Hi I’m Jess! I Currently run my own busy salon, Gloss Nail Salon, in Mangawhai in winterless Northland. Prior to training with Monaco, I ran my own Graphic and Web Design business and worked as a freelance Photographer, over my professional career I have worn a few hats… Senior Designer, Art Director, Creative Director, Publisher, and Event Planner to name just a few. I have a Diploma in Graphic Design and studied Art, Design and Photography in the UK in the late 90s, so creativity is a huge part of my personality.

After having my second baby, I decided a career pivot was in order and loved the idea of combining my love for colour and art with my working day. The best part of my job is that I am often the highlight of my clients week! Nobody is in a bad mood to see me when it’s nail day.

I have a passion for natural nail health and love creating unique, hand-painted art for my clients, just as much as I love a crisp and clean single colour. Monaco has supported me with the skills to become a meticulous and sought-after Nail Technician, something that I am excited as a Mentor to pass on those skills to others in their own journey.
