CND Shellac CND Full Systems MoroccanTan

I joined the industry when I was only 15 working in my mams salon part time with the impression that I ‘didn’t want to do nails’. After a few months of watching my mam and the way she made clients feel, I was completely transformed. However still on the fence, whether or not this was the career for me, I attended college to complete my A Levels whilst working in the salon part time. During my A Levels I decided not to return and go to university instead focusing on the passion that had been lightened within me! 

From then I completed my first CND conversion course and knew that this was the brand, company and career for me! I have been amazed by the quality of education given and inspired to now go on and complete CND bootcamp 2019 and become a CND EA. I can’t wait to inspire and help all of my future students with anything they will need - for them to reach the ultimate goal in there careers. Whether it be a salon owner, or becoming an Education Ambassador I believe anything is possible if first you dream it, then work hard to get where you want to be! 

When I’m not teaching I work at my mams salon as now manager and I am proud to say we have an incredible team of 8 girls and have won The Best Salon in the North East! I think being in the salon among my clients and my peers helps me to be constantly inspired and up to date with the industry. We all have a passion for our career and it shows within our work - life is to short to do a job you hate and education is key to starting your new journey!
