Born in London England to Punjabi parents, Amrit grew up in Western Canada, on the prairie plains of oil-rich Calgary in the majestic shadow of the Rocky Mountains. At a young age, Amrit began working as a cosmetologist in fashion shoots; a career move that first peaked her interest in the world of modeling.
Her first photoshoot as a professional model was with iconic Canadian photographer Raphael Mazzucco, whose photographs have appeared on the cover of three Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues, and in coffee table books for Victoria’s Secret and Sean Combs. Mazzucco has a signature style, photographing models very close-up, revealing all angles of their beauty. His talent has taken him around the world, shooting campaigns for Guess and Calvin Klein, featuring supermodels like Veronica Vařeková, Elle Macpherson, Rebecca Romijn, Rachel Hunter, Daniela Pestova, Elsa Benitez, Carolyn Murphy, and Yamila Diaz.
As much as Amrit loved her work in the fashion/beauty industry, she remained invested in her education and love of fitness. Amrit has several professional accreditations including Bachelor degrees in marketing and health sciences. She has worked as a radiographer in the health care industry and has drawn upon her years in medical sciences and education to become and expert in nutrition and health. She is a Certified Body Mind Nutritionist, Personal Trainer, a recognized voice in the wellness industry and frequent writer on issues of woman’s health and fitness.
