About Us

Founded in 2007 by Yvette Adams, between 2009 – 2014 the business operated as a franchise with offices on the Gold Coast and Newcastle, NSW. In late 2013, the decision to centralise all franchised offices, clients and operations was made, and Katrina Lees, previously the Newcastle franchisee, became the business partner of Yvette Adams.
