Being a newbie around here, I thought I should introduce myself.
I’m Emilie and I live in a little village called Sawtry with my fiancé Chris.
What I’m up to at the moment: I’ve recently set up Ashwood VA and I am currently at the famous ‘looking for my first client’ stage. I’m also at the final stages of @AmandaJohnson VACT Mastery Course, which has been incredible! I’ve loved my journey so far, and I can’t wait to crack on with helping and supporting some clients.
Where I’ve come from: I graduated with a Bachelor of Laws and went on to work in a Conveyancing firm. I had many-a-role there, including case manager, office-wide admin support and locum for the senior case managers. I loved supporting my clients and colleagues, but it came at a price - I was permanently exhausted, working far too many hours and not looking after my own wellbeing (not that I realised any of that at the time!) My redundancy was a blessing in disguise. I took it as an opportunity to re-evaluate and make some positive changes in my life.
I can honestly say I have never been happier. I am really looking forward to experiencing the ups and downs of being a VA. I can’t wait to get to know you all and become part of your wonderful community.
