The Team

Katie Dunn Bsc (hons) Beauty Therapy & Management, Owner.

I have had 15 enjoyable & practical years experience providing Beauty & Holistic Treatments since completing my Bachelors Degree in Beauty Therapy & Business Management.  I have held various Spa and Salon Management positions throughout my career as well as teaching and assessing positions for the University of Derby.

Originally from Longnor, near Buxton I enjoy the outdoors, the country side and the lifestyle that it brings,  time with family and friends (and my two dogs) is also very important to me.
