"Marion was extremely fast in her responses when I had any questions, and she took all the 'scary stuff' out of creating my website.

My new website is an artwork in itself!"

You're serious about working with someone who really 'gets' you

You already know you need help with your website, or maybe you're looking for business support from someone who actually understands your business.

I reckon I might be ‘that’ person.
Why? Because I’ve been there.
Hi, I'm Marion and I'll never forget the day I launched My Virtual Assistant, back in 2009.

It was an exciting and scary time and looking back, I absolutely wish I had found a ‘right-hand person’ to help me out.

Someone who could get rid of the overwhelm, take the pressure away and help out with my ever-growing to-do list.

These days, my clients tell me I am ‘that’ person... scroll down to find out why...

Here's why I 'get' you

I'm a business owner (just like you!) - working as a freelance Virtual Assistant, since 2009.

I've also spent 26 years working in the 'real world'.

That's 14 years in the travel industry (which includes working as a Senior Corporate Consultant, ground crew at Auckland International Airport for an American airline, and Assistant Supervisor for New Zealand's own airline's frequent flyer programme).

Followed by 12 years as an accomplished Executive Assistant for high-level corporations, in Auckland's CBD and Manukau.

Over the years, I've gained on-the-job experience in marketing, branding, communications, public relations, event organisation, and website management.

I've even completed a professional interior design course with The Interior Design Academy.

I’ve established strong business values, an excellent work ethic, and a plethora of hands-on skills.

I truly know what it takes to knuckle down and get on with the job - I guess years of working in the corporate world will do that to a girl!
And because I totally 'get' how large corporations operate and how small businesses work, I'm fully equipped to help you with your business.


When I'm not helping you solve your problems...

...you'll find me and my Captain in our happy place!

We're boaties, so we'll be out there somewhere in Auckland's beautiful Hauraki Gulf, over at the rugged Coromandel, Great Barrier Island, or up at the idyllic Bay of Islands.

My very favourite boating-place-to-be is Motukahaua Island, also known as Happy Jack’s Elephant Cove, off the west coast of the Coromandel Peninsula.

​When the mood strikes, I'll indulge my artistic groove and creativity with a dab of paint on a canvas or conjure up a feathery artwork.

Or I'll be living my bliss whilst happily planning our next home reno project (I'm obsessed with interior design!)

The rest of the time, I'll be hanging out with Saxon - aka Mr Handsome, Lord Saxon, Bumble, Wubble, Mr Purry Pants!  Saxon is our very handsome, incredibly smoochy, big, beautiful Maine Coon cat.

A bit more about me

Born in East Africa, my family moved to Kent in southeast of England when I was 5 years old.

My Dad isn't a fan of snow and hated digging out the driveway every winter.  If it wasn't for the snow in Canada we would probably be living there right now.

Instead, we moved to New Zealand, arriving here on my 11th birthday.

I'm proud to call myself a 'Howick Girl', having attended Howick Intermediate and Howick College, and have lived in the Howick area since arriving in the country.

I’m a massive fan of New Zealand and absolutely love living in Auckland - I regularly thank my parents for moving our family here when they did, it's honestly the best move they've ever made.
