In 2010 after a career break Rebecca wanted something for herself. She researched Virtual Assistants and realised that this was something she could do and make it whatever she wanted it to be.

Rebecca does not have a PA background – her background was as a retail buyer. Learn how Rebecca started out and grew into Get Ahead VA.

After a corporate career in buying for retail giants Superdrug and Sainsburys, Rebecca was looking for a flexible work solution that could fit around her lifestyle and three daughters. Having grown up with a successfully self-employed mother, Rebecca knew it was possible to work as well as be there for school drop off and pick-ups. Her mum was a real inspiration and Rebecca grew up knowing that she wanted one day to run her own business just like her mum did.

Rebecca is now the Founder of Get Ahead – Your Virtual Agency and with a team of 50 virtual specialists and 10 franchisees under her belt, and is growing a global agency.
