Hi my name is Katie, I am the Educational Manager and one of the tutors at the Jennifer Young Training School. My role is to compose the lesson plans and update the course materials that are necessary in the delivery of our accredited courses and to support other tutors with any educational provisions they might need. In addition I have the privilege of being able to train qualified therapists and Spas in all our adapted oncology courses. My favourite Jennifer Young Course is the Post Graduate Diploma in Oncology Reflexology – I just love feet.
My favourite part of the job is getting to go around different Spas across the UK educating them in our Spa Welcome Course, which allows them to offer a spa menu filled with our adapted oncology treatments. With this they are able to treat those living with cancer in their establishments without any GP referrals being required. As part of the training the therapists get to perform their new skills on models who are living with cancer, and I find this part of the job so special, not only do I get to meet these amazing people but I get to see first hand how these treatments benefit them and make them feel.
Before I joined the team at Jennifer Young 4 years ago, I taught all aspects of Beauty and Holistic Therapies in Further Education for over 12 years, alongside working for myself as a therapist. Prior to that I worked full time in various spas and salons.
When I’m not working for Jennifer or myself you’ll find me out and about with my four legged friend “Troublesome” Treacle on some walking adventure, scrambling up hills, paddling around reservoirs or stalking through woodlands. We love the outdoors whatever the weather.
I truly love the Jennifer Young Collections however if I had to pick only one product to be my favourite it would have to be the Defiant Beauty Smooth Skin Balm the smell is divine and it feels so luxurious when applied to the skin I love the fact the balm melts quickly on touch and absorbs easily in to the skin leaving it feeling very nourished.
