Lakes-PA offers


Feeling overwhelmed by admin? I will take care of it, so you are free to concentrate on your business.


Successful businesses need a consistent and professional image. I will quickly get to know your business and will treat your customers with courtesy and professionalism.


Business demands vary.  I provide support when and for however long you need it.


Lakes-PA is a freelance service.  No requirement for the major overheads involved in hiring full- or part-time staff.  No need to spend time training a new temp every time support is required.

What’s next?

I would like to invite you for a no-obligation meeting over coffee to chat about ideas and the ways in which using my services could save you time and money.
