Here’s 60 seconds with our VA Monica:
Name: Monica Rossi
Area of expertise: Bilingual VA specialising in Finance admin, General admin and Italian business language support.
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA:
I joined Get Ahead VA in February 2021, as I love the opportunity to be part of and work in a team (being a VA business owner working from home can sometimes feel isolating) but also to get involved with clients requiring both English and Italian language as part of their business transactions. I have been a Virtual Assistant for the past 5 years and mainly work with UK businesses with interests within the UK, however wherever possible I look for opportunities to work with clients that need a second language in their mix, such as Italian.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA:
I have been working as a (Bilingual) Virtual Assistant from my base in the Sussex area in the UK – which luckily gets most of the sunshine! My background is predominantly in the corporate world, but over the last seven years, I have been working steadily to support small to medium businesses. I have been involved in industries ranging from manufacturing, banking, financial services, health and wellbeing, and aviation. With experience spanning office management, administration, project support, accounts management, and translation, I feel fully qualified to support business owners’ needs. As a business owner myself, I also understand the demand and challenges of running your own business.
Career highlight to date:
After having successfully achieved and enjoyed almost two decades of both employment and self-employment, I took the plunge and set up my own Virtual Assistant business alongside our already family run Aviation Maintenance and Advisory services business.
Plans for the future:
To grow my client base, including targeting clients who have international dealings with Italy or indeed anywhere else in the world, so I can fully utilise my language skills. Mother of a 13 year old, and wife of a Turkish/British national. I currently live on the South East coast of England and when not working I spend my time socialising and most importantly enjoying family time!
