Hello, my name is Angela I have been a fully qualified beauty/ complimentary therapist for over 20 years. I knew from school age that I wanted to pursue a career in beauty and complimentary therapies and I enrolled on a full-time beauty course in 1994 at 16 years of age. I have remained in the industry ever since.
On leaving college I gained employment immediately in a busy prestigious salon, it was here that I learned my trade from a wonderful lady that I am very grateful to as she taught me to the standard that I have worked by throughout my career.
At 21 years of age I decided to travel to Australia, where I spent 3 years working in the Spa industry. It was here I learned many different massage techniques, working alongside a host of experienced multi-cultural massage therapists who would happily share their techniques and knowledge. I realised then that massage and holistic therapies would be part of my life forever.
On returning to the UK in 2003 I soon opened my own salon, and it was here, when I started to train staff, I realised I also had a passion for training. In 2008 I started working in my current role as Beauty and Complimentary Therapies lecturer within a Further Education college.
Throughout the years I have gained a wealth of experience and knowledge in this ever-changing industry and it has been a great privilege to have been able to share my knowledge with others through my lecturing role in Further Education. I am now very much looking forward to the newest chapter of my journey working as a Tutor for Gateway Workshops as I believe the professionalism of the company is second to none.
I look forward to welcoming you on these wonderful courses very soon.
