A little bit about me


I know many Museo clients know me well, and some have even known me since I was 21 and have been with me since my first salon days in Fremantle. But there are probably just as many of you who only glimpse me and don’t know a thing about me. So, here is a little work history.


For many years I worked as an Aesthetician and Shiatsu Practitioner, specialising in advanced skin therapies, acne treatments and relaxation services. As our business grew our family grew with the arrival our two gorgeous girls now aged 17 and 12 years.


Throughout the past 2 decades I’ve worn many hats and worked in a variety of roles within Museo. Having expanded and renovated the business 4 times in the past 18 years and at times having close to 40 employees, Museo has certainly kept me very busy, but it also ignited my business mindset. I love all things business (well not the paperwork so I have help) but I like the changes and challenges that come with being in business.


There have been times when it has certainly been too much – the juggle of parenting whilst running a small business, like who looks after the kids when you both want to be taking the meeting and being a husband and wife team and living it 24 hours a day teaches you to instil boundaries the hard way– I’ve learnt not to sweat the small stuff.


We are all getting older and it’s not so bad


I’m now well into my forties. It’s not so bad. I have a terrific husband and kids I adore who I’m certain adore me back and still love to hang out with me, I have a great family and beautiful supportive girlfriends who understand me and I them. I’m established in my career and stimulated by my work and more confident and comfortable in my skin than ever before.  


I recognise how important time is and that the choices we make today with the quality of our eating, exercising, mental stimulation and relaxation will affect how well we age into our 60’s, 70’s 80’s and I hope our 90’s.


I have no issue with aging, but with age, your skin and body does need some help as everything starts to head south and get a little creaky. I would like to be the fittest and healthiest I can be with a skin and body that allows me to have the confidence to do everything in life I want to (please note I’m a realist and the idea of ever being in a bikini in public is long gone)


I’m at the point where you realize you need to put certain things into practice if you want to lead a happy and healthy life and that you need to continually find that balance of incorporating the important elements in life that you personally need ( it differs for us all )to stay fit, healthy and ‘feeling like you’  amidst the general duties of being an adult, work life and for those of us that are also parents and carers for others. Life can be crazy…..


Why I do what I do

I love being able to offer a haven where you can come back to being just you. Whether it is just coming to have your hair done each month to look like the normal you or to enjoy a relaxing massage to unwind the mental stress and tight body to feel like the normal you or to improve and enhance your skin so that you have a more confident you fills me with joy and I love that so many men and women understand the importance of taking time for yourself and that when coming to Museo we look after you the moment you walk in the door.


So let’s talk skin and what’s going to help

I’m a prolific reader of everything and I’m not a gimmicky girl at all. Only if it’s proven to work, has the research behind it and we’ve trialled it, will it be offered at Museo.


Combining different modalities and skin treatments will give you the best success, whether we are treating a skin condition, disorder or general aging.
