Meet The Team
Owner, Dermal Clinician & Physiotherapist
Kim has an impressive career in the beauty industry spanning over 35 years. She first began her journey in Otago while studying to be a physiotherapist, and after graduation, she combined her two passions, physiotherapy, the physical rehabilitation of her clients and beauty, the repair of skin dysfunctions, creating a unique approach to skincare. Her goal has always been to make a significant long-term difference in someone else's life, and her personal experience with severe and ongoing skin issues and multiple injuries from a young age has driven her ambition.

These accolades are derived from clinical outcomes, and she has also received the Hastings City Best Client Experience Award, voted by public submission and Best in Professional Services.
Kim is a respected speaker at both national and international conferences, where she shares her knowledge and expertise with her peers in both the physiotherapy and beauty industries. She has also published work that is now used as a resource to inspire other professionals and expand their knowledge base.
Kim is committed to providing expert-level information that is validated by science and/or clinical evidence. She is known for her 'go the extra mile' efforts and attitude, and she strives to educate her staff to take on a similar ethos to that of her own.
