MEET THE TEAM
Hi, I’m Victoria!
Hi I’m Victoria Felicia (Vicki) and I’m the director and head of academy at Ostara Wellbeing. I have over 14 years’ experience in the industry and 10 years’ experience in teaching. My background is both as a beauty and business studies lecturer having gained a degree in Business Management. I have taught in further education, secondary schools as a teacher of GCSE’S and A levels and have experience of working within primary education as part of a mental health and wellbeing programme for schools.
Now I’m so pleased to run my own successful academy with a growing team as well as coaching and mentoring business owners within the beauty and aesthetics industry to scale up their businesses. My specialism is within semi-permanent makeup, medical tattooing and Body art (general tattooing). I’m grateful to recently WON beauty educator of the year in Suffolk in the LUX Health Beauty & Wellness awards.
My plan is to help as many business owners as possible in the industry to achieve their goals and to help our students to become successful in their careers within the industry.
Hi, I’m Amanda!
My career began in 1991 and I have been lucky enough to work for companies such as Centre Parcs, Anglia Television and the Norfolk Constabulary.
After providing treatments for so long I was given the opportunity to train as a teacher within the industry. I have worked in colleges where I taught NVQ Level 2 & 3 beauty related qualifications to both 16-18 year olds and mature students.
I now teach SPMU, Tattoo and other courses for Ostara Wellbeing Academy alongside running my own home based business.
