"You can do anything but not everything!"

David Allen

A Virtual Assistant is an extra pair of hands when you need it! Your own Miss Moneypenny on the other side of a Skype call or email!

Do you find yourself juggling ongoing tasks you have to perform every month to support and promote your business?

Are you feeling overwhelmed with an ever-growing TODO list and only one pair of hands to do it all?

You don’t have to wear all the different hats and do it all yourself anymore!

…Maggie was extremely helpful, and did the work needed with efficiency and patience. It really felt that no job was too small nor any question too daft …

I contacted Maggie at Red Dog VA to help create my new website after a change in provider. I already had a theme in place but with Maggie’s knowledge of WordPress, she suggested and sourced an alternative theme which better suited my needs and requirements.

Hi, I’m Maggie and I’m called Red Dog VA after our gorgeous collie, Rusty, who sits by my feet and keeps me company while I’m working.

I feel so lucky that I can walk my son to school, take our dog out for a walk on the beautiful Surrey Hills, and come home energised and ready to focus.

What's my story?

I have a wealth of experience from over 17 years working in Admin and Executive PA roles. Details can be found on my LinkedIn profile.

I’m naturally organised and enjoy juggling priorities and ticking off admin tasks but I’ve always felt drawn to the more creative tasks like video editing.

I love learning and am constantly updating my skills so I can offer my clients more value and manage my time more effectively.

I first dabbled in WordPress website editing and design in 2015, while working as a VA for an online agency, and found that I enjoy the whole process, from initial keyword research through to designing content and website creation.

One of the benefits of working from home is that I can work with music on! During the day you can find me listening to anything from classical and light jazz in the background through to blues and rock, depending on the work I’m doing.

Away from work, music is a real passion of mine and I’ve been singing ever since I can remember! I joined my local church choir when I was at Primary School and have since performed with bands, in the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch and have sung with my husband since 2006 at weddings, parties, events and the odd festival.

I bought a MAD Academy pre-school music and dance franchise when my son was young and had a wonderful six years sharing my love of music with pre-school children and their parents. That fantastic experience gave me the confidence and drive to start my own business and Red Dog VA is the result.
