About You – Having worked as a PA/EA for the majority of my career (predominantly in the Financial Services industry) I decided that it was time to stop following the standards and time to start setting the standards and so Karen Ritchie VA Ltd was born and I haven’t looked back since!  I have an amazing team of VAs and we most definitely are a dream team.  We all have the same values, similar personalities (we’re fun, friendly, professional and caring) and we work amazingly together!
