I’m a virtual assistant based in Northern Johannesburg

I take care of those time-consuming, but necessary tasks you cannot get to.  I specialise in digital marketing support but also offer general admin services.

Here’s what I can do to make your life easier:

  • Digital marketing and social media management– setting up and managing Google Ads (I am Google Ads certified) and social media accounts
  • Writing and editing – editing proposals and reports, writing blog posts
  • Basic website design – creating basic websites in WordPress
  • General admin such as electronic filing, creating PowerPoint presentations and proposals
  • Basic bookkeeping – electronic filing of receipts and getting your Sage One accounting system up to date

I have 20 years’ experience in marketing and admin and have worked on a variety of projects for clients in different industries. I began my career as a marketing assistant for a financial services company. This was an admin-intensive role with many deadlines involving a lot of planning and coordinating. After 14 years, I developed an interest in digital marketing and decided that this would be the next chapter in my career.  I started my own digital marketing consultancy, helping small business owners set up their online presence. In 2016, my husband and I started a software development business where I was responsible for the admin side of the business. I now work as a virtual assistant, offering marketing and administrative support to busy people like you.

I help you save time and take control of the daily tasks that prevent you from focusing on other important responsibilities. I am thorough and take pride in what I do and treat your business as if it were my own. Feel free to download my CV and contact me. I look forward to working with you!
