Kate...started her career in the nail and beauty industry in 2003 and set up a home salon soon afterwards. She completed her Grand Masters with CND in 2006 and in 2008 was promoted to become a CND Education Ambassador. Kate now runs the CND Gloucestershire Academy alongside her  nail and beauty studio. She teaches all CND classes as well as carrying out 1-2-1 training. During Kate's career she has had the good fortune of working at many exciting events, including London Fashion Week, make-over TV shows, photography shoots for editorial and glossy magazine articles. She also written articles for some leading nail magazines.

"As with many vocations, it is essential to maintain excellent professional standards, and I strongly believe that every one of us involved in this area must remain up to date with the latest techniques,  technology and knowledge of the products that we use on an every day basis".

It is also important that we understand the importance of feedback – I am a strong believer in constructive criticism, which allows us to improve and to develop our skills and techniques to another level – whether this be developing smile lines, blending a tip or improving painting techniques.

I love educating and inspiring students to fulfil their potential; but most of all I want to give others the opportunities, knowledge and confidence that I was fortunate enough to have been provided by my educator. We all have to start somewhere and the sky really is the limit!"
