|Where I'm From||
I’ve been employed by Wollongong City Council for the past 17 years, prior to that was 10 years in the banking industry and prior to that I worked as a full time checkout chick. Council has provided me many diverse opportunities with my very first job as a switchboard operator, then I moved to Secretarial Services where I provided PA, Administrative and other services to divisions such as Development Assessment and Compliance, Recreation and Natural Resources, Community & Cultural Services, Corporate Relations and Corporate Development.
Council went into Administration in 2008 which is when I started working for the 3 Administrators. This position proved to be the biggest learning curve for me. The Administrators were fast paced, quite vigilant and there was no room for errors! I guess I was in the right place at the right time or the wrong place at the wrong time depending on which way you look at it lol.
|Where I'm At||
I only heard about the Mentors and Masterminds whilst browsing my LinkedIn yesterday. I haven’t had time to have a real good look but on the surface I like the concept and sharing of information with like minded individuals and look forward to exploring the site further.
|Where I'm Headed||
To tap into and learn more about the Virtual Assistant world and the technologies used to get the job done.
|What I'm Most Passionate About||
I have been learning rock n roll dancing since March and love love it.
