She is also the founder of IFABBO (International Fashion and Beauty Bloggers Organization), which helps to unite the leaders in the profession to promote individual and professional growth and set standards and guidelines for the fashion and beauty blogging industry.

Prior to founding Beautisol™, Sinead worked as the Director of Education - North America for St.Tropez Tan, a leading sunless tanning brand. She was part of the original North America start-up team as St.Tropez launched a new campaign on the North American market in 2007. Sinead worked on strategic partnerships and acquisitions of large scale accounts such as Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa’s and The Ritz Carlton Hotel Group, amongst other high profile luxury establishments.

Before working for St.Tropez Tan, Sinead co-founded The Beauty Firm, a marketing consulting agency focused exclusively on the skin care and fashion industry. She worked with individual companies such as Asha Couture and Mineral Essence to market, brand, and successfully develop their business. Before The Beauty Firm, Sinead was Sales Director for Yonka Paris, a French luxury skin care company. Sinead started her career in the medical arena as a Para-medical aesthetician.

At Beautisol™, Sinead brings a vivacious sense of charm, fun, and warmth that infuse the core of the Beautisol™ culture. She's also known to love the word “perfect” a lot!
