Beauty Therapy Teacher
As a professional beauty therapist I gained 7 years Industry experience in beauty salons, spa’s and self-employed. During my time working with others in the beauty industry I carried out various in house and external training. From this I decided to gain my teaching qualification and share my interest and passion with students who would like to enter the beauty industry. I am qualified in a range of treatments from nails, tanning, make up to more relaxing treatments such as massage and stone therapy. I enjoy carrying out treatments on close friends and family. Outside of teaching I spend time the rest of my time with my family which consists of my partner and 3 children, on days out, family holidays and with friends and family.
