I qualified from Browyn Conroys in June 1988, worked in Dublin and London. On my return to Ireland I started my own business renting a room in a hairsalon, growing my business and clientele so much that it necessitated opening my own salon, which I ran sucessfully for 16 years with a team of 6. I have always kept myself up to date with training and refresher courses over the years ensuring to keep my salon current and being able to offer my clients what was in trend. I always enjoyed training my team on return from those courses and that stimulated my interest in teaching as I am keen to share the many skills I have mastered over the years. I believe that you never stop learning in the beauty industry, it is so fast changing and with every course I have ever attended I have always come away new skills. Over the last number of years I decided to work on my own providing treatments in every aspect of the beauty with my very loyal clientele and to concentrate on my teaching career.
