Bio The path that led her to this point
As a teenager with bad skin I started experimenting with all sorts of cosmetics and skincare to help deal with breakouts and redness.
I have surfed for over 20 years now and the sunscreen use was high so was the sun damage.
I was a Dive Master on the Great Barrier reef, then a clothes designer and then I moved into Massage Therapy.
In my late twenties, already a mother of two boys and with a keen interest in all things natural, I moved into Holistic Beauty Therapy and started to make my own products for fun.
My children would scream and run away when I would emerge from the bathroom with some food concoction spread over my face.
We traveled around Australia and I worked in several Day Spas and Studios - never really happy with having to push sales of products I didn't use myself.
An eventual move to Newcastle it was decided I would open my own Beauty Studio and run things my way, only stocking products I tried and tested.
I steered clear of the typical salon style and I became known for my more holistic personal approach.
Barefoot Beauty was born out of the frustration of buying products I could blend myself and my annoyance towards mass marketing and gimmicks.
I had been hand blending oils for years and with great feedback on the benefits of these oils I decided to create the Skin Detox System.
