Congratulations to Karla McDiarmid and the Macquarie Skin & Day Spa team who collected three awards in September at the 2011 Bathurst Business Awards.

They achieved Excellence in People Development, Excellence in Lifestyle and Wellbeing and were voted the overall winner of the night with the WHK Carillon Bathurst Business of the Year award.

Karla McDiarmid purchased the established business in Bathurst over nine years ago and has since developed the existing skincare business to a thriving day spa.

The team at Bathurst Macquarie Skin & Day Spa believe that the customer always comes first and Karla reinforces this fact when training her team of therapists to ensure that every client leaves the spa feeling like a VIP.

Karla has fought through some tough times in business to be recognized as an exceptional business woman and has continued to grow her skincare business even while other businesses in the region have fallen to the effects of the GFC.

With a large percentage of their clientele searching for intensive anti-ageing solutions, Sothys skin and spa care is used and recommended in the spa and enjoyed by the team and their clients alike. Sothys commend the team on this great result and the dedication to their craft.

Karla plans to be in New York visiting the Sothys NYC Institute in early October where she will enjoy the wonderful face and body treatments that she treats her regular clients to.
