Hi Everyone! My name is Anne Dix and I am excited to be a member of VA Networking I have a husband and two sons living here in beautiful BC, Canada; but we’re originally from southern Africa.
After graduating from the University of Natal in South Africa many years ago, with a BA and HDLSc (Higher Diploma in Library & Information Science), I started out as a Research Librarian followed by freelance work as a Bibliographic Consultant for 12 years (very much like a VA back then)where I learned how to edit and format numerous academic documents; including theses, manuals and keynote addresses at the University of Zimbabwe. I loved working with professionals in the wildlife conservation industry and working from home also gave me the freedom to spend time with my husband and young children; and to travel around Africa, Europe, New Zealand and Australia ~ another passion of mine!
When we first immigrated to Canada, I temped for a few years in the corporate world downtown Vancouver and then closer to home here in Surrey/White Rock. But I was hankering for the freedom I had enjoyed owning my own business in Africa so soon decided to work as an Admin Assistant for my husband's business. With more time on my hands I also let my creative side loose in joining Scentsy Canada where I am a Certified Consultant, focusing on online sales and sketch in my spare time.
I enjoy working on documents in Word, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint and Access; and a successful VA Business is now my goal here in Canada. I look forward to learning as much as I can from Tawnya on the VAC and networking with other members here online.
