I have over eighteen years’ experience as a UK-based executive assistant and office manager, twelve of those years within the coaching and consultancy sectors, and have been working remotely for my clients for over seven years. I have particular expertise in supporting executive coaches and organisational consultants run their businesses as efficiently as possible. However, my skills translate well across many business sectors.
From traditional PA responsibilities such as diary and email management, PowerPoint design, and expenses processing, through to data analytics, branding and website design, I provide a broad range of services.
I have many years experience of running large-scale psychometric surveys for coaching and consultancy clients, including tailored report generation and bespoke survey & report design. Surveys I am familiar with include 360 Degree Feedback, NEO PIR, the Hogan Development Survey, MVPI, FIRO-B, MBTI, Belbin, the Work Interests Schedule, and the Influencing Styles Questionnaire among others. I am also well versed in interrogating raw survey data to provide clients with more in-depth analysis and reporting.

I am conscientious, well-spoken, articulate and have an analytical brain, which allows me to turn my hand to most projects. I have a master’s degree (1st class honours) in Modern History from the University of St Andrews and am TEFL certified. I am an accredited member of the Association for Professional Virtual Assistants, one of the leading organisations for professional Virtual Assistants, a community member of the Society of Virtual Assistants and a member of the Squarespace Circle.
