Q: Tell us something interesting that most people don’t know about you.
A: There is something unique that sets me apart from others, which is my unwavering faith in God. I prioritise putting God first in my life. My relationship with God is something that I cherish and rely on, and I cannot imagine living my life without His presence and guidance. I believe that my faith has helped shape me into the person I am today, and it is a source of strength and comfort during both good times and difficult ones. It has taught me the value of kindness, empathy and forgiveness, and has inspired me to strive for personal growth and self-improvement.
Another intriguing fact about me is that I happen to be dyslexic, an aspect of my life that has shaped my journey with its unique challenges and strengths.
Q: What inspires you?
A: As a medical Aesthetician and a business owner, what inspires me most is the ability to help people feel confident and beautiful in their own skin. Seeing the positive impact that our treatments have on our clients, both physically and emotionally, is truly fulfilling and motivating. In addition, I find inspiration in the ever-evolving field of medical aesthetics. There is always new technology, techniques and products emerging which keeps us on our toes and pushes us to stay up to date and innovative in our approach.
Finally, as a business owner I am inspired by the opportunity to create a welcoming and supportive workplace for my team, where they can thrive and grow. Being able to mentor and empower others to reach their full potential is incredibly rewarding and motivating.
Q: What do you find most challenging about work?
A: While it is rewarding to help people feel confident and beautiful in their own skin, it is also emotionally challenging to work with clients who are struggling with their appearance or self- esteem. As a medical aesthetician, it is important to be empathetic and supportive while also maintaining professional boundaries and ensuring that clients receive the best possible care.
Q: Who are your favourite people in the world?
A: I am filled with immense gratitude for the incredible individuals who form the bedrock of my life. At the very core of my heart are the beloved members of my family who have brought unparalleled joy, love, and support to me.
My parents and siblings hold an irreplaceable place in my heart. They have been there for me since the beginning, nurturing and shaping me into the person I am today. From their unwavering guidance to the countless cherished memories we've created together.
Alongside my immediate family, I am blessed to have a remarkable partner in life, my husband. He is my rock, my confidant, and my greatest cheerleader. Together, we have built a strong and enduring partnership founded on mutual respect, shared values, and a deep commitment to one another's growth and happiness.
And Oh My children! They are the embodiment of pure joy and unconditional love. Watching them grow, learn, and experience the wonders of life is a constant source of inspiration and fulfilment. Their laughter, innocence, and unique perspectives bring light into every corner of my world.
Q: If you were to change something about yourself what would it be?
A: If I were to change something about myself, I would love to have really long silk hair. Apparently my second son inherited all the hair genes.
Q: Tell us about the happiest time in your life
A: For me, happiness is not confined to a singular moment in time, but rather, a continuous and evolving experience that I share with my family and team. Every day presents new opportunities for joy and fulfilment. However, one particular moment holds a special place in my heart: the blissful experience of my children peacefully falling asleep in my arms. It is a serene and magical moment that fills me with immense happiness and love. It's a treasure I eagerly anticipate and one that I will forever cherish.
Q: What would you like to be remembered for?
A: I would like people to remember me for the exceptional level of care and service that I provide for my clients. I am passionate about helping people feel confident and beautiful in their skin and I believe it comes through personalised attention and care that I provide to each and every client. I would also like to be remembered as a leader who prioritises the growth and development of her team.
