I bring 14 years of behind-the-scenes competence, intelligence and unparalleled ability to get things done to your business campfire (oh, and let’s not forget my quirky sense of humour).
Not only can you hand key projects off to me and trust they’ll get done right, I can also host your next group call, come up with snappy headlines for your social media, and speak to your potential clients in your inimitable style. ‘Cuz that’s what I do.
By age 27, I was well on my way to a successful and fulfilling career as an operations manager in the banking industry. I’d held roles in administration, sales, and even fraud investigation. At the same time, I’d been cutting my teeth as a bookkeeper and tax preparer.
(My secret sauce to getting all this work experience on the fast track? Temping. I took any and every assignment my agency threw at me. Clearly, it worked.)
But I’d always dreamed of owning my own business.
(When I was a wee lass, still living in Scotland, I didn’t play house – I played business. Funnily enough, I pretended to run a business that helped other businesses. I called it the Agency For Anything.)
In 2011, I finally had that opportunity to open my own business. It started out as bookkeeping and tax preparation, then lead into virtual administrative services.
After a couple of years, I began to notice a common thread with my clients: one of their main challenges, as they evolved from “start ups” to established businesses, was navigating the intricacies of online marketing.
They knew that social media and email marketing were vital to growing their businesses, but they no longer had the time or the inclination to figure out how to do it themselves. That’s where I stepped in, learning everything there is to know about marketing strategy and how to represent my clients’ brands online.
Fast forward 6 years later, and I now serve my clients as their strategic advisor, executing special projects that grow their businesses. Through our work together, I create the perfect blend of security, stability, freedom, and creativity.
And as much as I love what I do, my life isn’t all about work. I love to travel, especially with my beautiful wife, Cheryl.
And my Thursday nights are sacred – ain’t nobody getting between me and my Grey’s!
