Ashley Paine, Adelaide South (SA) Franchisee

Hi I am Ashley,

Actually, I’m Dawn (Ashley Paine) but I’ve been known as Ashley for all my life  – my parents have a lot to answer for why I don’t answer to Dawn! I am 58 years young and live in the most beautiful beach suburb, Aldinga Beach, which is an hour south of Adelaide. The beaches, wineries and beautiful weather make this the best area to live.

My husband and I, along with our 22-year-old daughter, Jenny, emigrated here from the UK in 1984. It was the best move we have ever made. Four years later our son Christopher (we call him ‘Toffa’) was born. Both he and Jenny are big kids (both in their 30’s) and between them have blessed us with six grandchildren ranging from 2 to 16 years old making our grandparenting life busy!

I became a registered nurse in 1992, training in the last group to train on the job in South Australia. For the past 20 years, I have worked as a night duty nurse on a palliative care ward.

Even though palliative care work is rewarding it is also mentally stressful so when I saw Pedi People advertising that franchises were available in Adelaide I had an immediate light bulb moment. I’d been wanting to do something different for a while and this was a no brainer: my own business caring and helping people, my own hours, a proven model to follow with full support and no management who see you only as a number!!

I am so excited about this new venture. I’m starting slow but I am hoping my Pedi People franchise will be successful enough that I can drop my night shifts in palliative care soon to do toenails full time. And I hope that in 5 years  time I’m still loving it so much I won’t want to retire!
