I qualified as a beauty therapist in 2001. I went on to gain further qualifications in core knowledge in ipl hair removal and skin rejuvenation laser therapy. I specialise in application of semi-permanent individual lash extensions. I also carry out many beauty treatments such as waxing, different types of pedicures, manicures, therapeutic massage, facials, and the application of shellac nail varnish.
I am grateful to be part of the Basildon podiatry practice and have gained a great deal of knowledge into the needs of the patients that are referred to me for pedicures by sushila and her team.
As we see patients/clients with different nail and skin conditions I am guided and work with Sushila to bring about a management plan to include beauty treatments to suit the individual’s needs. I use nail varnishes and nail treatments that have been developed by and endorsed by podiatrists. I find that clients return to me as they like being in a clinic setting whereby their pedicures and manicures are carried out in a private treatment room.
I am acutely aware now of the need to prevent cross infection and cross contamination and have been able to learn the infection control protocols from sushila.
The pandemic was challenging and terribly disheartening for me as I was unable to work for almost 1 year. I am grateful to be back and look forward to seeing my regular clients and new clients as well.
I love being part of the Basildon team and especially like the fact that some of the patients who come in for medical foot care can then complete their treatment with a cosmetic and therapeutic treatment, so they go out with pretty feet that feel amazing.
My hobbies are travelling, I love the beach and I enjoy reading and spending time with my family and friends.
