By now you know we love showing off the talented and hardworking team members here at AdminAssist. Our virtual assistants continually exceed the expectations our clients have and really help bring together a sense of “office-culture”, even though most, if not all of us, are kilometres away from each other every day.
This week we chat to Mandy Swanepoel, one of the assistants who has been with AdminAssist the longest! Mandy was born and raised in Pietermaritzburg, Natal. She has been living in Johannesburg for the past 9 years. Currently Mandy shares her home with her partner, two dogs (a lab, Max and a Great Dane, Sarge) and two cats Abbey and Joey.
Not only does Mandy have a PA Diploma, she is also working towards completing her Personal Trainer Diploma!
Mandy serves as a virtual assistant to a client of ours who is based in Michigan, America. Mandy has also recently taken on the role as Marketing Assistant at AdminAssist and helps with social media scheduling, social media designs and other marketing and content related tasks.
These are Mandy’s answers to our questions:
Tell us about your career background?
I have been involved in administrative work from age 18, so 23 years now 🙂 I am also currently the Executive Assistant to the CFO of Hans Merensky Holdings.
What would you say is your strength/s?
I think organising is my main strength and any and all admin tasks.
Describe the coolest project you have had as a Virtual Assistant?
I love the more creative projects like designing social media posts and banners etc.
If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?
I’m a virtual assistant, meaning I can work form anywhere. Maybe I’ll move to a nature reserve. Then both the ellie and I will be happy 😊
Mandy, cheers to your years with us! We are proud to have you on our team and hope to have you on many more interesting and fulfilling projects. We deeply appreciate you and wish you heaps of success wherever you serve others with your talent for Admin.
