About Us

The concept behind Go-To Virtual Assistant came about after speaking to other small business owners and discovering a common frustration was a lack of time.  Time to focus on their core business, to expand and grow and ensure that standards were maintained not just within the business, but also with family and home life. 


Go-To Virtual Assistant was started in 2016 by Vanessa.  Vanessa is a CIPD qualified Human Resources professional with experience of dealing with all levels of the business. Her desire to deliver exceptional work is only superseded by a need for excellence and high-quality service.  


As a parent herself juggling the needs of a young child, two large dogs, a house and garden and undertaking voluntary work, Vanessa realised that by taking those tasks that were often quite time consuming and labour intensive, she could give small business owners the time and capacity to focus either on delivering their core business or the capacity to expand and grow their business as well as the potential to achieve a better work/life balance.


Throughout her working career, Vanessa has held numerous administrative roles until moving into the field of Human Resources and Personnel, initially in an administrative capacity until moving into an HR Officer role at a District Council where she worked in partnership with Managers to help them deliver their services.  Other skills and experience include project management, a desire to deliver to a high standard, fantastic people skills, great communication skills and the ability to undertake a wide range of tasks.


More recently Vanessa has volunteered for a local charity helping to organise an annual Country Show that raises money for the local Community Hall. The Show attracts around 3000 visitors every year.  Alongside organising and chairing the Horticultural Show which makes up part of the Country Show, Vanessa also manages the charity's website, social media and press-releases promoting the event across Hampshire.  


What drives Vanessa is a good challenge so why don’t you let her deal with the challenges that should be delegated and use your time on what is important - your clients and their needs.
