My Story..

EARLY YEARS


I have been working in administration, in a corporate environment, in a variety of secretarial posts since leaving high school. 


Over the years my exposure to many different types of industries including, music, automobile, training, accountancy and construction at all levels of management, has been invaluable. 


My love of travelling enabled me to gain further experience internationally, working in property and the Education Minister's administration office in Sydney, Australia and finally the New Zealand Stock Exchange. 


This work experience was enhanced by the importance of 'customer service' while working in hospitality in Val D'Isere (French Alps) for two winter seasons. 


ACHIEVING GOALS


In my thirties, time out was taken to raise a family however, during this period, educational goals were set and achieved to keep my skills fresh and enhance my qualifications. 


Obtaining the London Chamber of Commerce Executive Secretaries Diploma, Multimedia & Web Design and a Foundation Degree in Hospitality & Tourism were vital to further my career development once my children were grown and more independent. 


During this time I also assisted in setting up a small accountancy practice and feel proud to have achieved it all later in life.


To this day I continue with my own personal development and learning new skills. I recently obtained a bookkeeping qualification that facilitated Associate membership of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers.  I intend to further these qualifications in the near future.

ASPIRATIONS


Having achieved everything  I wanted to in terms of working for others, I grasped an opportunity to take voluntary redundancy in my last job to set up my own business.  It was time to channel all my hard work into something I created for myself and my family.  


Armed with all the experience I needed,

SP Solutions Bangor was launched in April 2018.  Sharing my skills and knowledge with small businesses was rewarding and enabled me to take pride in adding value and watch them grow. 


Although based in Bangor, Northern Ireland this does not limit my clients to this area. 


Furthermore, with my industry memberships, I do not feel alone in this venture. I have access to a large team of professionals whose knowledge I can tap into if and when needed.   


Now that you know a little more about the woman you will be working with,

I would be delighted to hear from you to discuss your current road blocks/issues,

let's find ways to make your life much easier.  Together we can identify problem areas, resolve the issue and

free up more of your valuable time to spend more quality hours with your family, loved ones and friends.
