ABOUT KS VIRTUAL ASSISTANT
Hi, I’m Kitty Smith, I am the owner of KS Virtual Assistant and your own remote personal assistant.
I was born in China in 1970’s, an era well-known for Chairman Mao’s Culture Revolution period. My parents were both affected by this significant historical event and they have dividing opinions about Chairman Mao. But I have grown up in a family where education and personal development is highly encouraged. So I was supported by my parents to pursue my own dream and choose my own destiny, which led to my decision in 2002, I came to study in the UK, and more than a decant later, I’m happily living here with my Scottish husband and 2 lovely kids as my permanent home.
I started my first job in the UK as an accounting clerk, then enrolled in my professional AAT study. While moving up my career ladder from purchase ledger, to credit control, then cash manager, assistant financial controller, and finally a Financial Controller, I also achieved my AAT qualification in 2008. I helped large corporate company with turnover of £60 million to shape its purchase ledger, as well as small businesses with turnover at £5 million, and full responsibility of controlling its finance function to support the business’ growth.
While I enjoy the job challenges in accounting and finance field, I came accross an opportunity that I was able to help a small business to stay on top of its growing demand, utilising many of my skills such as translation, customer communication and project management, which I didn’t realise I have.
The incident has inspired entrepreneurship inside me, hence the decision to start this Virtual Assistant business in 2019, so I can use my spare time to help small business to grow and thrive. Although the business is still at its starting stage, I was able to gain quite a number of clients, and doubled my income within just 6-month since starting. I also truly enjoy the relationship I built with small business owners, which I value the most from my work.
I pride myself on being approachable, conscientious, reliable, extremely organised, and discreet. So whether it’s bookkeeping, emails sorting, phone calls, web content or anything else, you can consider it done.
