Hello!

Welcome to my site!  My name is Kelly and I am the owner of the Admin’s Niche and I work as a virtual assistant.

A Virtual WHAT, you may ask … you read right, a virtual assistant.  I didn’t know this virtual industry existed until 2 years ago.  One day, Ali Fourie from AMF Typing Services (old work colleague of my mother’s) called up one day and said ‘Do you know how to do a form in Microsoft Word’.  I said ‘sure, that is an easy task for me’ and before I knew it I had my very first client and I started my journey into the Virtual Assistant World.

Since then the world has opened up to me and so many new and exciting opportunities have come my way.  I now work as a full time VA to people in South Africa, America, Dubai and Australia.  I help them with tasks that take up their valuable time so they can concentrate on running their business and becoming a success.

When I left school, I had no idea what I wanted to become.  Everyone around me seemed to have a set 5 year plan and I felt silly because I didn’t know which direction I was going to go in.  I took a gap year and one of the conditions was that I studied for my ICDL (International Computer’s Driving Licence) and get a job to help out in the house.  Which is exactly what I did, I got a job at a Chiropractor’s Office as a receptionist and started getting my work experience.  Shortly after that, at an open day at the University of Johannesburg I discovered Corporate Communications and instantly fell in love with Public Relations, Marketing and everything that came with it.  I received my degree, BA Corporate Communication in 2007.  After that I completed my Certified Administrative Professional (with the specialised exam in Organisational Management) from the International Association for Administrative Professionals.

After my studies I worked as a Junior PR Practitioner in a small training company where I wore many hats and had to learn things quickly before I started to drown in my work.  Because of that wonderful opportunity, I have the necessary skills and understanding to do the following:

  • Setting up of company stationery
  • Graphic Design (logos, pictures, fancy looking text and more)
  • PowerPoint Graphics and setting up a slide show that will WOW all audiences
  • Typing Jobs (Documents, excel spreadsheets and converting from PDF to Word)
  • Photoshop (yes I can make you skinnier and make your skin silky smooth)
  • Website design
  • Email marketing
  • Newsletters (HTML and PDF)
  • Manage Social Media (From creation and everything in between)
  • And so much more!

I love what I do because I help others succeed.  It is a passion of mine and I am excited that I found this avenue to share my knowledge and expertise.

If you want to know how I can help you succeed – drop me a mail on kelly@theadminsniche.com, fill the form in below or give me a tinkle on +27 61 446 2041.  I promise I don’t bite.
