  • About Me

    It can be hard to remain "personal" and trustworthy in the online world,

    so I'd like to tell you a little bit more about myself.

    Hey, I'm Katrin! Organisation Freak, Digital Nomad, Health Food Junkie & Travel Addict.

     

    I am originally from Germany but have lived and worked in my second home of choice Australia for several years. For a long time, I have been searching for ways to gain greater work flexibility as I’ve always wanted to live in both countries throughout the year - without being bound to one office, one location, one country.

     

    When I came across the concept of virtual assistance, I felt like I had finally found what I was looking for. The flexibility and prospect of working with interesting people from different walks of life, whilst still doing the work I enjoy and escaping the 9-5? This was a real game changer.

     

    Meanwhile I don't even have a home base anymore. After one year of establishing my business, I fully embraced the digital nomad lifestyle and love the ability it gives me to live and work anywhere in the world!

     

    So, why should you be working with me?

    You will receive a big dose of “German thoroughness” and my full commitment to get the job done right. This comes with great attention to detail & my exceptional organisational talent. People who know me, describe me as an organisation freak, who even plans holidays with Excel spreadsheets…I am simply crazy about being organised & keeping on top of things.

     

    I am a reliable, empathetic people-person with a genuinely positive attitude who enjoys taking on new responsibilities and learning new skills.

     

    I'm always up for new adventures and challenges! :-)

     

    Would you like to work with me? Drop me a line with your requirements and also refer to my services to see what exactly I can help you with.

    What my clients say about my work

    MobilCenter Berlin

    Ka Sundance

    "Katrin has been a great help in our business for 1,5 years and I consider every business owner who has the honour and joy of working with her very lucky indeed! She is always punctual, reliable and able to work independently, which is of huge importance to me. She contributes her own ideas, is creative in finding solutions, and consistently went above and beyond to support us in all areas of our operations – far more than expected. As the owner of my business I could sleep well at night, having the security of knowing that I could always rely on her 100%."

    Michelle Dale

    "Kat is an absolute joy to work with, her attention to detail is impeccable and inherent desire to get the job done right first time is a rare quality in a virtual assistant. As well as being incredibly attentive and showing great initiative, she's reliable, self-motivated and has also demonstrated excellent leadership and teamwork skills.

    I continue to be so grateful to have Kat as part of my business and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a quality VA to support them individually, or as part of their team."

     

    Carina Herrmann

    „Katrin helped me on numerous occasions in very different projects and has been keen to learn, quick to adapt and always open for everything I threw in her direction. She is typically German: very reliable, careful not to make any mistakes and flexible in sudden deadlines and spontaneous projects of mine. Highly recommended if you need someone to clear up your To-Do List and keep you from insanity in your business."​

    Janina Hildebrand

    "Katrin has been an outstanding contributor to our float therapy center and greatly improved my and my partner’s business efficiency and our sense of wellbeing. She has been a huge help in managing day to day administrative tasks which freed up my time substantially so that I can now focus on managing our business better and not work 12-16 hours around the clock, knowing all our admin is handled. I find Katrin to be extremely reliable, competent and timely and I have no hesitation in recommending her."

    Stefanie Faceira

    "I had the pleasure to work with Katrin on several projects. I can truly say that personally and professionally it is a joy to work with her as she adapts quickly to situations, people, and tools. Her priority is to find the best solution for her clients and she does that not only with speed and proactiveness but also with grace and fun. I highly recommend working with her.​"

    MobilCenter Berlin

    Marko Teubert

    "Katrin translated my website from German to English super-accurately and professionally, as well as a hard-to-understand J.K. Rowling interview from English to German. I am so happy with the results. I was always able to trust for her to complete any tasks I wanted to be done exactly how I needed them. Furthermore, she has a very pleasant way of dealing with people. I would always work with her again if the opportunity arises and wish her all the best."

    Adina Bitterlich

    "Katrin has been a great help assisting me on various jobs such as research tasks and very accurate translations from English to German and vice versa. The communication with her is always very pleasant and straightforward. I highly appreciate her reliability and will surely be working with her again in the future."
