I finished my beauty training in 1997 at High Peak College in Buxton before going on to work for a leisure company all over the UK, perfecting massage and relaxation treatments at pampering weekends.
Alongside that, I worked full time at The Nail and Beauty Studio, where I had extensive training in nails, nail art and extensions which I enjoyed very much and still do.
Then I came to work at Face Facts Buxton where my use and knowledge of other treatments were put to the test. I found I enjoyed having a varied schedule and had ongoing training in lots of new specialist areas.
My favourites, I trained as a Body Piercer in 1999, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Laser treatments in 2000 and have been fascinated by the skin and its care since been introduced to MD Formulation’s skincare now known as Priori/ Elizabeth Arden PRO and Guinot. The results on peoples skin and the difference I could make inspired me to enter the salon of excellence awards. My portfolio, built over 12 months WON me The Therapist of the Year Award and RUNNER UP in The Best Before and After. Winning 2 awards out of 6 in a National competition felt amazing and all for just doing my job!
In 2006 came the biggest compliment of all, thanks to Liz (former salon owner) as I became a partner in Face Facts, then together we opened Face Facts II in Bakewell and now I have sole responsibility in Buxton. I feel very passionate about my job and my treatments and feel very privileged to work with a very special team of therapists and receptionists, together making the clients and friends who choose to spend there precious time with us special.
