I've had a connection with the beauty industry from a young age; doing friends’ make-up for our high school concerts and drama productions. I just saw it as something I enjoyed, but not a career path. After having my daughter, I needed to change my career to balance my lifestyle. I saw an advert for a beauty course and thought, hey why not? This was the early 90s and the industry was seen as a luxury commodity. It was a game changer for me. I couldn't believe how much I loved it and I worked as a part-time therapist in a salon and a part-time mobile therapist for 5 years.
I was having so much fun and wanted to share with others how they too could embark on a journey in the industry so I became a trainer for the International Institute and Dermalogica. That was fantastic, the amount of knowledge I gained was phenomenal. From that I then went on to become an FE Beauty Lecturer. After 8 years of moulding young minds, I decided to further my commercial skills by returning to industry and became a trainer for the Von Essen spa group and then UK Area Training Manager for Blink Brow Bar retail chain.
After 6 years of doing that, I realised that I now had the confidence to start my own business 'Beauty On The Go', doing the things I love the most. This is by far the most epic part of my journey to date, a combination of treatments and training. Sharing knowledge and experience for the benefit of both clients and future therapists.
