Well what can I say! Karina is the office version of Mary Poppins and has made an enormous difference to the social media aspect of my business. She is very efficient and capable. She is all over it like a rash and clients have commented on how much better my profile is these days. Fabulous I can’t recommend highly enough!

“In her role as treasurer, Karina has brought our book-keeping into the 21st century. We no longer have to think about the paperwork side of finances as Karina deals with it all so efficiently. Her creative ideas, enthusiasm and fun personality really add to the team, far beyond her job description. I don’t know what we’d do without her! Thank you so much for all that you do, Karina, you superstar!”

” We’re a small business without the time or skills to make sense of social media, and its true to say that without Karina we would still just be talking about having a social media presence. With her help and guidance we now have a Twitter page several hundred followers in just a few months. Once briefed Karina works diligently in the background and gets on with the job. I would recommend her to anyone.” – June 2016

 “I employed Karina to accompany me on two brand audit workshops that I was running for a client to take notes. Karina was very professional and helpful on the day and returned the typed notes to me very quickly afterwards. I would happily recommend her to others and am sure I will make use of her services again in the future.” – January 2016

“I have worked with Karina at Virtuoso-PA for two years now and have been extremely pleased with all the work that she has done for me. She deals with the bookkeeping for my business on a monthly basis and my Year end procedures. Everything she does is explained step by step by her (which I need!) When I first set-up my business Karina offered all the help and advice I needed. She’s helpful and very friendly, yet professional. Virtuoso-PA offers an excellent value and top class service. I recommend Karina, Virtuoso-PA highly.” – May 2016

“Karina at Virtuoso PA took over managing our Social Media from someone who had been doing it for several years and who retired. I was quite nervous about someone else doing it but there was no need – the transition was smooth and Karina picked up on issues quickly and efficiently. Her service is excellent value for money, she responds and reacts very quickly and has become an integral part of my business. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and Virtuoso PA to anyone” – June 2014

” Working with Karina, Virtuoso-PA was a delight. The brief was quickly understood and the work was produced to a very high standard, being delivered on time and schedule, as promised. Karina was polite, friendly and business-like throughout the whole process. The time that Virtuoso-PA saved me was well worth the small investment, indeed whilst I hesitate to say it, the charge was less than I had budgeted.  I would have no hesitation recommending Virtuoso-PA and I will certainly be using her services myself in the future ” – April 2015 & April 2017

“Karina has been a pleasure to work with over the last few months, we feel that both your professional approach to work and flexibility around our company, which is small but needs that extra administrative support has been invaluable. We would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a virtual assistant or someone needing ad-hoc work being done, as you not only have dealt with things professionally, you do it with ease and with little support, allowing us to focus on our business; feeling confident with whatever we have asked you to do, will be done. Cost to us has been just at the right level, allowing us to make use of you when required and not having to feel how much it will cost. As a small business cost is an important issue and we feel you have got the costing just right” – June 2014

“Exeter Business Club is a networking group run by the members for the members. As each member has their own business to run we outsourced managing our Twitter feed to Karina at Virtuoso PA about a year ago. She quickly grasped what we are about, increased the activity on our feed, promoted the Club and our events, and each of the members equally. The service is of an excellent standard and very cost effective” – March 2015

A poem written for me by Wendy Harrington

“Know that you are appreciated and that you are loved,

Know that you are wonderful, remarkable and special.

Know that each day you put a smile on my face,

As I delight at your sharings with the whole human race.

So grateful am I that words cannot express it,

The gift that you bring to me is really quite exquisite.

The love in my heart grows brighter thanks to you,

And all that you quietly and gorgeously do.” – July 2014

She is my wonder-woman! I now don’t want to run my business without her support.  She makes my working life easier, she is an absolute joy to work with ” – January 2014

“Karina has been supporting me with the administrative side of my craft business for a few months now and I can honestly say she is the best investment I have ever made. My business has grown since she has been helping me as now I can concentrate on expanding whilst Karina ensures my existing clients are continuing to get great customer service. Karina’s services have enabled me to keep on top of the high volume of admin efficiently, without having to employ a full time administration assistant or get buried under it all.  She offers a Fantastic Service” – September 2013

“I hired Karina to look after the bookkeeping and accounts of my small construction business. This has enabled me to concentrate more on my core business and also has allowed me to spend more time with my family at the weekends. Karina offers a high quality and efficient service which is very fairly priced, considering the high standards she provides” – August 2013
