Holly Smothers - Marketing & Communications Manager & Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
Since Holly can remember her health has been a priority for her. She has continually seen the profound impact taking care of her body with nutrition, movement, rest, and strength-building can have on her overall health and daily life.
Holly was drawn to the marketing position at Elite because it gives her the opportunity to spread awareness about the impact that Physical Therapy can have on people’s overall life. She believes that if you can move well and without pain, you will have the strength and confidence to conquer anything life throws your way.
Holly particularly liked the environment and approach Elite has with patients, and their viewpoint that each person that walks through the door is different, and therefore should be treated accordingly.
The Physical Therapists provide individualized care to each patient, with undivided attention. She believes nutrition should be approached in the same way, as there is no “perfect, one-size-fits-all diet.”
The therapists are also knowledgeable beyond anything she has experienced. Beyond that, the company itself is the “Ideal Business” she always learned about in business school, and says that the camaraderie between all staff members is incomparable.
HOLLY SPECIALIZES IN:
- Digital Marketing & Communications
- Event Coordination & Planning
- Developing Dietary Changes For The Long-term
- Women’s Health & Hormonal Balance
GET TO KNOW HOLLY:
Holly was born and raised in Lake Saint Louis, MO. Growing up she played soccer, basketball, ran track, was a competitive water skier, and participated in private gymnastics lessons for fun.
She not only loves playing sports of all kinds, but also loves to watch them. With a front-row preference, she decided to try-out for the high school cheerleading team and fell in love with it. After high school she continued her cheerleading career at Mizzou!
After graduating from Mizzou in 2015, Holly did not want to go home but didn’t want to move too far away so she chose to accept an internship at at Marketing Agency in Kansas City. During this time she fell completely in love with Kansas City, especially the Crossroads area. A month later she was hired on Full Time as a Project Manager, where she worked for 2.5 years.
After experiencing some health complications, Holly decided to move back to St. Louis for a year while making a career change to help individuals improve their health and overall lives starting with nutrition. She began working part time at Elite as a Marketing Coordinator, while completing a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) certification. Upon completion, Holly and her rescue pup, Goji, moved back to Kansas City to work full-time at Elite as the Marketing Coordinator and NTP.
Her favorite things about Kansas City are all of the unique areas (especially the Crossroads), the awesome farmers markets, numerous local events, local gyms/studios & healthy food joints, and of course, Kansas City SPORTS (except when the Royals are playing the Cardinals)!
When Holly is not working, she stays busy spending time with friends, working out, walking her dog, watching sports, traveling, hiking, water skiing, or creating masterpieces in the kitchen, especially healthy dessert alternatives.
Be sure to introduce yourself to Holly next time you are at Elite, and tell her your favorite joke. Also, keep an eye out in our newsletters and on social media for recipes and health tips!
