Introducing Marion Jackson
I am an accomplished Executive Assistant with the organisational ability, initiative, natural flair and an eye for detail needed to assist you and your company with your day-to-day requirements.
With 26 years relevant work experience I will combine my strong all-round office skills with plenty of energy to do what it takes to ensure your assignments are completed efficiently and on time.
My employment history spans two years in the Retirement Industry; two years in Infrastructure Maintenance; four years in the Prestige Motor Vehicle Industry and four years in the Commercial Real Estate Industry. I also spent 14 years in the Travel Industry, mostly as a Senior Consultant, taking care of Corporate Travel arrangements; as well as airport ground crew for an American airline and as a supervisor for Air New Zealand AirPoints frequent flyer program.
On top of all that, I have experience in marketing, branding and website creation and I've also completed a Diploma of Professional Interior Design with The Interior Design Academy.
I launched 'My Virtual Assistant' on 13 March 2009 and was awarded 'Runner-Up Virtual Assistant of the Year 2012.'
Other stuff about me
I was born in Tanzania, East Africa and spent a number of years living in the south east of England before eventually emigrating to New Zealand with my family, in 1975.
My partner and I live in Auckland's eastern suburbs and we share our home with two fabulous Maine Coon cats. Maine Coon’s are the largest breed of domestic cat in the world.
Being a travel consultant for several years means I have visited many different places throughout the world. I am particularly fond of Fiji and have holidayed there 17 times (so far!)
My partner and I enjoy many fabulous trips away on our boat, in and around the Hauraki Gulf, over to the Coromandel, Great Barrier Island and the Bay of Islands. We escape away for a weekend (or longer) whenever we can.
After all, there’s nothing nicer than being out on the water with good friends, on one of those balmy Auckland evenings, sipping a G’n’T and watching the sun go down...
