I help Solo Salon owners & Educators make more money through Training. 

I help solo salon owners make more money through creating a training academy and help solo educators make more money from their training academy. 

I have been in the industry for 25 years, starting out in Salon and Spa’s and entering teaching in Further Education very early on. My FE teaching career spans 14 years, in that time I taught, managed programs and teams across Level 2 and Level 3 Beauty Therapy. Guest taught across Level 2 and Level 3 Nail Services, BTEC, ITEC and Holistic programs. I was part of the quality assurance process acting as an internal quality assurance verifier both for the college and private institutions.    

I have been the owner of Metis Beauty Academy since 2013/4, running both as a VTCT centre and Accredited course provider.  I openly admit, it was a tough start stepping out on my own, even with my vast teaching experience and Foundation Degree in Business Management, tough lessons were learnt from many mistakes along the way, but I have built a reputable Training Academy that runs on word of mouth and return custom.    

I am passionate about helping other solo educators and educators in training open their academies and make more money without the roadblocks and misinformation I faced.

I look forward to sharing my expertise with the readers of the Salon Education Journal.
