Expertise

Having gained skills which are transferable, I can offer you assistance with most aspects of daily living, such as:
food preparation, household tasks, light gardening, socialising, going for walks, days out, reading, films, shopping trips, company, crosswords, card games, arts and crafts, helping with paperwork/filing, helping with your animals/pets...
and more unusually I can offer you: Italian conversation, anything equestrian, and therapeutic foot massage.
If there's something you need help with and it's not listed here, then please get in touch as I may still be able to help you.
Adaptability, creative thinking, a 'can do' attitude, a friendly, kind and positive outlook with excellent communication and listening skills, common sense, integrity and a sense of humour are the qualities I can offer you as your PA.
Please note: I am particularly interested in helping the older members (50+) of our community.

Experience

I have worked and lived abroad and experienced different cultures.
Working in the equestrian industry for many years (in the UK and abroad) where a high level of training and organisation was required.
I also worked in the retail industry for about 10 years in London, managing a variety of outlets. All posts required staff/stock management and excellent customer care skills.
In 1998 motherhood created an opportunity for change, and after training with the British Council in Milan I taught English as a Foreign Language from home and in local schools, to children and adults, for about 10 years.
I returned to the UK in 2005 (after 10 years in Italy) where I re-trained as a reflexologist.This therapy is very beneficial to the elderly and associated symptoms of ageing. I have also treated clients with Motor Neurone Disease; reflexology helped them cope during this frightening and challenging time. It was an honour to be a part of their deeply personal journey...
I have also been cleaning private homes since January 2012 and I am a key-holder to most of my clients.
You may be wondering how some of the experiences I have gained can be relevant to a PA role, but most, if not all, are transferable skills.
