Katie is the owner of Distinction Health and Beauty. Katie has worked in the Beauty industry for twelve years and came straight to work for Distinction from college. Having built up experience and a wealth of knowledge Katie decided to follow her dreams and buy the salon she loved working in. She had already built up an excellent reputation and an ever-increasing client base, so it seemed the right direction to move in.

After a fantastic massage and facial in her trade test, I knew she was the extra addition Distinction needed. Jade is a holistic therapist, meaning she is an expert in facials, massages, reflexology and head massage. In addition, she does eyebrow threading and will be the only threader in the salon.
