Amanda

What inspired you to pursue a career in the beauty industry? 

I have always had a fascination with skin. But it took me a while to realise I could have a career working with it. I studied business and worked in accounts for some time until deciding to make a career change when I was 25. I have never looked back. I now have the joy of mixing both of my passions, skin and business.

Camping! I love to pack the family up in our little caravan and go to the beach.
