Megan

Let me Introduce myself. My name is Megan Colwell, Owner and Director of The Beauty & Body Bar and First Things first Wellness Centre.

Throughout my working life I’ve had the opportunity to work in various roles within several diverse industries.  From each experience I’ve taken with me valuable knowledge and continually developed my commercial acumen.

I’m very much a ‘hands-on’ manager and have successfully developed administrative systems and organisational procedures that enable our business to operate effectively and efficiently.
