Before graduating in Auckland, New Zealand in 2003, I had already secured a position as a Skin Therapist at the flagship salon, Leonard Drake in Mosman, Sydney.
Focusing solely on facials, there was a great emphasis on extensive post graduate training, skin analysis and continuing education.
With a keen passion for my chosen field, I extended my knowledge past just the skin, investigating underlying issues, to confidently treat clients in a more informed and holistic manner.
I started my own business ‘The Facialist’ in 2004 and around this time I met fellow business owner, Sharon McGlinchey, owner of an Australian Organic Skincare brand, who introduced me to her beautiful techniques and how to really nurture the skin with a skin and body healing experience.
From here I continued learning by moving into the paramedical arena working with a plastic surgeon and providing all non invasive skin corrective treatments to beauty editors and VIP's. I became acquainted with technologies such as Fraxel, ELOS, Triniti, Derma-planing, Derma Rolling, Peels, etc.
For the next 11 years, I provided a Mobile Laser Service specialising in skin treatments such as Photo Rejuvenation, Hair Removal and Skin Tightening with ELOS Technology and worked alongside many Plastic Surgeons, Cosmetic Surgeons in Medi-Spas and salons across Sydney.
After taking some time out to become a mum, my direction changed, I had changed. I became aware of a shift in the industry towards slow beauty and the importance of skin nutrition. I went back to studying and focused on Gut Health and its importance in treatment difficult skin conditions. This has now become a main focus and protocol for treating the skin and in my treatments.
