Tam Johnson | Creative Director + VA

Tam is the admin whizz behind Freelance Timaru and loves getting stuck into organising client's inbox's, setting up system and processes, creating magic moments for business owners, and telling their stories through social media and web design.

Tam started here career in Tourism and Travel working as a sales consultant. She quickly learned to navigate multiple systems, putting her knowledge to work. Creating itineraries for customers travelling around New Zealand and selling experiences and destinations. Fast forward a few years and she grew her career in the public and private healthcare sector's providing high level administration and technical support to General Practitioner's and Private Specialists.

Tam loves working with clients who want to grow their brand online and ones who need an assistant a.k.a. a V.A without having the overhead costs of an employee.

In her downtime, you will find Tam spending time with her family, enjoy the outdoors, boating at the lake, and travelling our beautiful country.

When small businesses start out, the founder/owner wears many different hats and one of those hats is often doing administration, digital design, and social media on their own. They get to a point where they are just juggling too many things and this slows growth. 

By partnering with Freelance Timaru we have seen businesses really flourish and take things to the next level and see people hiring their first team members, moving from home offices to a professional office and seeing real growth by freeing the owner up to focus on growth.
