FOOTBALL AND BEAUTY
Justine Mitchell, Chamomile Sanctuary
Justine Mitchell has two very different business interests – football and beauty! In football, she’s a co-owner of Dundee United FC, set up and Chairs the Dundee United Women’s Football Club, is Joint Chair of the Scottish Women’s Football Board and also a Trustee of the Charity, United for all. In 2010 she started her own spa, Chamomile Sanctuary in Edinburgh, with a vision to bring the standards of a luxurious countryside spa to the heart of the city.
Justine lost her father and her husband within days of each other, but has gone on to make a successful life for herself and her son. We were so inspired by her story, we picked Justine as our BWS Inspirational Woman of the Year 2016.
Justine will talk to Rachel McTavish about how she got involved with these two industries, life as a female in the world of football, the business lessons learned from both her roles, and how she managed to survive through tragedy.
