Elma McKenzie qualified as a Radiographer at the University of Pretoria. But, after that she changed careers and studied Somatology. She also completed several courses overseas.
In January 1977 Elma started the first beauty Clinic in the Highveld area. From a small beginning, she built her business up to the well-known Elma McKenzie Spa, Beauty & Laser Clinic.
For many years she worked in all the surrounding towns in order to build a bigger clientele. In 2010 her Beauty Clinic won the Professional Beauty Award as “ BEST BEAUTY CLINIC in SA”. This Clinic was nominated several times under the top 3 Beauty Clinics in the country.
After 41 years in Ermelo, Elma relocated in March 2018 to Pretoria where she started the Elma Mckenzie Laser Clinic. As founder of Placècol and with her well-known reputation in the Beauty Industry, it didn’t take long to establish a successful Clinic again.
She loves working with people and enjoys her work. Elma believes that only THE BEST is good enough for her clients.
“Therefore I regard every new challenge in the clinic as an adventure. I praise the Lord for the wonderful opportunity to do this. Winning is just the beginning of a new, exhilarating challenge!"
