I qualified as an ITEC & CIDESCO Beauty Therapist from the Coen Cantrell College Of Beauty Galway when I was 21 years old. I went immediately into the salon environment and went on to manage a couple of salons including one in Dublin. I later transitioned to working with premium brands such as Chanel, Lancome, Clarins, Shiseido & Smashbox and received a Lancome Accolade & a Smashbox Counter of the Year Achievement Award among others.
From there I took up a management role in Boots & that platform enabled me to manage other Independent Pharmacie Groups in Galway City & County. I currently work in the capacity of a Receptionist & I use the effective business communication skills & knowledge of this industry to provide the best customer service experience & to always endeavour to meet the needs of our Clients.
