Jodie D Trainer iiaaTraining Centre: London
"I studied beauty therapy for 2 years at Bridgend Collage, South Wales when I was 16 years old – I always knew that I loved beauty and that this was the industry I wanted to be in.

Once qualified I then got a job at a local salon as therapist, and this is where I got to discover Advanced Nutrition Programme™, Environ® and  jane iredale and that's how my love for the three brands grew.  

After 3 years of working at my local salon, I was given the opportunity to move abroad to Egypt to embark on a new adventure – whilst in Egypt I had the role of a teacher’s assistant for a private school where I got to teach children aged 4-5. This really sparked a new passion, I just loved teaching, and found it so rewarding! However, I really missed being in beauty. 

After 2 years, I moved to London and got a job at a boutique salon in the heart of Mayfair and worked my way up to assistant manager where I took it upon myself to train any new  employees and share my knowledge and passion with the team. This is where I was in my element, I was able to do the two things i loved most, training and beauty! 

When I saw that there was a job advertised at iiaa I was over the moon, having worked with the 3 brands previously I already knew this was my dream job,  for a dream company!

I feel so lucky to work for such an amazing company and I’ve always believed in the philosophy of FEED, FORTIFY, FINISH™"  

What inspires you to train?

"I believe that there is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone grow and develop from the knowledge you have given them. 

How amazing is it to play such a big part in someone’s career! 

I love the stories I hear from therapist about how the three brands have not only changed their skin, but changed their clients lives too, this inspires me!"

What is your desert island product?

"I love them all! – it’s impossible to choose just one. 

But I definitely cannot live without my Skin Accumax™ ( it has transformed my skin!)   And given me amazing results.  

I also love Hydroxy Acid Sebu-Lac Lotion, it gives you the most amazing glow and your skin just feels amazing. 

And finally, I won’t go a day without applying my jane iredale GlowTime® Mineral BB Cream, its so silky and gives you the most amazing radiant glow as well as having an SPF25!"
