This week we ‘Spotlight on’ Michelle Kelly our Accounts Manager Assistant
Hi there, I am Michelle, and I am the newest member of the Pro-Stretch UK team.
I initially started working for Pro-Mask, working from home during lock down, and I was responsible for processing the orders.
Pro-Mask is a sub brand of Pro-Stretch, specialising in reusable face coverings and filters for adults and kids, for more information and our full range of Pro-Mask face coverings see HERE
This was a challenging time, as I was also home schooling my 8 year old daughter. As time has progressed I am now based in the office, which is a lot easier, as we can all be together, and work alongside each other.
My recent background is in customer service and order processing, but I once worked for a soft toy manufacturer as a PA to 2 sales managers.
I have also worked for a travel insurance company, I started in the call centre then progressed to the claims processing department, and finally worked as a team leader dealing with medical assistance cases. This included dealing with cases where people have been ill or had an accident on holiday…I dealt with some interesting cases.
I love foreign travel and have been to many different countries including Australia, Barbados, Mauritius and Iceland.
My favourite place has to be New York (I’ve been twice) as I love to shop and sight see.
A little bit more about me…
I studied for a degree in Religious Studies/Social Ethics as I am really interested in different cultures and beliefs. I also enjoy interior design and choosing decorative items for my home.
I have been married since 2009 and I have an 8 year old daughter, I also have 3 grown up step children.
My husband and I used to run our own online business selling kite surfing equipment; he is a keen kite surfer.
My dream job would to be a personal shopper, as I love shopping, and I also love to see people happy when they find the perfect item.
So what does the future hold for Pro-Stretch?
Michelle says “Pro-Stretch have exciting plans ahead: Launching our new sub brand Pro-Mask, expanding into Vietnam, and working with more brands means we are busier than ever. The future looks bright and busy with Pro-Stretch Trims International!”
