Hi, i'm emily!

I’m a communications VA based in Cambridge, UK.  I love to solve problems for small business owners, helping them make the most of their time, skills, interests and energy.

I started working virtually in 2011, when my first child was born, and the decade since has seen projects across a really diverse range of sectors and clients.  Being self-employed and working virtually gives me the flexibility to spend time with my family, alongside doing something I love.

My background is in policy and communications – I’ve worked within a political party, in Westminster, in a membership organisation, in a trade association, and with public affairs agencies.  Today, I bring that wide range of experiences to bear for my clients.

I have a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in Modern History from Oxford University.

I know how hard the juggle is – business, family, personal commitments. That’s my main driver for helping entrepreneurs just like you!  

If you’d like to save yourself valuable time and energy and use it to focus on growing what you love, let’s chat!

Testimonials & PORTFOLIO


Sally Lovett - Stretching the City


You can see the blog I wrote on Winter Wellness for the Stretching the City blog.






Claire Tovey - Beyond the Oven

I asked Emily to write me a blog post to be one of my core pieces of content. We had a chat about what it was that I was after.

The blog post that Emily sent over was well-written and brilliantly researched – I have a very specific niche.

She included notes about places I could mention my services, or add affiliate links. I was able to publish it almost immediately.

I would recommend Emily to any business owner who is looking for high-quality content.

Simon Juden - freelance public affairs specialist

I first hired Emily while CEO of the Publishers Association and quickly became impressed with her clarity of thought and expression.  I have since hired her (in a freelance capacity) while leading Public Policy globally for Pearson and while running UK Metals Council, a body which brings together all the relevant trade bodies in the metals sector.  I have asked Emily to do a number of different things: produce clear, well thought through analyses; present to a variety of audiences; conduct and collate data from conversations with senior executives worldwide; liaise and strengthen relationships with European and other partners and many other things.  Her work is always accurate, timely, impeccably presented and in the right tone for the intended audience.  I fully intend to hire her again as needs arise and would not hesitate to recommend her services.
