Owner & Therapist
I have always and ever wanted to be a beauty therapist. I qualified when I was 19, did a few years’ training and then took over the salon that I was currently working in and I’m still here. I love the job as it is so varied and you’re on the move all the time. My favourite part is meeting the clients and building a rapport with them, and seeing them come back again and again. James and I have three kids – two smallies – so I spend any free time I have with them, outdoors as much as we can. I also love to cook and I read a lot.
Hello. My name is Linda and I’ve been working with Gillian at La Femme since October 2013. I have a BA in Psychology from Limerick University, but subsequently decided to go on and study beauty therapy. I was fresh out of college when I started at La Femme, so Gillian organized for me to attend any training courses that appealed to me. I’ve trained in tanning, High Definition Brows, LVL Lash Lift, Miss Diva Lashes, intimate hot waxing and pregnancy massage. I have also completed a post-grad in Guinot Facial and Body Treatments. The area I’m most passionate about is skincare. The training from Guinot is the best you can get and their standard is definitely the highest I’ve ever experienced. I recently moved to Kealkill where I love being in my garden, going for walks and enjoying a nice glass of wine. I also swim every morning before work.

The Best Part of my job is meeting new people and Building up a relationship with Clients. Treatments I love to do are Shellac Nails, Pedicures and Facials. My Hobbies are Baking and running and Spending Time with my Family.
