Hello, I'm Karen...


With over twenty years of experience as an Executive Assistant and a Personal Assistant, I have enhanced my skills across various industries, working in organisations both large and small.


My thirst for knowledge is unending, and I continuously seek to improve on my expertise in administrative processes and technology.

I have a passion for empowering business owners across Australia.

This experience has equipped me with a deep understanding of the intricacies of business operations and the challenges faced by business owners.

My commitment extends beyond my immediate location, offering support to businesses nation-wide. I take pride in my ability to work remotely, ensuring that my assistance is not limited by geography. My goal is to help other businesses thrive, leveraging my expertise to foster growth and success within the vibrant community of Australian entrepreneurs. Whether it's through strategic planning, operational support, or simply sharing lessons from my own journey, I am dedicated to seeing every business I touch achieve its greatest potential.
