Maria is a passionate beauty therapist with 15 years of experience as a trainer and assessor.
Maria has been with ACBT for 10 years now and she is determined to train students to the high standard required when faced with demand in the beauty industry.
"Beauty therapy has provided me with so many wonderful opportunities. I have had the pleasure of taking my students on international trips to spas in Europe and across Australia. I have been fortunate to work and train with some amazing people and product ranges along the way."
Haylee studied in New Zealand and completed the following CIBTAC and CIDESCO qualifications alongside her Diploma of Beauty Therapy in 2009.
- CIBTAC- Aesthetics
- CIBTAC- Body Therapies
- CIDESCO - Beauty Therapies
- CIDESCO- Aromatherapy
Haylee then gravitated towards the spa industry as she enjoyed the holistic environment and approach. Haylee has been fortunate to work in high-end spas in New Zealand and Perth and naturally progressed to a manager/in-spa-trainer before becoming an educator. Although her background is spa-based, Haylee also specialises in skin, skincare, and facials.
Haylee first started as a trainer and assessor in 2015. There are many reasons why she decided to become an educator and why she loves working at ACBT.
"I have discovered that education and learning lead to growth and opportunity. Additionally, to be in a position where I can assist students in making their career goals a reality is a massive motivator.
A Beauty Therapy qualification from ACBT can lead to an exciting and practical career. The opportunities in Perth and internationally are unlimited regardless of the path you take. It is also a lucrative industry for those who prefer to work from home."
Caroline has always been passionate about Beauty Therapy. She has 15 years of industry experience, working within Day Spas across Perth delivering high-end treatments and for 9 years has successfully run her own business.
While mentoring junior staff members, Caroline recognised the need for more expertise in the training sector to maintain the high standards required within the beauty industry. This led her to complete a qualification in Training and Assessment.
"I want to take all that I have learned and help our students to have a long and prosperous career, just as I have had through following my passion. It truly is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together."
