Rachel Woodall – Founder

After leaving school with under achieved grades I found myself in jobs I didn’t enjoy that were not going anywhere. With the encouragement of friends I moved to London in my early 20’s to pursue a career in TV as a TV presenter training at the London TV and film academy with a professional show reel! It was going so well, I landed myself a role on an online London TV show appeared on TV shows and also landed myself some cat walk modelling to earn some extra cash.

I then met Jordan and fell pregnant with my first daughter which led me back to Leeds and putting my career on hold. I enjoyed Family life so much and realised I had a massive passion and appreciation for children no just mine but all children. I loved everything about being a mum and still do, which led me to having my second beautiful daughter. When I was about to go on Maternity leave last year I was made redundant and separated from Jordan.

Throughout this I had already decided to start up my own business and this has kept me going. I attended the Princes trust course in February which after meetings and 3 months of business planning they decided to financially back by business which I will forever be grateful for. On the 9th of July my Messy Sensory business started its journey and I am so excited to start this amazing rewarding chapter of my life.
