A little bit about my spa journey...
I started my Spa Consultancy business in August 2014 and I now provide spa expertise and guidance for both UK and International clients who are either planning to design, build and open a new spa or for existing spa operators who need assistance to improve their spa’s performance and profitability.
I began my career at grassroots level as a beauty therapist at Stobo Castle Health Spa in Scotland and since then I have opened and managed a wide variety of spas, from high end Luxury Hotel Spas such as St David’s Hotel & Spa and Mandarin Oriental Miami/London; to Cruise Liner and resort spas, such as the renowned Champneys Spa in Tring and Day Spas including the biggest in the UK, Sanctuary Spa.
Prior to launching my consultancy business in 2014, I was the Regional Spa Director for EMEA at Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group looking after both new builds and existing Mandarin Oriental Spas in the EMEA region. Prior to this, I held the position of Group Spa Director for Sanctuary Spa, where I was responsible for the iconic Covent Garden Day Spa with more than 63,000 visitors annually.
As well as operational control, I was also responsible for the strategic planning and capital projects for both the spa at Covent Garden and three new ‘City Spas’ that were rolled out for the Sanctuary Group.
