Who is Versatile VA?

Hello, I’m so glad you dropped in to meet me. I’m Deborah Ricketts, founder of Versatile VA, a virtual assistant (VA) business, launched in July 2018.

My team and I are passionate about supporting small service based b2b businesses within Australia, who are experiencing the juggle to stay on top of it all!  We want you to know, you don’t have to go it alone, Support Leads to Success.

About Deb

I live in the beautiful Hills District in Sydney with my husband and two beautiful daughters, Jess and Abby.

Versatile VA was dreamt up while I was searching for the Aussie dream, a work/life balance, where attending my kids’ school assembly at a ridiculous 2 pm, or helping out at daycare, was not an unachievable goal.

It became apparent that SO many business owners are burnt or burning out, trying to do it all too. Also in need of work/life balance and support. Being able to access skilled resources in a flexible and cost-effective manner can be the difference between success and failure. 

This sparked the dream to be your collaborative virtual business support. With a passion to help others, I recognised that small-medium business owners want and need a mini-me, (being 5 foot something- I fit the mini-me calling perfectly).

Someone you can trust to manage portions of your business, to be an advocate for your success, to create space for balance and growth, without you having the hassle and expense of hiring an employee.

Experience & Qualifications

With two law degrees (BLJS & LLB) and 20 years experience in a variety of corporate roles; from contracts manager to associate project manager, to supplier compliance specialist, or grants writer to name a few, I’m able to bring these diverse skills together to provide a second to none client experience.

My team of professional Australian virtual assistants (experienced working Mum’s) and I each bring degree qualifications or relevant certifications coupled with unique and varied skill sets, in order to provide a versatile and holistic solution to business owners. Most importantly, we genuinely care about you and your business and work with integrity, passion and communicate consciously.

Work with us and you will feel well supported to drive your business forwards and take some well deserved ;you’ time too.
