Kelly teaches Level 2 Make up and assists in the Level 3 Fashion & Photographic makeup course.
Kelly has worked for the Norwich School of Beauty for nearly 3 years but also alongside with her husband runs an internet retail business in Marsham as well as doing wedding, occasion and prom make ups.
Back in 2015, Kelly was a stay at home mum after being made redundant from an executive position at large telecoms company. Kelly wanted to take control of her own future and learn something new. Kelly had always had a great passion for all things make up, constantly watching you tube tutorials and trying to teach myself various techniques and started looking for career opportunities. Kelly said "I looked online and the first and only website I looked at was the Norwich school of beauty. I made the call that day and signed up for the Level 2 make up course. Before even starting the course I knew I was going to really enjoy it and half way through my level 2, I signed up for the fashion and photographic course. On completing the courses I worked on several photo shoots and was able to be part of Norwich fashion week. Working with brides on their wedding day to get them ready and completing make up has been a highlight for me. "
Kelly then was given the opportunity at the school to be a tutoring assistant. Kelly said "I was thrilled, I was able to continue to learn from more experienced members of the team but also knew I could help the students as I had been in their exact position as a student myself. Then to be asked to complete a teacher training course and become a tutor for Level 2 make up was the icing on the cake." Kelly said its fabulous to see many students that she has taught have gone on to have their own successful make up business working on photo shoots and having their work published in magazines. Kelly loves spending time with her family, taking her dog for walks in the woods or on the beach. Kelly also added she loves a bit of retail therapy and although I don't really have the opportunity these days I still love to dance as I used to be a Latin and Ballroom dance teacher! Kelly added to anyone considering training to 'Be the best version of you!'
