in the industry. Donna qualified up to NVQ Level 3 right here in Telford before sailing a
way to work onboard cruise ships, employed by Elemis’s sister company Steiner, this was Donna’s introduction to the wonders of Elemis skincare.
On returning to land Donna joined Bannatyne’s Spa & Club in Birmingham, before being scouted by Telford College to run their training salon Lilly’s inside the Telford Whitehouse Hotel.
After 4 years at Lilly’s, due to budget cuts the salon was to be closed. Donna was asked to remain in the salon and after a quick refurbishment and re-branding Yutopia Spa was born. After 7 years building clients and recruiting therapists the Yutopia team grew and the rooms in the Mercure Hotel was to small, it was time to find a permanent home for Yutopia. Thanks to the help from Telford and Wrekin with the High Street Grant Yutopia’s new home is now on Madeley High Street where Donna grew up and her family lived for many years, She says its nice to be back home and see some familiar faces.
Outside of work Donna enjoys Parties with friends, Kitchen raves with her husband. Also going to the gym, running and keeping fit, a healthy mind and a healthy body work together to provide positivity and satisfaction.
