I’m a virtual assistant based in Northern Johannesburg

I’m here to take care of those time-consuming, but necessary, tasks that you cannot get to:

  • General admin such as filing, email inbox cleanups, creating PowerPoint presentations and proposals
  • Basic bookkeeping – scanning that mountain of receipts and getting your Sage One accounting system up to date
  • Online Marketing and Social media Management– setting up and managing Google Adwords and social media accounts
  • Writing and editing – editing proposals and reports, writing blog posts
  • Basic website design – creating basic websites in WordPress

I have 20 years’ experience in marketing and admin and have worked on a variety of projects for clients in different industries. I started out as a marketing assistant for a financial services company where I worked for 14 years. This was a very admin-intensive role with many deadlines which involved a lot of planning and co-ordinating. In 2013, I started my own digital marketing consultancy, working with small business owners to help them set up their online presence. In 2016, my husband and I started a software development business where I was involved with the admin side of the business. I now combine my admin and marketing experience to help companies with their online marketing and admin needs.

I work meticulously and diligently, and I am focused on saving you time and helping your business operate more efficiently. I endeavour to learn as much about your company as possible, as quickly as possible and become a trusted resource for your team.
