Our Team


“Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life” Confucius.

 As a young girl, my fascination for creams, textures and scents was so great, that my mother allowed me to accompany her to her facial appointment at the beauty parlour. I developed an instant admiration for the beautician at hand, dressed in her elegant white outfit, I thought she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen; her scent was exquisite, there was so much grace in her. In her presence, I felt instantly soothed and in my element. I remember having just one thought in mind: I wanted to be just like her.

 I graduated with the diploma of beauty therapy at Victoria University in 2001 and it was not until 2006, with the desire to learn and travel, that I moved to Europe, and discovered the imaculate spa industry whilst working in Paris’s most prestigious spas of 5 star standards. Being bilingual enabled me to move to an international training role within the same company, and I was also often sent to luxury beauty events during the festive seasons on the French riviera.

These experiences opened up other avenues for my career and I accepted my first managerial role as head of a Parisian skin and body centre, which specialised in high-tech laser hair removal devices, body contouring solutions, and differing anti-ageing modalities.

In 2011, Life took me back to Melbourne, and soon after my daughter was born, I decided to broaden my knowledge by studying the bachelor of dermal sciences. This led me to gain insight into the cosmedic medecine industry, and working alongside various cosmedic physicians and surgeons in their facilities.

I feel incredibly grateful to have turned one of my passions into a 22-year career, practicing my skills with numerous cosmeceutical brands, working alongside and learning from incredible therapists and practitioners, which have enabled me to acquire the insight I now have about skin health.


My interest in skin grew from a young age, I was always fascinated by the beauty industry. I first started gaining experience by working at Mecca Cosmetica, and this led me to doing freelance makeup shortly after. I also knew I wanted a career in being of service to others, which is why I chose to study and complete my bachelors degree in psychology after high school.

But it was not until I met Mai for the first time in 2017, when I suffered from my own skin issues, that I found my true calling. Meeting Mai is the reason I changed my path from Psychology to now studying Dermal sciences.

Working alongside Mai at Skin To Heart is a privilege. Not only am I able to improve on my skills and knowledge through the constant support and teaching, but I am also able to fulfill my purpose, which is to help others be and feel  comfortable in their own skin, and so, with a holistic approach to health. Working together as a team, in order to help someone heal and feel more empowered, and build long lasting relationships, is what I love most about my role.

Because being part of the Skin To Heart family is NOT just a job, it is actually a lifestyle! By focusing on and getting curious about all pillars of health and wellness, the team and I find ourselves also constantly evolving on a personal level, and grow towards the best version of ourselves.

I love how Mai and I are absolute geeks and are inspired by science. We are fascinated by nutrition, wellness, healing, fitness, and basically by this incredible piece of machinery that is the human body.

My all time favorite is discovering how taking the correct supplements can affect the mind and skin in a positive way. If anyone could see me the notes section on my phone, they would see it is filled with notes about skin, supplements and nutrition. In the future, I hope to expand my knowledge on skin, and would also  like to go back to uni, to dive into the world of nutrition and natural therapies, because I believe the key to longevity is linked with these other avenues.


Ever since I was a little girl, I was always fascinated by the idea of beauty. I remember spending many hours playing pretend hairdressers on my mother's hair and was always on the hunt to trying new makeup looks on friends and my family.

I graduated from high school in 2020, enrolled in a bachelor in health science, and shortly after, swapped over to a graphic design course, neither of these seemed to catch my attention long enough.

But it was not until my sister Charleigh entered the beauty industry herself, and started her role at Skin To Heart, that I began to wonder if I too, could maybe find my place within this space. A year after Charleigh found her happy home alongside Mai, I was offered a very casual position to help around within the clinic, at that stage we had just come out of lock down and the team needed an extra pair of hands.

 When I started working with Mai, I felt out of my league as I did not have a lot of knowledge about skin or customer service. However now, all I want to do is learn more. When I get home from work, I love to read through the skin book I have created from all my notes about the skin, products, and supplementation.

