About Melanie

Administrator Extraordinaire

Melanie thrives on helping whip your admin into manageable bites that you can understand and gain some benefit from.

Melanie Wallis – My Story

Growing up, Melanie was taught that chores happen before playtime. That chaos has its own order and that each task – no matter the size – can be done if done systematically. Along with the tried and tested, if you don’t succeed the first time, try again because there is nothing in life you can’t do.

Melanie left school at 16, and worked full-time while completing her Matric and a Diploma in Journalism. By the time she turned 21, she was running a small administrative department for a local supermarket.

“I believe a business can be greatly improved by effective office admin practices.”
