But first, there was Kelly before having my children. There was little ol' me off to university with visions of looking like Elle Woods (yes I'm an 80s baby), and walking out after four years into the shiniest job available.
Boy, did I have a lot to learn because yes I had a degree in International Marketing but I was off into the marketing world before Instagram (gasp) and Snapchat was just an app to share d***k pics.
Yup I was going to learn the hard way of the world of digital marketing and it exploded whilst I was on the job. My degree gave me all the work ethic but none of the experience.
So out into the world, I went working for an array of different businesses and agencies. From film, hospitality, wedding. sport, tech to the most recent Cyber Security.
ZEST FOR LIFE
A bit cliché, but I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for having my kids.
I love my job as a CMO and as a team what we have achieved. I love pulling all the elements together and what we built.
But, I have always had a restless feeling, and got a coach, which she quickly identified that my job wasn't serving my WHY.
So I found my WHY... I want to share all I have learned to help.
I coach Career Savvy mums to find their why and grow their business.
To conquer the challenges holding them back, master their marketing and build the business of their dreams.
Giving them an identity of more than being "just mum", the tools to have an amazing career, and the flexibility to work around their family.
I honestly feel this is the best time for Mums to build something of their own. It might be to change their career, make their passion a business, or an idea they have been sitting on while being home with the kids - but if they want something more this is the time to do it!!
THE MARKETING MENTOR
Was established by.... accident. I found I was always giving advice, to anyone who wanted it, building their own businesses. Especially my husband who knew nothing about marketing. During my second maternity leave (lockdown of 20/21) I learned that what I really missed was the human connection and I wanted to support and mentor. Especially at lockdown everyone reassessed and decided what was important to them.
So now I let my creative juices flow in a different way to my day job. by mentoring mums, helping them grow, smash their business goals and become masters at marketing. When I’m not working, mentoring, and being a mum, you’ll find me hanging out with my husband, nose in a good book, enjoying long walks with the dog, working out & appreciating the good things in life.
