MONTEREY ASSISTANCE SERVICES
Getting "All The Things" Done for You
Monterey Assistance exists to provide clients with support wherever they may need it. We provide a broad range of services so that you can focus on what is most important for you, either at the office, or at home.
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANCE AND OFFICE ADMINISTRATIVE TASKS
Need a Hand with Your Office Admin?
With many years experience in Executive Assistant roles, I provide clients with professional support across email and diary management, client relations and managing all your day to day admin for you, so you can focus on what you do best.
I can also support you virtually with a variety of general Office Administrative tasks from basic data entry to proofing and formatting documents, from Zoom call minute taking to implementing systems to streamline your working day. I work virtually so can be flexible around when you need me most.
PERSONAL ASSISTANCE/LIFESTYLE MANAGEMENT
Free Up Your Time
I can turn my hand to pretty much anything!
Needing a holiday? Don't waste your time finding the perfect holiday. I will do the research based on your timeframes, wish lists, locations and budgets and source your best options. I have extensive experience with planning travel.
Need Gifts? Birthdays? Anniversaries? For yourself? I will research and source gift ideas for your whole family based on your budget and guidelines. All the gifts will be beautifully wrapped and ready for the special day! I like to support Local and New Zealand businesses, especially small businesses, for these gift ideas (and always try to go ethical, organic, natural and always animal cruelty free!).
Have a bunch of errands? Need your shoes reheeled? Dry cleaning dropped off or picked up? I am able to undertake errands in the Auckland area.
PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT
Free Up Your Time at Home
Everyone is busy with their lives, and sometimes you need an extra pair of hands. I have experience in running private households including staff management and recruitment, childcare, housekeeping and cleaning, de-cluttering and organisation, shopping (home and grocery) and project management including organising and directing tradespeople. This service is available in Auckland.

I can make it easy for you to get started, and show you how to make the most of your property.
