Hi, I'm Iva and I'm 32 years old.
I recently moved from Croatia to Ireland to become part of the Kinsale Hotel and Spa team to work as a Spa Operations Manager.
My career started very early. My father was a successful hairdresser and owner of hair salons in Croatia so I was involved in the beauty industry since childhood. Because of interest and love towards it, I enrolled in Cosmetology school and graduated with honours.
During my high school education, I realized I had a passion towards make up. On two occasions I received 1st place in the Croatian Championship - Beauty Makeup category and 4th place in the World Championship - USA.
After graduating from high school, I enrolled at the Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality, where I earned a Master's degree in Economics. During my schooling I worked in various hotels as a Spa therapist, and for the last 7 years as a Spa Manager.
My hobbies are learning foreign languages, so in addition to English and Croatian I know a little bit of Italian, a little bit of German and Spanish. I love to travel, spend time on the beach and in nature and hiking.
Let me introduce my team, and invite you to our Spa where you will forget all your worries …
