Hi all and thank you for coming to join me lol!
I just thought I’d introduce myself to you all so you know a little bit about me and hopefully you come and join me on my journey through life:
I am a Spa Management student who has just completed her first year at university who desires to break into the industry and would also like to go mobile. I have had loads of work experience in all different fields over the years including hospitality, health and social care, and property. I even launched a business a couple years ago, prematurely, if I’m being honest with you. In hindsight, I wasn’t fully prepared, so initially I went to university to study Business Enterprise but I found it very “dry” for me so I transferred my degree to the one I’m on now and absolutely love it!
During this summer, I am doing a paid 10 week internship with Project Brum via Birmingham City Council to help promote health, fitness and wellbeing around Birmingham. This will be good for me as health and fitness complements the treatments that we provide within a spa environment. I am also doing an intensive course for me to complete my Level 2 and Level 3 in Beauty Therapy via The Training Room alongside my internship separately for 12 weeks. I invested in this in order to improve my employability. Going into the industry as a “mature” non therapist is difficult as you are required to have a Level 3 even as a Spa Receptionist. So I thought this may help me find a job within a spa setting so I can see first hand how they are run, and also so I don’t lose my skills.
On a personal note, I’m a 33 year old mother to an amazing 14 year old son who was diagnosed with Aspergers in 2015 and we have been fighting with the school to have him supported how he should. Horrible feeling when other people don’t love and care for your child like you do. Single at present and very busy but I make time for whatever and whoever I feel is important. Currently working on my fitness and enjoying my life as much as possible no matter what the circumstance.
Now you know me, I want to get to know you too. Feel free to share your stories with me and one another. We can inspire each other.
Forever learning and evolving,
