Our Team

Lucila Gabriel
General Business Manager and Co-founder

Free spirited by nature, I have always dreamed of creating something of my own. However, it was only later that my entrepreneurial spark was ignited, my career originally as an accountant after graduating from Macquarie University in 2004. Enticed by the multiple Employer of Choice awards held by Ernst & Young, I started working with the leading firm as a graduate.

Although born with a mind curious about the greater commercial world, it was only after completing my post-graduate degree that I began diligently studying the rise and fall of many greats.

Constantly observing how successful businesses were built up and operated today, questions inevitably started brewing, more specifically around customer service departments and website functionality:

How can many of the big names get customer service so wrong? Why are so many leading websites so hard to navigate through? Why doesn’t anyone let me search for beauty services near me?

Then it hit me.

What if I could create a company where great customer service was paramount, where websites didn’t disappointment customers, and where businesses were genuinely supported in the beauty space? The more I thought about it, the more it made sense.

After months of extensive planning and together with a network of exquisite professionals, Beauty n Health was born.

From the stem of my initial thoughts to what you see today at Beauty n Health has taken many years of growth, adaptations and challenges- all of which I can assure has been worth it. I trust that you will find our site super easy to use, visually delightful, and enjoy the Beauty n Health customer care difference.

Welcome aboard beauties!
