You know that creating consistent content and having your back-end systems organised is crucial for your business growth. However...

You often feel overwhelmed by admin tasks piling up and the missed opportunities because you didn't have time to get that content out.

You might experience that nagging feeling of guilt because, well, your content output doesn't seem to hit the 'enough' mark. Cue the guilt trip.

Fun Facts about me..


















I'm a 3/5 Manifesting Generator in Human Design.A Scorpio Sun, Scorpio Rising, Virgo Moon in Astrology. And a Master Number 33 in Numerology. 


I've lived in seven cities across four countries: I was born in New Zealand, moved to Gold Coast, Aus after university in my early 20s, and learned Spanish while later living in Barcelona. After returning to Melbourne, Aus for five years and spending some time in Calgary, Canada, I currently reside in Hawkes Bay New Zealand with my 3 year old son and Canadian/Chilean husband. 


You'll find me on holiday: In the Spanish Islands, Bali, Italy, or Greece.​I'm a podcast junkie: In high rotation - The Aubrey Marcus Podcast, It's Not What You Think (Celinne de la Costa), The Human Design Podcast (Day Luna) & Jess Williamson: The Podcast​I'm a morning person: I love rising early, doing yoga, journalling, or EFT tapping while sipping on hot cocao.​


My background: I'm a university-educated Town Planner, turned corporate Executive Assistant, turned Virtual Assistant. I've studied copywriting and sales psychology with Wordfetti Copywriting House and started my first business in holistic health in 2021 before launching full time into my Virtual Assistant business in 2022. Later this year I'm enrolled to study an EFT tapping course in order to become an EFT tapping coach! 


My most memorable life moment: Was at a camping festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in the US, when my now husband managed to misplace our car keys (right in the middle of our 2-week road trip from Canada). As if that wasn't enough adventure, our air mattress deflated on the first night, which lead us to having to leave to purchase a new one. Then, our original mattress, left at camp as a communal couch, turned into a spontaneous bonfire while we were walking to the festival venue. But wait, it gets better! Later that very same day, amidst all the chaos, Diego pops the question—and, well, I obviously said YES! 💍It's safe to say, there's never a dull moment in our house!​P.S. Oh, by the way, we did eventually track down the car keys and our upgraded shiny new air mattress lasted the rest of our road trip adventure.


I'll have your back:

 When it comes to working with me, you’ll have the feeling that there’s always someone who’s got your back. Someone you can depend on, that truly cares about you, and the success of your business. I'm here to support you on this journey. There are no silly questions!

I'm true to my word:

I'll keep you updated, and you never have to feel like you have to second guess. I’ll be asking you questions – and you don’t have to be afraid to ask questions, I'll meet you where you're at!

I'm outcome-driven. Progress is always measured and check-ins happen regularly. I ensure that our work is to a standard I'd create for ourselves.


I'm a good human:

Being a good human is about listening not just speaking. It’s about doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. It’s about taking the time to understand the person I'm speaking with. Being empathetic, being transparent, being honest and open, and doing what I say I will.

I'm curious and authentic:

I'll always be always asking questions, trying to get to the heartbeat of the story. I'm real, trustworthy, honest, down to earth, friendly, humble, genuine and approachable.

We can have a laugh, there is no judgment, you are able to just be you. Nothing is too hard!
