About me

I started my Virtual Assistant business in 2018 after I took voluntary redundancy from the Met Police. I’d worked for the Police for 26 years in a number of different roles but the option of redundancy gave me the opportunity to re-evaluate my life. I was excited to try a new challenge.

I had always worked in roles that helped people, either as a PA to the Borough Commander, or the Commissioners strategic meeting secretary, or in Human Resources and resource management. That is where my skills lie best which is why I decided the Virtual Assistant’s role was ideal for me.

My strengths

  • Resilience in a high-pressured environment
  • Highly organised & efficient with excellent planning skills
  • Clear communication and highly developed interpersonal skills
  • Creative and innovative thinker with excellent problem-solving skills
  • Excellent time management skills
  • Keen to learn new skills

Why you should work with me…

There are many people offering business admin solutions. The most important factor to consider in hiring a Virtual Assistant is that they have the skills to perform the task you require. I regularly participate in online training to develop my skills and try new technology to ensure I am match-fit for working for your business.

If you are still sceptical about working with a VA, my blog should provide some help. If you would like to contact me to discuss how I can make your life just a little bit easier, please email admin@katrinasummerfield.com.
