I am Sharné (shar-nay) the creative entrepreneur, System Analyst and Strategist behind Admin by (wait for it) Sharné!

I am a South African living in the UK with my husband and I love that our new home allows me to bring the vibrancy of my place of birth to a global marketplace. I really love my country but I have come to call this place, home.

I geek out over pretty stationery and have a planner for everything! Most of my methods are self-taught and derived from a long career in the service industry. If you close your eyes right now and think of a client facing role – l have probably been there and done that! Now that l have my own business, it’s probably just as well. You never know how a holiday job or 10 years building someone else’s dream will serve you in future. No matter the long hours and salty tears, every opportunity prepares you for greatness. And my little biz is just that!

“ System should work for you and not work you.”

So you are probably still scratching your head and wondering what a System Analyst and Strategist does… Right?

Well, I am the person who uses analysis and design techniques to solve business problems using information technology. Systems analysts may serve as change agents who identify the organizational improvements needed, design systems to implement those changes, and train and motivate others to use the systems.
