Jeanne Bluett-Duncan

Banstead Shop Manager

I started working for Art of Living in 2010 as a Saturday girl and have been with the company on and off as I was pursuing being a pastry chef. I studied at Westminster Kingsway College and worked in 2 5* hotels; South Lodge Hotel and Pennyhill Park Hotel. In November 2017 I joined Art of Living permanently starting in the warehouse to pick and pack online orders and now I’m the Shop Manager for the Banstead shop.

Paul Taylor

Reigate Floor Manager

I’ve been at AOL now for 12 years., starting my training with Babette at Reigate and working my way up to floor manager. I have done a few cake classes and master classes on knife skills and plenty of demos in all of our shops.....more than I can remember. I still love it! Before joining AOL, I am a classically trained chef taking 3 years. I’ve worked in small restaurants, pubs, hotels and mainly on the hospitality side which has taken me up and down the country and over to OZ.

Emma Hay

Reigate Shop Manager

I have been working in my favourite shop (Art of Living) for nearly 5 years. I joined the Reigate team after finishing a contract working as chef/stewardess on a private yacht for a couple of years. I’ve had lots of previous vocations in my life from stage manager to actor and then I was offered the chance to do a Cordon Bleu course and travel with my partner, Andi who was captain of said yacht. He now also works for Art of Living. I love cooking and I relish the chance to share knowledge with customers in the shop.
