It was in 2012 that I discovered my love for nails, however working full time in an opticians kept me pretty busy.

Just two years later I decided I wanted to pursue a career in nails in 2014 and I completed my first nail course with Harmony Gelish.

My nail career so far has been spent working full time in salons. I just love the buzz and working with a team of people.

I am fully qualified in acrylic, hard gel, builder gel, gel polish, efile, manicure & pedicure. My favourite is acrylic design which is the area I specialise in and my most popular nail service.

During the pandemic I took the opportunity to do online workshops to learn some new nail art techniques and to complete my AET course which has lead me to teaching nails.
It’s been a long term goal of mine to help other techs with proper education and what better place to start than HD Academy.

I also used this time to build my social media presence and since 2020 my Tik Tok following has grown to over 85k. I post regular content and host weekly Tik Tok lives.

I am a dedicated salon tech, passionate about providing my clients with beautiful high quality nails. I would love to pass that passion to future nail techs and help them grow on their own nail journey.
