Sales Co-ordinater and Field Support 

"I have always wanted to be in the beauty industry from a very young age. I trained in Beauty Therapy level 2 and 3 at Stanmore College and qualified in 2007. I then studied Business and Spa Management at the University of Hertfordshire. During this time I worked at Strip Wax Bar which is based in Central London for 5 years. I was a salon supervisor and visual merchandiser for all 5 locations. As well as this, I trained in HD brows. Strip is a specialist waxing salon who also sell high end lingerie as well as offering spray tanning, HD brows and laser hair removal. I then moved on to work for Dove Spa in Chiswick as Assistant Manager. I wanted to experience working in a spa environment and I was here for 1 year and a half. Alongside my time at Dove I also pursued my passion as a makeup artist and worked privately.
My friend Denica who works in the sales team at the iiaa had always known I had a keen interest in working for the iiaa and she let me know that there was a position in Customer Services. With this, came the role of Sales Co-ordinater & Field Support which involves booking all travel needs for every staff member on the road so it’s an intense role but I enjoy it and every day is different."

What is your desert island product?

"A, C & E Enhanced Oil, Glow Time® Full Coverage Mineral BB cream and Amazing Base® Loose Mineral Powder. I have seen a huge difference by using these 2 products. The oil is so hydrating and nourishing and it works a treat for anyone with problem skin. The Glow Time® Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream provides amazing coverage and allows my skin to breathe, I know that when I'm using it I'm not clogging up my pores. The Amazing Base® Loose Mineral Powder provides such a natural finish even without the Glow Time® Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and lasts all day."
