Take a peek into her daily life here!

Kelly is a sports massage and remedial therapist and owner of SMART Massage. She assists the council with JCI projects and recently attended the JCI UK Marketing Academy.

There is no such thing as a typical day in my job! I am a human and equine sports massage therapist and run my own business, SMART Massage. 

The three services I offer are a mobile equine sports massage service, a weekly human sports massage clinic and corporate massage service. My weekly clinic, held on a Tuesday, is a regular event in my diary. The rest of my time is spent maintaining client relationships, business development, and marketing and PR. Being flexible is key!

With a mixed background in both health and social care and horse care, my business originally started with just equine massage services. However, I quickly realised that, for my business to grow, I needed to diversify into the human massage market too. 

I really enjoy the two different sides to my business as it allows me to continue my passion of working with horses, but also provides me with the enjoyment I get from working with people. I am really proud of what I have achieved and my career highlight so far is definitely starting my own business!

I have been a member of JCI for just over a year, and my life has definitely changed for the better since joining. I have learnt skills to build my business, not just from the workshops and speakers, but from other members too.

I have built a fantastic network of friends and have been part of some brilliant projects and events including quiz nights, volunteering at Cambridge Beer Festival, travelling to Germany and Belfast and skydiving for Arthur Rank! I also recently went to Birmingham with the marketing team to learn about how to effectively communicate with our members. I also can’t wait to visit Monte Carlo for the European Conference in May!
