VA's Name:Wendy Gregory
Business Name:Twillit Virtual Solutions
I am an experienced business owner with over 30 years of administrative experience and operational management. My roles in government, oil and gas, construction and healthcare all required exceptional skill and attention to detail.
After working for the UK Government and spending some time as an executive assistant for a project manager at Shell UK, my husband and I started a construction business installing suspended ceilings, drywall partitions and raised access flooring. We specialized in MRI/PET scanner rooms for the National Health Service. We had a successful business for over 18 years. We went through and survived two recessions before selling it and emigrating to Canada. My husband ran the construction sites and I managed the office, finances, payroll, bookkeeping, hiring and project management.
In Canada, I was employed as an administrative assistant supporting the Executive Director for a non-profit healthcare organization for 8 years. In this position, I was responsible for bookkeeping, payroll, recruitment, HR, budgets, IT, EMR installation, liaising with municipal government funders and office management.
In April 2018, I decided to leave my position in healthcare and started my own business working from home. I completed a 4-month intern to learn all about digital marketing and social media management. It was time to go back to doing what I do best and share my knowledge and experience of running my own successful business to help small business owners and entrepreneurs that are struggling to deal with everyday business tasks.
Businesses can easily fail if they are not run efficiently and need processes and procedures in place to survive and this is where my skills, experience and knowledge help. As a pragmatic problem solver, I believe there is always a way to reach an objective. We simply need to work together to find a way that works for you.
I have an organized and systematic working style as well as years of experience and will provide you the opportunity to free yourself from the daily grind of business administration, so that you can concentrate on what you do best and continue to grow and develop your business. I consider myself as a friendly, approachable person that is always willing to help and gets on well with anyone.
I am a life-long learner and am continually investing in my personal development to ensure I have the latest skills and software knowledge, that helps me and you in our businesses stay current.
