Duration in Weeks:
I was always attracted to the beauty arena in general. From shaping brows and watching make-up tutorials, to trying to figure out what was best for my skin at a young age
I chose to undertake the course at Elite because I felt the programme would help me make a career out of something I really enjoyed. So I knew I needed to start at the best institute for Beauty Therapy in New Zealand, and that is Elite!
Elite has nurtured me into the beauty therapist I am today. I feel that I am well equipped and confident to go out on my own into the industry
I was awarded the ‘Top Beautician 2018’ for Elite at the Queen Street campus. I was beyond shocked, and at that moment I realised that Elite had seen more in me than I had seen in myself. It was such an amazing feeling and really helped to grow my confidence.
I am currently working at the Caci Clinic Pukekohe, as a Skin Technician
My role mostly involves providing clients with high quality facials and laser hair removal treatments (VPL).
The most exciting part of my job is getting to meet new people every day, and building a relationship with clients where they learn to trust you, when taking care of them and providing their treatments. Also, when clients give good feedback about their treatment, it really lifts you up and motivates you to push forward and uplift others!
Definitely! There were also times when Elite went above and beyond for me and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Highlights for me were getting to know my trainers and absorbing all the information and advice they had to offer. And also getting to meet new therapists that are now close friends thanks to Elite
One important lesson that I have experienced since being in the industry is to always be on your top game. Learn as much as you can, while you can, and never take anything for granted.
