Time to meet and hopefully get inspired by another one of our local mums in business. We’ve interviewed Kelly who is the co-founder of Seaside Creative, a marketing agency in Lancing.
Tell us about you and your family
I’m a 47-year-old married mum of two kids both at secondary school. I like running (when I’m not injured), cooking (massive roasts are a speciality) and I sing in a band as a hobby (the Soulsmiths – find us on Facebook!)
Are you originally from Worthing?
Yes – I moved away for 10 years but gradually moved back closer and closer over that time. I’m glad I’m bringing my family up here now.
Beach or South Downs?
South downs first – then run downhill to the beach!
Tell us an unusual fact about yourself
I played women’s rugby and captained Sussex for 3 seasons
If you could spend the day with any celebrity or historical figure who would it be?
Err, so many to choose from! Elizabeth 1st maybe or Nancy Astor, or perhaps just sitting in Abbey Road with the Beatles.
Finally, tell us about your business, why you started and what drives you on?
My business is Seaside Creative Ltd. It’s a marketing agency that offers everything to help companies get themselves out there. We build websites, run social media for clients and have in-house photography and video expertise, plus we have many years PR and advertising experience too. What we’re most proud of is winning 13 business awards in the last 5 years for various clients. We basically love making clients happy and keeping them that way is what drives us.
Kelly is one of the founders of Seaside Creative, a marketing agency based in Lancing. When she’s not working, she loves to make jam, sing, run and spend time with her husband, children and guinea pigs. She’s also an Executive Committee Member of the Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce.
