During time spent driving a number of UAE model industry organisations Kelly also spearheaded the successful establishment of a startup agency, before deciding to branch out with her own entity - Lush Group ME.
Having worked diligently to make a name for herself as a confident, fair and efficient model booker and agency manager, Kelly has built an impressive portfolio of clients, who have loyally followed her between organisations and remain with her today - thanks largely to her integrity and hands-on approach, which can be a prized commodity in the industry.
Learning from her diverse experiences within the industry, Kelly has now established an organisation which is set to become one of the leading agencies of its kind in the Gulf and she is focused upon differentiating Lush Group ME from competitors in new and meaningful ways.
