Get to Know Team Derma’s Simone

by | 30 August 2019

What does an average day in the life of the Co-Managing Director of Derma Aesthetics look like?

What is average?! What I love about my position in Derma is that there is no average for me! One day I could be waking up in Perth taking education, another day in New Zealand to see my team & heading out on the road to see clients, or another popping into Sydney HQ for a day of planning and meetings.

But, every morning at 6.15am, my alarm goes off. I always start the day with a cup of tea, first thing in bed watching the 6.30am news.

If I’m home, I’ll knock over some house duties then shower. When I’m home, I love to go makeup free or apply just a light coverage of dermaviduals deco Bespoke Foundation.

Then, it is time to check emails, any internal communication with the Derma Team and have a good 15 minute catch up with my EA, Jane, and then it is time to get to work! On any given day I could be:

  • Flying to a new location
  • Educating others
  • Educating myself to bring new education to others
  • Working on social media
  • Staff training and development
  • Putting fires out when needed (but not often in our company, luckily!)
  • Planning
  • Developing new products
  • Working with suppliers
  • Thinking up new designs and campaigns
  • Making time for my family, which is so important to me

Before I turn in for the night, I love a herbal tea and will always read before I close down for the night to do it all again tomorrow!

As you can see there is no average day and I like it like this!



If you weren’t doing skin, what would you want to do?

I believe it would be something creative – I do love photography and design. The other thing I have a true passion for is educating others, so teaching could be on the cards. But truly I couldn’t see myself not working in this amazing industry that I belong to!



Favourite place to travel?

Florence, Italy.



Mantra you live by?

Be who you were designed to be, knowing that you will never be perfect, but you are perfectly designed.



What are 5 things in your handbag right now?

  • Wallet and some cash
  • Lip Balm (dermaviduals, of course!)
  • Brush and hair tie
  • My LV note pad and pen
  • My water bottle (this goes everywhere with me!)



Sweet or savoury?

Sweet for sure!



Best advice you’ve ever been given?

Love your family with all that you have.
