Name:  Louisa

Area of expertise:

When & why did you join Get Ahead:
I joined March 2023. I used to work for Get Ahead when Rebecca first launched her agency and I loved being a VA, I thrive on variety and love the pressure of working to strict deadlines. I love the way Get Ahead feels like a close community. I have re-joined Get Ahead because my own business is being sold and I need to keep busy, but most of all I enjoy helping businesses achieve their goals even if I play a minor role in their growth and development.

As I have a good range of skills and have experience running my own businesses where multi-tasking is the norm I believe I will be an asset to any business that needs the expertise of an experienced VA. 

What did you do before you joined Get Ahead:
I was running my own business an app that works on GPS location for cleaning and dog walking in London.

I also have a fashion label for women in wheelchairs that is sold online & stocked in outlets within the USA.

Previous to having my own business I graduated in law and became a solicitor specialising in business and corporate law. After leaving the solicitors role I was a self-employed business consultant. 

Career highlight to date:
Opening my fashion business in 2007 during London Fashion Week and being the first catwalk to have genuine wheelchair users. My fashion label is exclusively for women in wheelchairs. 

Plans for the future:
To help my daughter succeed in her social media app called FoodSnapp and increase my investment portfolio to hopefully retire in 8 years!
