Linda's background is 28 years in the travel industry, starting in an administrative and sales capacity, progressing to Managing Director. This covered three offices and four branches. A vibrant business that focused on bespoke travel arrangements and business travel.
After the business was sold, she took the opportunity to return to study, taking forward the positive elements of the previous role, helping and managing people. This took her on a journey with Holistic Therapy, which is the path I am still successfully continuing today on a self-employed basis.
She has been a Hydrotherm practitioner for fifteen years now, offering remedial massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki
( treatment and tutoring). I have experience in delivering VTCT Diploma courses in Aromatherapy, massage therapy and Indian head massage, working in Further Education .
I am a happy, positive person with excellent inter-personal skills, sales, administration, good management skills, work well on own initiative and in a team environment. Always developing personally and professionally.
