"Rocket VA was an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of what is needed to be a professional VA. Debbie created the course to a high standard, organised the information so well, and delivered the information with so much enthusiasm, care, motivation, energy, skill and knowledge. I especially appreciated her way of actively listening to each of us when we spoke and engaging with each of us on a personal level. Well done Debs.👏"

"After doing some career coaching earlier this year and making the decision that I wanted to become a VA I found Debbie’s Rocket VA Academy. Debbie was full of energy and enthusiasm on our weekly calls and always open to helping us if we had any questions. The portal that we have access to has lots of really helpful information on and the weekly calls are always recorded in case you miss them. Now I’m in a position to start implementing all that I’ve learnt and start my own VA business thanks to Debbie."

Hi, I'm Debbie
September 2018; I was sat staring out of the window of my office in countryside just outside of London to blue skies and rolling fields. I worked in the Sales & Marketing team for one of the world’s most prestigious private members’ clubs and also spent 3 days a week in their Pall Mall HQ, walking past Buckingham Palace on the way to work. I had an active social life, great friends and apartment and was an avid gym-goer.
I seemed to have it all. The career, the friends, family, body, lifestyle, yet something was missing. I just knew that there was ‘more than this for me’.
I did a lot of soul searching that year, and it was probably my toughest to date - with a traumatic family event thrown in. I didn’t love myself, I didn’t love my life and I definitely didn’t know how I was going to make a change.
Until, I realised that I had everything I needed within me. In one second, I realised that I had to leave everything and start again.
So, I embarked on a journey of personal development, self love and tapped into my faith to set up as a freelancer.
Using my knowledge of marketing from my Marketing & Management degree and professional experience, I became a Marketing Freelancer and Virtual Assistant.
I’ve worked with over 15 clients in the space of just 3 years - from incredible Hay House Authors and coaches to international wellness retreats and wellness brands. And, around Covid I’ve managed to work remotely in Australia, Bali and Europe.
More about me
Set yourself free
I’ve learnt SO much about systems, strategies, tools and the mindset necessary to become a successful Marketing Virtual Assistant, plus a lot about myself too! And, now I want to help other people access a toolkit that can set themselves free too.
I’ve realised that life should be written on our terms - not our parents’, teachers’ or society’s expectations. So I’m here to show you how to write your own rules, create the business and life of your dreams and feel GREAT along the way!
