Abbey Street, Wicklow Town. Tel: 0404 66177
My working history is corporate, having worked in various corporate environments including McCann FitzGerald Solicitors, Orix Aviation Limited (a multinational aircraft leasing company) and Citibank in London (for 5 years). On returning from London in 2000 I moved to Wicklow and worked part-time in an aircraft management company. In 2008 I was in my regular beauty salon (Aura Beauty & Massage) having a treatment when the therapist mentioned that the business was for sale. I had been looking for a change in direction and decided to buy the business.
Unfortunately this happened just as the recession took hold but I have managed to keep the business going with the help of some great staff members and the support of friends and family. In order to adapt to changes in the market we moved from our original premises to a more prominent location on Abbey Street four years ago which increased footfall and exposure.
At Aura our motto is “be your own kind of beautiful”. We want your salon visit to be as enjoyable as possible whether you are with us for 10 minutes or several hours. It is how people feel when they walk out the door that is important, they should leave feeling that they have had an excellent treatment, at a value for money price and most of all that they have enjoyed the time they have spent with us.
As part of my own personal growth I became interested in the holistic field several years ago. I have studied reiki, mediumship, shamanic practices, all things angel, crystals and mindfulness to name but a few. I am constantly evolving and adding to these areas and bringing on board new practices. These practices have now become part of my business as Mariposa Healing Wicklow and CC Event & Personal Management.
I am blessed to have worked with some amazing teachers and mentors in the last 2 years. I am introducing more and more events and workshops in the salon and in Wicklow Town and beyond. The event and personal management aspect of my business brings me in contact with many powerful healers and teachers and it is work that has brought together my love for all things holistic and my organisational and project management skills from my corporate background.
I am very fortunate to be doing work that I am passionate about. Both the beauty and holistic businesses are constantly evolving and I am introducing new and exciting things during the course of this year in all areas. I am delighted to be launching my own website in the coming weeks which will cover all aspects of my business. Until then information can be found on Facebook at “Aura Beauty & Massage” and “Mariposa Healing Wicklow” or by calling me on 0404 66177 or 087 9943776.
Some of the most important things I’ve learned in the last few years are that I can be or do anything I set my mind too and that I should be grateful for everything in my life - the good and the bad - the good is to be enjoyed and the bad is an opportunity for growth. Today I am grateful for the many blessings in my life, including the work that I do.