Mai inspires me every day from the way she cares about her clients and their skin, to always ensuring her staff are happy and comfortable. Her ambition for Skin to Heart truly is mesmerising and I could not have asked for a better teacher and boss.

 When Skin to Heart transitioned from a skin clinic to a wellness clinic, I knew this was where I wanted to stay, because mental health and keeping the body healthy are topics I feel very passionate about. Helping to create a place where clients feel safe, relaxed and cared for is very fulfilling.

I begin my studies in Beauty Therapy at Victoria University this year, and I am so excited to widen my knowledge about skin and treatments.


Ever since I was a little girl, my passion for beauty has always burned brightly. Growing up, dance was my world, and I cherished the moments when my mother would do my hair and makeup for the annual dance concerts. It was like magic to see how she could enhance my natural beauty with just a few products and techniques. That early exposure ignited a spark inside me, fueling my interest in the beauty industry.

During high school, I had the incredible opportunity to work alongside a beauty therapist, which provided me with valuable insight into all aspects of beauty. It was during this time that I discovered my true calling for skincare. I have a wide range of interests and activities that bring me joy, from sharing meals with loved ones to going on leisurely walks or engaging in common hobbies. Being in the company of friends and family fills me with a sense of fulfillment and happiness.

Before joining Skin To Heart, meditation and mindfulness were not at the forefront of my mind. However, thanks to Mai, I have found solace and peace in practicing meditation. Taking moments of stillness and mindfulness has become an integral part of my daily life, helping me cultivate inner peace, reduce stress, and enhance my overall well-being.

Currently, I am pursuing my studies in Beauty Therapy at Victoria University, with plans to further specialize in dermal sciences. My goal is to become a Dermal Therapist, playing a crucial role in helping individuals feel comfortable in their own skin and achieve healthy, radiant complexions. I am driven by a deep desire to enhance the well-being and confidence of individuals throughout their skincare journeys.

Prior to joining the amazing team at Skin to Heart, I was already working in the beauty industry. However, I wanted to take the next step in my career and expand my knowledge. Skin to Heart felt like the perfect extension of my journey. Working here, I have been captivated by the clinic's unwavering morals, commitment to providing exceptional skincare services, and promoting overall well-being. Every day, I find inspiration in Mai and Charleigh, and I aspire to follow in their footsteps in the future.

Born and raised in the South of France, at a very young age I always had a passion and an eye for beauty. I started working in the beauty industry since the age of 17 and completed my higher education at a beauty collage in Avignon, France.

My young career started with acquiring the fundamentals working for a skin care & beauty clinic whilst balancing prospects of becoming a professional ballerina.

The depth of knowledge I possess within my industry has manifested itself through years of training and guidance amongst world class industry experts.

With strong ambition and an intense desire to master my abilities, I continued a long and extensive evolution in sharpening my skill. Honing in on brows and lashes, I wanted to specialise in Ombre brow cosmetic tattooing; of which I genuinely feel defines a person’s face.

I’ve had the pleasure of shadowing multiple leading experts in the industry and with more than 14 years of experience, I have curated my own signature craft. I’ve developed a tenacious passion in transforming the faces of my client’s bringing inspiration, joy and cadence.

Dr Theva

Dr Theva is an industry-leading anti-aging specialist who is passionate about his work and speaks regularly at seminars and conferences about his experiences.

Ever since I was a young boy, I wanted to become a doctor and contribute to people’s health and wellness. I wanted to make a difference in their lives.

I never liked seeing anyone unwell. I wished I could heal them all. In my own family, three of my close uncles died from massive heart attacks. I said to myself “why can’t anyone help these people and prevent their deaths?”

The desire to help others never left me as a child. Hence, I studied for 6 years to become a doctor and for twenty-one years, I practiced as a General Practitioner(GP). I have had a very successful practice in three different clinics, serving thousands of happy patients. Additionally, I was a GP educator for medical students and GP trainees, and an examiner for the General Practice professional examinations (FRACGP).
