About Allie Gerrie:
Starting her admin journey in 2010. She built her career in a variety of roles and industries, mostly in small companies where she was not just the administrator but also operations manager, technology whiz, and marketing guru. Being used to wearing many hats equipped Allie to start her own business.
She thrives in an environment where no two workdays are exactly the same!
One of my favourite parts of this conversation is where Allie answers the “When did you know your business was real?” question.
Her answer had us both laughing. Allie runs a VA business and it felt real when she had “to hire my own VA to help me run my own business”
At The Savvy Admin she gets to work in a busy environment and to multi-task, be efficient, and problem-solve – all these things are now second nature and are exhibited in her work ethic.
Every client and project is different, which is what she loves about having a business of her own. That and being able to have a flexible schedule.
Her ultimate goal:
Make the life of my client easier so that they can have more time to do the things they love.
On a more personal note…
Allie lives in Hamilton, Ontario with her partner and their dogs, Barney and Mabel, and cats, Jo and Ru. o of course we had to talk about the cats and dogs!!
