Hello, I'm Yadah!
[IN A NUTSHELL] I'm the owner of Get Spa Savvy. I help busy women accurately and safely implement self-care by providing mini-courses based on professional spa treatments because mixed messages on social media can lead to injuries.
[THE LONG STORY] I studied my butt off at an epic private college and racked up as many qualifications in the industry as possible. Then I spread my wings for a while, working in the spas on cruise ships before heading back home to pursue my real passion - education.
To me the spa & beauty industry isn't about fluffy superficial crap; it's about genuinely helping your clients have a better and healthier life.
I've worked directly with spas and salons, helping to improve the level of education of therapists at a one-on-one level. I've worked in multiple internationally accredited colleges and was even granted the opportunity to examine alongside a representative of the best of the best - CIDESCO.
After being offered the opportunity to open my own college by one of the national franchises in South Africa, I decided to go my own way and offer something I felt was (and is) desperately needed in our industry - real, quality online courses that allow the student to still learn allllll the important deets, but also allow them their own time schedule (because let's face it, life is BUSY and ain't nobody got time to study full time anymore!)
My focus was on creating courses for professionals, but then went mental every time I saw I a 16yo making a video and you're all like "yeah, she knows what's up, she's 'in the know' 😐" I'm gonna ruin this for you now, but she does not know what's up. I could have done anything to my skin at 16 and it would've smiled at me (seriously, ask me what I did with gin and camphor...) - there are unfair people like that out there (with normal unreactive skin), and they're the ones making videos. I was one of them. Except I didn't make videos, because that wasn't a thing back then. I have evolved and I really want you to too before you damage yourself.
