Heather Bridgman
Your Virtual Assistant

As a professionally qualified Executive Assistant, I am very proud to look back at my career to see how far I have travelled since I left education and started my very first role as a Junior Secretary for an Accountancy firm in Portsmouth, England. Over the years I have gone on to provide executive, business development, back-office and HR services within small, medium and large organisations across the UK, supporting CEOs, MDs and executive teams.

During that time, I started a family and became a mother of two; both of whom are now grown up and following their own path in life. I have lived in England, Wales, Scotland and overseas, finally moving back to my home town of Gosport in Hampshire. My time abroad wasn’t much of a gap year in comparison to today, but it did give me the opportunity to live in some very beautiful places and it set the tone for a lifelong love of travel and tourism.

Having trod the boards as an employee for many years and now my children have left home, I decided I needed something else to nurture and watch grow. The choice was another cat or to take the next logical step in my career and create my own business! Now, as the owner and principal Virtual Assistant of Bridge VA Solutions, I am able to utilise my skills, knowledge and experience to support and enable companies who require that little bit of extra back-office assistance, ad-hoc project work and executive support. This provides them with the opportunity to liberate themselves from the additional on-going running costs of a full-time employee and allows them to dedicate their time to nurture and grow their business too.

With the technological advances we enjoy today, working remotely with your clients is simple thanks to conference calling, mobile, internet and digital communications. I’m proud to provide my full range of Virtual Assistance services, offering flexible, professional, efficient, reliable and cost effective support.
