Emma Sanford


I have over 30 years experience in administrative, PA, VA and Office Manager roles and have worked with a PR Executive in the media sector, I ran the virtual UK office of an American Certified Public Accountant looking after their 2000+ UK clients, a marketing professional, a well-renowned arboricultural consultancy practice, an architect and many more.

Dependable, proficient, honest and dedicated, as your Virtual Assistant (VA), I can deliver a wide variety of administrative responsibilities which would otherwise take up your valuable time.  Shouldering some of this responsibility to an assistant who can take over the day to day running of your business leaves you to concentrate on growing your business.

In an era where everyone has a PC, it is less common to have one to one access to a PA.  The means some business owners can no longer rely on an experienced assistant and have to cobble reports together while struggling with their typing and balancing all their other tasks.  I can take all these admin nightmares away for you, ensure you maintain excellent standards of presentation, and allow you to look after your hard won clients.
Understanding the importance of going the extra mile, I will never just do the minimum to get the job done.

Based in Dorset, I am a Fellow of the Executive and Personal Assistants Association (EPAA), a newly formed professional national body to champion, support and encourage EAs, PAs and VAs across the UK.  I am also an approved member of the Society of Virtual Assistants and attend networking and PA events along the South coast.
