Having started my career at 17 I always knew I wanted to be in the Beauty industry. I have always had a passion for making people feel good and love learning new things. I love how even the smallest of treatments can transform a person. I started womankind in 2004 and as the business grew, my mum and I opened the Stockbridge salon in 2006. I have had a wonderful journey growing the salon and working and developing a phenomenal team of innovative professionals. We now collectively bring you expert top beauty services in a beautiful city salon designed to give you a non judgement space away from it all while you can unwind and be pampered. As My career matured my interests in anti ageing, skincare and non invasive aesthetics have become my speciality. I love working with clients to achieve their skin and body goals and my favourite treatments would have to be the Microneedling, Cryopen, hair removal and skin rejuvenation.

Now as salon manager, I look to drive the Salon to new heights and expand my skills in my job roll. I absolutely love my job, meeting new people and gaining amazing relationships with my colleagues. I would say now in my career, massage and waxing are my favourites. I’m learning new techniques with nails and am working to make my work stand out. I have two beautiful daughters who are my life and I am extremely proud to be a young mum. X
