I grew up in a military household, where I started ironing from an early age and during school holidays often earned pocket money by ironing for mothers on the barracks.  I went to school in Wokingham, I’m a mother of two, have two step children and live in Banbury.


The Smartipants concept was created when both my children were toddlers and I needed a job that would enable me to work around them.  As they grew older and were in full time school I was able to launch Smartipants into a business that has continued to grow and develop onto a professional level.


I started Smartipants from home in 2001, in the lounge, to fit around school hours and several of my first customers are still using us today.  I have seen their children come into the world and grow up too.


The business soon outgrew the house and we converted the garage to create the space we needed for our team of ladies to join us.  We then moved to a converted double garage and then finally in 2014 our first business premises on Beaumont Business Centre.  This really changed my perspective of Smartipants and was the point that I really felt it became its own business as our customers were able to drop into us rather than us being hidden away.


We are a family run business; my son, Zach drives for us, you will see him on the road in one of our vans, and my daughter Madi deals with the accounts and administrative tasks, as well as helping within the unit.  Karen & Daniela work within the unit and have been with us for the last 8 years.

We hope to continue growing and providing a professional and high quality service for our customers.
