“Making people look good and feel amazing is what I love most about our business.”
Karen Chester, Level 4-Advanced Beauty
Clinic Business Manager
Karen joined Illuminate in spring 2017 as Clinic Business Manager to help Dr Sophie with the day-to-day management and future development of the business.
She started out in beauty therapy and is Level 2, 3 and 4 qualified, before entering aesthetics. Karen has over 16 years extensive experience in the aesthetics industry and prior to joining Illuminate spent over 9 years managing the flagship clinic of a leading UK chain.
At Illuminate she works very closely with Dr Sophie on many areas of the business. These include business management and systems, business development, quality assurance, product sourcing, marketing and customer relations.
Karen is passionate about the whole industry and gains huge satisfaction from seeing some of the fantastic results that the clinic brings to clients and the difference that effective treatments can make to a client’s confidence and outlook.
When she is not working Karen loves to travel – to the Far East and Spain in particular. Her other passion is animals, having grown up on a farm in Little Leighs, Essex.
