It all started after her matric year, on a college field trip, while walking past International Academy students. Crai-Dean knew then and there what she wants to do going forward. In 2007 she started her studies at the Academy Of Health And Skincare.
Soon after graduation following her passion, she had an opportunity to Join Steiner Ltd, now known as OneSpaWorld (the onboard spa) at Royal Caribbean Cruises. She had started as a body therapist first and then filled a dual role as a skincare therapist and assistant manager. In 2017, she ended her contract with Steiner and moved over to Canyonranch Spa Club at Celebrity Cruises as a skincare therapist and onboard trainer.
After many years at sea, she realized that she is wanting more for herself and wants to grow in the aesthetic industry. She has since returned to South Africa and is currently a therapist at Body Renewal Claremont.
