Roles have included provision of secretarial services, PA work, project management and administration, academic and business report writing and editing, and recruitment. I run Penguin Office Services and Penguin Transcription, and have written and developed both sites. I don't have time to run a personal site as well! In my spare time I enjoy walking, embroidery and encaustic art.
