About Me

Why hello there! Let me introduce myself so that you may know who this Miss Melly, Virtual Assistant extraordinaire is!

I am Melissa, or Mel if you like. I have a soft spot for:

  • T2 tea (yes, even in summer – that’s why there’s a thing called iced tea!),

  • animals (I may or may not have multiple cats and a gorgeous black woofing beauty, Olivia),

  • am hugely passionate about life-long learning both for work and in my personal life,

  • and have an avid interest in holistic therapies (I share my experiences with a tribe of busy mums trying to keep it together through my own blog and Instagram pages).

I have spent a large portion of my life working in education (primary, tertiary, consultancy), with a sabbatical working in our family’s small business.  It was there that I began my journey into social media management, and digital marketing.  

Given my love for holistic therapies, love of writing and life-long learning, it’s hardly surprising I developed my own blog and tribe online, where I get to refine my skills and learn the best hacks for social media management! I have my own casual, chatty style but also write highly effective strongly-worded letters and submissions suitable for parliament and executives when required).  I have developed my copywriting skills through further study.

As you’ve probably already gathered, my specialties in the VA world are social media management, digital marketing and writing (copy and content - blog).  Creating and/or looking after your social media accounts to give your business the edge and stay in the online game, writing (content or copy) for these or your blog or website, email marketing and online courses - I'm here!  I’m here to look after these tasks that you would much rather blink and miss – so that you can get back to working IN your business, not ON it.

Miss Melly!
