What do you miss most about being a youngster?

The lack of worry and care free approach to life. The most you had to worry about was who you were going to play with each day.

What part of your job do you enjoy the most?

Teaching learners something they don’t know, finding ways to help them learn and retain knowledge.

What is one of your favourite quotes?

Love many, trust a few but always paddle your own canoe.

One Thing Students Won't Know About Me...

 I am trained in music.

Experience

I have always wanted to work within a salon environment all my life. Teaching was a good progression and I was approached to take on some hours, I enjoyed it and this is where I stayed on a permanent, full time basis. 

I would always encourage learners into teaching but only once they have had had some trade experience under their belt. I feel, your experience and the ability to draw back on those experiences are what helps the students to learn.
