Get to Know Me
I have always had an interest in health and fitness since joining a swimming club around age 10. However, initially I went to university and then worked for BT in commercial management, doing market research, marketing and then business planning and strategy, which is where I studied marketing at evening classes. I eventually took voluntary redundancy and re-trained as a personal trainer, class instructor, and swimming instructor and started working in the industry that I am passionate about. I worked full time in the industry, and then part-time alongside office work and then starting a family.
I evolved as an instructor to focus on yoga and pilates, and also started to practice mindfulness. I often share information about anxiety, depression and stress as I have been there myself and want to make these topics more acceptable to talk about.
I am currently studying for a Diploma in Physical Activity & Mental Health as Lockdown gave me the ability to train with a top provider online.
Why have I set up this business?
For the last seven years I have been splitting my time between Gran Canaria and the UK and so have found it difficult to maintain a business in either country. So the logical thing to do was to find a job which uses as many of my skills as possible whilst being location independent; hence setting myself up as a Virtual Assistant, using my administration and marketing skills, targeting the industries I am most familiar with. This has proved useful in the current scenario, as I have always worked remotely and was able to continue supporting my client base.
I love to help people, and also realise that as a person’s business expands, often they have to take on tasks that are outside their comfort zone. My aim is to help my clients do what they do best and support them to grow their business by filling in the gaps in knowledge and experience in a cost effective and time efficient manner.
