Meet the Team
My journey into the Aesthetic world started back when I was 17 years old when studied on how the human body and skin function and what can go wrong with the systems and skin to lead to poor health and skin.
I became interested in the Beauty world so went onto train and work in the Beauty Industry. During this time, I also became interested in the holistic approach of how to treat the skin and body, alongside training in the new technologies at the time such as Electrolysis, and Micro-current therapies.
I gradually evolved into the Aesthetic world and learned about Laser treatments, Peels, Radiofrequency, and all other aspects of the Aesthetic world.
Having owned my own Beauty Business and working in a Management role with a Corporate Aesthetic company I gained a lot of knowledge and experience to be able to open my own Aesthetic clinics.
I have over 40 years' experience in the industry and continue to learn and evolve in this fast-growing sector. The clinics benefit from my years of business acumen and hands on experience which I can pass into my staff to help them to quickly gain more knowledge to the benefit of our clients.
I am constantly reviewing and looking at new treatments and therapies and keeping up to date with new trends in this market to stay ahead in this industry.
I have a bachelors degree in Biomedical sciences and starting my graduate entry into medicine.
