I grew up in a small town near Frankfurt in Germany. In 1990 I certified as Bilingual Secretary and worked as Executive Assistant for a small family run engineering business before I moved to London in 2000. I enjoyed living and working in London and worked as Personal Assistant for a global commercial property investment management company where I supported a team of two directors and five surveyors. The role was demanding in a fast-paced office environment and I liked working with multinationals, liaising with European offices, organising worldwide travel and using my German mother tongue. However, after fifteen years of living and working in London and having a young family, it was time to fulfil my dream to live by the seaside.
My Values and Work Ethics
I set up my Virtual Assistant business in 2017 after moving from London to Bournemouth. I wanted to be more flexible and spend more time with my family so setting up my own business was the perfect option. I knew I had the skills and experience to support business owners as a freelance Personal Assistant.
I enjoy working with small businesses and the variety of work that comes with it. My work is interesting and no job or day is the same. I love helping my clients achieve their goals and make their work life easier. I achieve that in working closely with them and implementing more efficient work processes to save them time. My support is as individual as my clients’ business and I am flexible to adapt to their needs and requirements. The most rewarding part of my work is making a difference to my clients, contributing to their success and helping them grow their business.
When I am not working
I like to spend family time outdoors and explore the countryside. I’m a creative person and like to sew my own soft furnishings, clothes and gifts, upcycle furniture and create interesting spaces in my home.
