Kim - Salon Owner and Senior Beauty and Spa Therapist.

Post graduate courses within the cosmoceutical field have been in Advanced Skin Analysis and Cosmetic Chemistry which assist in the better understanding of Skin conditions and how to utilise the new technology within our skin care products and treatments for best effect.
I have worked continually as a Beauty/Spa therapist since graduating and developed Tonic Spa in 2000. My enthusiasm for the Beauty industry is evident, in fact I am continually excited by the new advancements in treatments and technology.
Having developed a large and loyal clientele over the years I now however, no longer take on new clients. Instead I enjoy teaching and encouraging the Therapists who work with me to continue their post graduate learning, to be the best therapists they can be.
I now work full time on managing and growing Tonic Spa into one of Auckland's Premiere Boutique Beauty Spas.
