Martha

Aesthetician

Born in Salzburg, Austria, Martha grew up in the hotel business run by her parents. When she graduated high school, she began an apprenticeship in aesthetics. Unfortunately, her father died, forcing her to leave behind her studies to help the family, working in the hotel business for 12 years. During that time, she married and had a daughter. In 1961, with her husband, and two-year, she made the voyage by ship across the Atlantic. In the Volkswagen that made the trip with them, the family headed west to join Martha’s brother-in-law in Victoria. Six weeks after they arrived, Martha gave birth to a son. The busy mom started learning English by enrolling in a night class. To practise her new language, she worked in a coffee shop and later as a waitress in a restaurant. In 1977, she was approached about working in the old European Skin Care Centre in Victoria because they were looking for a German speaker. Martha, who had never given up her dream of being an aesthetician, took the opportunity to learn while she worked, taking on an apprenticeship. Her husband died before she finished her studies and wrote her exams in 1979. Her children grown, she threw herself into her new career. She says she loves her work because she enjoys being around people and making them feel great. Clients love Martha’s European flair.

Love my European pedicure by Martha!
