My Story

The Star PA > My Story

So when did it all start? And how did I decide to provide my services to the Complementary Health and Wellbeing Industry?

I have always been a self-starter. From my first venture at age 10 when I would buy stickers in bulk and sell them individually at school, I’ve always had an entrepreneurial mindset.

I progressed to setting up a children’s party/entertainment agency in my teens, which I ran alongside my day job and whilst studying at university. At age 21, I finished my degree in Business Administration and Management, and kept multitasking between my office job and running my weekend business.

Years later in 2005, I came to the UK to learn English. Then life happened and I have been here ever since!

In 2009 I came to realize that by joining together my experience and language skills with my entrepreneurial approach, I could build a unique business. I founded The Star PA – bespoke virtual assistance services to UK business owners trading with Spain and Latin America. And it was a hit!

Then in 2012, after 3 years of non stop I had a burnout. I had a big health set back – I was diagnosed borderline autoimmune and had to learn to manage with lifestyle adjustments. It is fair to say I had to learn the hard way! This is when I was introduced to complementary medicine and health and wellbeing as a whole.

Between 2012 and 2020, I kept my business running on a project basis and alongside this I was able to pursue a career in PA/office management where I managed a wide array of offices and premises and supported in-house as well international remote teams.

Now, after more than a decade of servicing different sectors, I have decided to focus on providing my VA services to the Health and Wellbeing Industry. This way I am able to combine two of my biggest passions: Admin and Wellness.

My experiences have consistently taught me the undeniable value of a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health balance. I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to use my skills to help others achieve this balance in their own business and personal lives.
