I had to divert to survive
Hello, my name is, Ashley Greggans
I was the winner of the 2019 respect award.
I won this award because of my dedication and commitment to my business.
I left my full-time NHS job to pursue my lifetime goal of becoming a cosmetic nurse,
working three jobs to finance my education.
Since the 2019 awards, the pandemic really affect my business
and I had to shut my clinic down.
I was finically crushed and really deflated
after everything I had worked so hard for to be taken away from me.
I knew I had to divert my business to survive, I created lock-down facial survival kits
with the spare stock I had leftover in the clinic which sold well using social media.
This inspired me to work with a biosciences lab to create my own skincare range
Cosmetology with Elegance.
I launched it in April, and it has been successful and finically saved my business and my passion.
I also enrolled and qualified in VCTC NVQ level 3, teaching and education.
I opened EA training recently and taught my first student.
I love my job.
It's my passion.
to be nominated for all achievements is everything!
