Daniela recalls other favourite memories of giving back, from organizing a Play Day family picnic for her clients, as well as an awesome fashion show to raise funds and awareness for York Central Hospital (now Mackenzie Health). Another memorable one was the annual 60 km Walk to End Women's Cancers with Princess Margaret Hospital, which she and her team participated in for seven years.

When Daniela sees someone in need, she naturally thinks about ways she can help. She believes it's just the right thing to do. We all have moments in our lives that are dark and full of sadness, but we also have stories of those who were there for us. Those who chose to help. Those who made us smile and reminded us that life can be wonderful.
