Career
“I matriculated from Khomas High School in 2007 after which I worked for a real estate company by the name of Just Letting. I worked there as an administration clerk for two years.
In February 2010 I resigned and went to study skincare and body therapy at the Madge Wallace College in Pretoria. The duration of the course was two years and in November 2011, I graduated with a diploma in Skincare and Body Therapy.
“I moved back to Namibia and in February 2012 I got my first job at Amy’s Wellness Centre in Windhoek. During my time there I was employed as a spa therapist and this was where I gained experience.
“In March 2013 I made the decision to quit my job so that I can open my own spa. This was a huge decision because it was completely out of my comfort zone. When I was ready I opened my business and operated from a small room in Windhoek West. I had no clients but my ambition kept me going
“In August 2013 I moved to a bigger office at Shop 27E, on the first floor of the Old Power Station Complex in the Southern Industrial Area. This is where I am based currently and I am still working on expanding my business.
“I recently started using Regime A medical skin treatment products. Regime A is one of the best skincare products on the market. Clients have seen wonderful results with my treatment and as a result, they have referred more clients. In less than two months, I managed to acquire a regular client base of about 20 people.
Education
Diploma in Skincare and Body Therapy from the Madge Wallace College in Pretoria.
Currently enrolled as a second year nursing student at Welwitschia University in Lafrenz
Credo
“When I am at work, I only focus on building my business and on ways how I can improve my skills. I try by all means to stay positive. In my free time, I engage in activities such as yoga, going to church and spending time with my family.
