Francesca attended Abraham Moss, now North Manchester College, to gain her Higher Diploma in Beauty Therapy, then ran her own beauty therapy business for several years whilst teaching part-time. As Francesca enjoyed the teaching aspect so much, she went to Bolton Institute of Higher Education to study for her Certificate in Education. She then went on to work full time as a lecturer in Beauty Therapy and was Curriculum Leader for Service Industries at Tresham College, Northamptonshire.
