“My Journey into beauty began in January 2010. I met with Carolyne on the 3rd January. She was very welcoming and friendly. I explained that I was interested in working on cruise ships eventually, and was delighted to hear that she had first hand experience in this, as she too worked on the ships at the beginning of her career.
I fell in love with the course and the industry straight away. There were only eight in our class, this small number allowed us to bond quickly and create a comfortable, relaxed learning environment. With each week our confidence grew. A few weeks into the course Carolyne informed me that there was a Level 3 course starting and it was possible for me to study Level 2 and Level 3 simultaneously. The decision did not take me long to make. Before long I was fast tracking myself onto the cruise ships!
I began working at The Beauty Lounge, Byfleet whilst I was still studying my Level 3 qualification.
Once I had completed my Level 3, I applied for a cruise ship. I was accepted upon interview and I completed an exciting 9 month contract working on board Royal Caribbean and Celebrity ships.
I am now back home and working with Carolyne at Omni. I am able to combine my previous skills in the media and my passion for beauty in one role. Since joining the team and managing the Marketing and PR for Omni, my role has developed and I am now a Company Director managing student liaisons and business development. I also maintain a small client base as a mobile therapist.”
