Why did you choose the beauty profession? By accident really; I wanted to travel so thought cruise ships were the way to go and after investigating different roles and what qualifications were needed I decided to train as a Beauty Therapist (I didn’t fancy two years of cocktail school to learn how to make a few drinks!) I never did make it to the cruise ships but I certainly got to travel!

How long have you worked for k:SPA? From day 1.

How would you describe k:SPA? A very relaxed yet professional salon with excellent customer service. A place where you are taken care of and are always a priority, somewhere to experience top class treatments from around the world.

How would your clients describe you? Genuine, an expert, very gutsy.

What is your favourite treatment? It would have to be facials; if you are not happy with your skin it can affect you in so many ways. I love the fact that I have helped so many people achieve the best skin they can. To see confidence grow and return is a powerful thing.

What is your favourite Dermalogica product? Only one?! It would have to be Special Cleansing Gel – it’s the perfect all-round cleanser and I’ve been using it now for 18 years so it must be good!

What is your favourite pampering product? It has to be the Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Mind Bath and Shower Oil – it smells divine and because I can never turn my brain off about what new things to bring to k:SPA it helps me switch off and sleep better at night!

What is the best part of your day? First thing – who knows what the day will bring. It’s great to get the girls all organised and motivated so that they enjoy themselves at work too.

What’s your favourite colour? Instinctively I say red but right now I would have to say aqua is the colour of the moment.

What’s your favourite food? It has to be Italian – I am a pastaholic!

How do you spend your time off? What is time off?! I often spend time with family and friends which usually involves lots of eating and drinking. I also enjoy experiencing new treatments and visiting spas when I get the chance.

What would you do if you didn’t have to go to work? I would probably still do what I do; I love the industry and can’t imagine not working in it. Although I would probably have a lot more holidays in some very exotic locations!
