Jennifer Chamberlin launched My Bilingual VA in 2016 after working as a Personal / Executive Assistant in Paris for 15 years.
In this episode, Jennifer shares her journey from being a PA/EA to launching her own business. She also talks about her favorite tools, best practices for working remotely, and encourages assistants to see themselves as more than “just an assistant.”
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
– John Quincy Adams
CONNECT WITH JENNIFER
Jennifer Chamberlin launched My Bilingual VA in 2016 after working as a Personal / Executive Assistant in Paris for 15 years. She grew up in England but was always passionate about Europe and learning foreign languages. When she began her first full-time job in Disneyland Paris in 1999, she knew it was the beginning of a new life in France. Now completely bilingual and a dual citizen of both countries, she’s equally comfortable in both cultures.
During her career, Jennifer has assisted high level executives in a variety of industries. Through her experiences, she has developed strong administrative skills and a good knowledge of HR procedures.
As a dynamic, reliable and trustworthy EA, Jennifer is highly motivated and looks to provide her clients with efficient and reliable administrative support. She is a good communicator, takes the initiative and has exceptional organization skills.
Based near Paris, Jennifer now works with multilingual coaches, consultants and entrepreneurs providing a wide variety of services to support their businesses. With her trusted team of associates, they can now provide a wide range of business support services in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. The world has no more frontiers and they can help you, whether you’re in Europe, Asia, America, Africa or Australia!Jennifer is now a certified bilingual online business consultant after completing Gemma Went’s Conscious Consultant Certification program where she learned about research methodology, business strategy, marketing and sales, finance, and operations. She now has several tools at her disposal to support entrepreneurs who are looking for more clarity and to develop their businesses, including mindset and strategy work . Jennifer is really excited about this new stage in her business and looks forward to helping even more clients.
When Jennifer is not working, she can be found wearing a Girl Guider uniform (encouraging girls to be themselves, have fun, build lifelong friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and communities).
Jennifer lives on the outskirts of Paris with her husband and two teenage children.
