Meet the VA: Jenny
Here at Get Ahead VA our people are everything. Our ever growing team has a wide range of highly skilled professionals with different backgrounds, expertise and even different personalities to ensure that we can find exactly the right VA to match our customers’ requirements.
Here’s 60 seconds with one of the VAs who has over a decade of direct marketing experience:
Name: Jenny Serra
Area of expertise: Social Media Marketing, Graphic Design & Marketing
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I joined Get Ahead VA in October 2015 as I decided to take the plunge and leave my safe office job for a role that would challenge me and allow me to use all the skills I have gained over the years. Being able to work from home and be there for my young son when he comes home from school is also a huge benefit – and no more rush hour traffic jams to fight through either!
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: I have worked for a direct marketing company for 11 years – starting as a Marketing Assistant before progressing up to Assistant Marketing Manager within a short period. I completed various roles within the company and covered everything from catalogue production, marketing reports, campaign management, new product development, proof reading and copy writing to photography – phew! I also gained my CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing and am currently completing a Graphic Design Diploma (which I love!).
Career highlight to date: Managing my first ever exhibition all on my own – everything from deciding on the venue, having a stand custom built and arranging the staffing. It was a fantastic challenge and, I’m pleased to say, a huge success!
Plans for the future: To continue working at Get Ahead, keep building my skills and have a better work/life balance. I am looking forward to using the time that used to be spent in the car travelling to the office to get some exercise and get out for a run instead.
