I’ve been working at Essential Wholesale since 2004 and have had hands on experience in every department, which has made my experience invaluable. My school education in South Africa gave me a very firm foundation on which to build my later business credentials and work ethic. When I moved to the USA in my teens, I started in the sales world before graduating from high school. Early on in my work life, I discovered my interest in health and the cosmetic industry because of my personal battle with cystic acne and through my interactions with the public. My desire to succeed took me from managing the Lancôme counter in a large store at the age of 19, on to banking, the high tech world, and then to the telecommunications industry as a trainer and installation technician. Along the way, I attended college but preferred hands-on training.
In my late twenties, I qualified as an Esthetician and discovered Von Natur Spa owned by Essential Wholesale. I loved it and was soon deeply involved in every aspect of the business. When Dennis and Kayla decided to close it down to focus entirely on their Essential Wholesale business, they insisted that I continue to work for them at Essential Wholesale. I have been with Essential Wholesale since then and have been instrumental in growing the business, which has been so fabulous for me.
