MICHELLE Davie has set herself up in business at the Ramada Hotel, doing a job she loves.
Michelle launched Emeralds spa salon inside the hotel earlier this month and has already garnered a steady stream of customers.
She said: “I went into businesses for myself because I love it.
“I used to work in schools and then retail at Downtown for a while before doing a nail course.
“I decided I wanted to do more in nails and then asked the Ramada if they had anything here. I was surprised when they said they said “no” so then I decided to open a spa salon here.”
Michelle works alongside two other beauty therapists and between them they can offer a range of services from facial massage to hair and beauty for weddings.
The salon also offers some services which you are unlikely to find anywhere else in town such a bamboo massage.
Michelle said: “We opened a couple of weeks ago and we have been quite busy already - especially on weekends.
“On October 23 we are having our official open day with free gifts and tasters for people to find out more about the products.”
