About Me

My name is Sofia and I am the Assistant behind  Sofiasticated VA & Web Design, a place where you will find the support you need so your business runs smoother and grow further…I am a Virtual Assistant and Web Designer based in Surrey.

I have been successful at furthering my education whilst in full time employment, and I attribute this success to my ability to plan, schedule, and handle many different tasks at once.  This flexibility will help me to support you.  I have completed a Pitman’s Executive PA Diploma in 2005 followed by 7 years as Senior Secretary for CEO and Chairman of the ASA advertising watchdog.

Web Design is my passion and it started when I designed my first fashion/gossip site in 2011 and latest in 2015, a children’s party entertainment website.  Both designed using a Squarespace template, however I have successfully complete Web Design Specialist Diploma with Pitman's training in 2017 which gave me the tools to build with Wordpress and various other templates.  Nothing gives me more satisfaction than bringing your business ideas to life. 

People find me to be an upbeat, self-motivated team player with excellent communication skills.  I would describe myself as an enthusiastic fast learner, with a great personality and always ready for a new challenge.

How do I like to work?

I like my work to be completely virtual but I am still able to perform the same tasks as a full time, office based personal assistant at a fraction of the cost.
