Where did it all begin?
My passion for the beauty/cosmetic industry started in 2004. Fresh out of high school, I made the move to Perth to study a Diploma in Beauty Therapy at a leading private college. From there, the opportunities’ literally fell into my lap and led me to where I am today.
I started out in an upmarket busy beauty salon in Fremantle where I quickly realised I wanted to do more than provide massages and waxing. I was lucky enough to have a client who could see I had more passion who then introduced me to a cosmetic Dr who owned cosmetic clinics not only in Perth but around to the world. They took me in and with little to no experience, they trained me. I weaned my way into doing treatments I had never even heard of before, soon opening up the world of cosmetic medicine to me. I gained experience working alongside the Dr in theatre assisting in minor cosmetic procedures, laser resurfacing and cosmetic enhancements. I was exposed to this industry at a young age and developed the passion and obsession for all things anti-aging and beauty enhancing. It was at this point that I witnessed the treatments that I aim to provide today at Fusion Aesthetics.
After completing as many qualifications as I could in different areas of dermal therapies I knew that to do more I needed to become a registered nurse. So I did! 3 and half years later I achieved this goal and continued to tick many other goals off my list. Even though I signed up for the degree so I could administer cosmetic injectables, its always been much more than that.
I have gained extensive experience and knowledge with over a decade of being in the industry. I have worked in some amazing clinics and appreciate all the experiences and exposure it has given, but to achieve my final goal and be the best I can be in this industry Fusion Aesthetics was born. My sanctuary where I put all passion for anti-aging, wellness and beauty enhancing treatments in one place. I pride myself on enhancing and protecting natural beauty, educating on how we cannot fight the aging process but nor do we surrender to it.
Love Gina x
My journey in the Beauty and skin industry started when I was 16 in 2014, I enrolled to do my Certificate IV in beauty therapy at the WA Academy of Hair and Beauty. My love for skin and beauty therapy grew from there, I wanted to absorb everything I could, to relax people and treat skin.
After a few years I discovered I could take my skin knowledge to the next level and I enrolled to do my Graduate Diploma of Dermal Therapies. Two years have passed and I am now a qualified dermal therapist.
I want to help others with their skin concerns as I have had my own skin journey through the years dealing with breakouts and hormonal skin.
I love being able to care for my clients in a range of treatments from, a brow wax to a relaxing facial to destress, or skin needling to combat different skin concerns and more.
I have had the chance to work at a couple amazing beauty and skin clinics in my 5 years and gain experience to better myself as a therapist and continue to grow.
Now I have found myself a new home, at Fusion Aesthetics working along side Gina. I pride myself on being a warm, gentle and a knowledgeable therapist, to care for your beauty and skin needs.

I am Dr Hookham and I love the community that I grew up in.
I went to Eaton Primary School and Australind Senior High School before moving to Perth to complete a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from the University of Western Australia. I much preferred a more ‘country’ life and was keen to come home and as soon as I could I moved back to the Bunbury area to finalise my Internship, Resident and Registrar years at Bunbury Regional Hospital. During this time I met my beautiful wife Cahleen.
Together we now have a wonderful family with four amazing children. Having a family made me consider my long term career goals and I decided to work towards becoming a General Practitioner. This was one of the best decisions I had made. I love my job! I love helping people in any way that I can, whether it is treating an illness or being someone to talk to.
Cahleen and I are both young, motivated people and wanted to set out to create a business together that could evolve and be responsive to community needs – hence why we built The Health Hub at Eaton Fair. We offer affordable quality care, some exciting new concepts and many services to cater for your Family’s Health and Wellness.
