As an aesthetician, she leads the way in offering a range of safe, results-led treatments and is a faculty member of the Aesthetic Complications Expert Group, an international body advocating for improved safety in the industry.
During her nearly three decades working in health and medicine, she has developed a particular interest in issues affecting women as they age, especially menopause, skincare and nutrition.
“I’ve noticed those who make healthy choices have fewer physical and mental health problems. As a result, they also tend to look younger and lead happier, more productive lives. Whatever challenges you face, looking after yourself will help you deal with what life throws at you ... and look amazing in the process!”
