Runhildr Zaetl

Runhildr Zaetl (she/her/hers) is a certified electrologist living with her partner in Calgary, Alberta. In her free time, Runhildr loves hiking in the mountains, nerding out with video games and comic book movies, creating EDM tracks, and is a passionate writer of fantasy, science-fiction, and horror stories.

In 2020, Runhildr decided to start her own electrolysis business after having been laid off from her position as IT manager for an oil and gas company the year before. She mentored under one of Alberta's most skilled electrologists, and then took and completed the Electrolysis course at the Esthetics Institute Training Centre in Calgary. Though the pandemic slowed everything to a crawl, through dedication and perseverance Runhildr finally opened Zaetl Electrolysis in March 2021.

As a queer, pan, trans lady, Runhildr is a member of the LGBTQ+ community and is committed to having a safe space where anyone can be themselves.
