In 2007, with three young children and a family still heavily involved in the hospitality industry, I decided it was time to fulfil a lifelong dream to train as a Beauty Therapist. As a youngster in NZ, there was no local beauty school, so I completed a full-time Secretarial course at my local Polytechnic instead.
I started my training at the College of Natural Therapies in Holgate NSW with Remedial Massage, Reiki and, the following year, moved on to the beauty course. Beauty Therapy is very Science-based, and I enjoyed the aromatherapy training (both massage and oils).
This course ignited a passion for all things natural and opened up a whole new world of learning. I especially enjoy assisting people with different skin issues through more natural means. This training has to lead to me creating a range of products that are all SLS, Paraben and Palm Oil Free. It is Animal Friendly, Vegan and has recyclable packaging.
I genuinely believe that what is absorbed into our skin affects our health, so with that in mind, it's always better to try and use more natural products, where possible. My range of products is currently available online and at various markets and events on the Central Coast, Newcastle and sometimes in Sydney.
