As a Virtual Assistant in Durban, I am super organised, reliable, enthusiastic and enjoy ticking off my to do list. I can do all your background work while you concentrate on your business and have work free weekends.

Are you missing new leads and business as you are not able to answer your emails fast enough? Do you need an extra hand at the end of the month? Are you finding you spend weekends working instead of spending the time with your family? Do you need help scheduling your social media posts?

 I have 8 years of Virtual Assistant experience both local to South Africa and International. I am organised and reliable to get the job done on time. I assist small business to free up time to focus on building your business and shine with your clients while I take care of the background work.

Joanna was employed at South African Lifeguard Corporation as Administrator from 2013 to 2019. I can confirm that Joanna was diligent employee and performed above my expectations, especially as her duties where performed remotely from my operations base. I have no hesitation in recommending Joanna to handle administrative duties as she goes above and beyond.
