"Being a beauty therapist for Neilson is one of the best things I have ever done. I planned to do only one season and I am now on my seventh. It combines everything I love; beauty therapy, travel, sports, socializing. It has developed my skills and confidence and I have been promoted to Spa Supervisor for summer 2014.
