About Me - Sharyn Munro Virtual Assistance

 

Hello, I am Sharyn Munro, the owner of Sharyn Munro Virtual Assistance and here is a little bit about me:  

I have had a heap of experience in administration roles, as well as over ten years working in libraries.  I have worked in a variety of fields which has given me a broad range of knowledge and skills, as well as a strong focus on customer service.  I aim to be the Personal Assistant you always wanted, but could never justify.

Outside of work, I love reading, watching movies and TV and surfing the web.  I like to try my hand at home improvements which can have entertaining results.  I’m a terrible cook, a passable handyperson and brilliant with pretty much anything tech related.

I’m passionate about human rights and free speech and am an active member of the Amnesty International Chermside group, and Secretary of the SANDBAG Board.  I also volunteer at SANDBAG, producing their Newsletter and helping out with other projects on occasion.

About Me - Pedro - Sharyn Munro Virtual AssistanceI have a cat called Pedro who is really good about letting me work… As long as I let him in or out whenever he wants and ensure that he has full bowls of dry food, wet food and/or water as his whim dictates.  Oh, and pats, but only when HE wants them and only for as long as HE wants them.  In fact, my inability to decipher his patting moods makes me wish I’d had the foresight to buy stocks in Band-Aid.

I started this business in October 2008 when I was between jobs and dealing with some family illnesses. I bumped in to an ex colleague while visiting a friend in hospital and he suggested I become a Virtual Assistant as he was in the market for one.  So I went home and Googled it, realised it would allow me to have the freedom I needed at the time and a week later I registered my business name and metaphorically hung up my shingle.

I specialise in word processing, typing, data entry and general administration services. My clients are varied and cover a huge number of industries including alternative practitioners, consultants, entertainment, finance, foodies, legal, not-for-profits, property, recruitment,  retail, tradies and trainers.
