Who we are

We are currently a team of two very passionate VA’s who between us have racked up over 45 years of experience – that’s a lot! Find out more about us below.

Lisa Jefferies (VA & Boss)
With over 20 years of experience, Lisa kind of fell into owning her own business. She has previously worked as a PA, EA, Office Manager, Event Manager and Studio Manager in multiple sectors (including pharma, hospitality, property, motor, law, design and heritage). This makes her one hell of a versatile member of your team with a great understanding of business in general.

More about Lisa…

Yep, I have 2 cats and they are my babies – Willow, 5 and Luna, 2. I speak to them like kids because trust me, they act like them!

Fav Food?
Most definitely Italian. Oh, and Mexican. Oooooo and I quite like Thai. Ok, so I just like food full stop. Lol.

Fav Cocktail?
Are you kidding, I have to pick ONE? Not gonna happen! So top 3 are, Mojito, Pornstar Martini and an English Garden (or a Bramble… or maybe a Bellini). Ok, so I like my cocktails as much as I like my food. Don’t judge!

Fav Job?
This one! Don’t get me wrong, the 50hr-60hr weeks are tough, but I love it. I love the variety, I love my clients and I love that I get to spend more time at home with my fur babies.

Karen Jefferson (VA)
With over 25 years of experience, Karen has a solid history of Executive Assistant roles, working closely with CEO’s of national charities. Karen has also dabbled in facilities management and would you believe it if we told you that she also used to be a chef and a professional cake maker. She’s even had a couple of recipes published.

Well I guess I have a cat – I woke up one morning and there he was just laying on the end of my bed. I have since started sleeping with the window closed! His name is Bruno and it was love at first site.

Memorable Moment?
Taking a mud bath and having a water fight with a couple of Asian elephants at the most beautiful sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Fav Holiday?
You know what, I have been lucky enough to have some amazing holidays and I have travelled to some beautiful countries – but my absolute favourite holidays have actually been right here in North Yorkshire. Being a southerner (no jokes please), my family used to spend many staycations in the Dales, surrounded by breathtaking scenery and just enjoying each other’s company. I feel like this paragraph should be accompanied by some dramatic music. Lol

Fav Cocktail?
I don’t drink! Ok, that’s a lie, but there are too many to pick from. Generally anything rum based.
