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.
