How I became an Online Business Manager

 Like a lot of female-led businesses, I started VAS because I loved my work, but not the hours away from home.

Over 15+ years in the corporate world, I’d worked alongside leaders in a range of industries – accounting, education, finance and retail. And I was a *darn* good Executive Assistant. I loved helping Directors and business owners to succeed – and I loved the rush of being the secret agent getting things done behind the scenes.

When I started a family, I knew it was time. I started Virtual Associate Services to help business owners who make a difference to others.

And I absolutely love it!
