Moyra UK Educator. My name is Karen Derbyshire and I am a mother of two handsome sons and a beautiful daughter and between them they have given me my 4 gorgeous granddaughters who I adore! I live with my fiancé Peter in a lovely village between Bolton and Manchester! I have been a dedicated Nail Artist, Educator and Competition Judge for over 25 years this has given me the opportunity to travel all around the world doing the job that is my passion!!!
I run a successful business from home, alongside my busy schedule of mixing business and daily duties I dedicate my time to educating for Moyra UK helping to improving the standards within the nail industry by introducing students to one of the best brands within this industry if not The best! My enthusiasm and energy I believe inspires people to want to become a nail technician and my patience and people skills are a bonus. My students and team mates alike love my humour and dedication to the brand. Over the years I have travelled in the competition arena both as a competitor and Judge all around the globe as far as Las Vegas, Malta, Slovenia and as near as London, Scotland, Ireland and Manchester to name a few. I was the owner of a very successful Nail and Beauty salon with 5 staff but personal commitments forced me to close the business and work from home and I have done so now for over 16 years.
Around 10 years ago I had a purpose built extension in which to work from, which enabled me to offer more treatments including hairdressing! Investing my time in continual education to further my own skills has certainly paid dividends for me professionally. Words that I live and aspire by are Sincerity, Dedication, Loyalty, Professionalism, and Positive mental attitude, Education, Enjoyment, Motivate, Profit, Patience, Humour, Enthusiasm and Ambition!!! I hope to be an inspiration to others and I’m excited to continually grow along with the exceptionally fabulous Moyra UK brand, with wonderful people who like myself dedicate their time and expertise to share some awesome trade secrets! Great customer support both during and after courses end, with a unique style of education and nail application. It would be my honour to help you start or expand your nail journey!
