Hello, I'm Ava! A little about me… I’m a great believer that we are all here to serve a purpose with the limited time we have on this earth. Over the years I have truly transformed my life. From leaving home when I was 17 years old, living within my comfort zone and avoiding uncomfortable conversations to now, living a positive, abundant, FULL life. Over the past few years I’ve set myself goals that included personal and business achievements and I achieved them all, plus more! I have grown my small beauty business from my spare room into a recognized and respected brand within the beauty industry. I have employed staff, educated and mentored hundreds of students who travel from all over the UK (even from overseas!), judged lash and brow competitions, been a keynote speaker for events, and I have hosted events within the industry. Soon to start my degree in Psychology Counselling I am passionate about making a positive impact on the world. Alongside my multifaceted career I am also a mother and the things that make me the happiest are being in nature with my loved ones, exploring the beauty around me and sitting on my sofa dipping a Cadburys chocolate bar into a cuppa tea!
