Joanne Salmon

Owner and Founder Joanne Salmon has worked as a PA/EA for almost 20 years.  Joanne started her career at a small property company working her way up from receptionist to PA to a Director.  

Joanne moved into Law working for a magic circle law firm supporting partners and their teams helping them manage their diaries, billing, legal documents and personal admin as well as booking business trips and processing expenses.  Joanne has also spent time at silver circle and American law firms again support partners and their teams.

Joanne started working as a Virtual EA in October 2017 and now works for an array of clients including a QC, a litigation funder, a dispute resolution company, a corporate business coach and a HR Director. She founded EA Consulting in 2020 after the rapid growth of her sole trader business meant she didn’t have enough time to keep up with the demand from new clients.

One of Joanne’s main strengths is her excellent organisation skills, she loves nothing more than working out time zones for multi-country conference calls and planning business and personal travel for her clients. 

Katy Reid

Katy has over 20 years’ experience working in sectors such as Insurance, Banking and Law.  She started off as a receptionist and built her career up to become a Legal Secretary in a magic circle law firm.  

She stayed at the same firm for some 13 years and worked for a team of Partners, Fee Earners and Trainees.  The work consisted of diary management, time recording, document production, expenses and booking travel, to name a few.  She thoroughly enjoyed her time there but made the hard decision to leave and work locally in her hometown in Essex, supporting a small solicitor’s firm.

One of the highlights of her Katy’s career was working in the iconic building at Lloyds of London and she was lucky enough to hear the Lutine Bell.

Jo Rawlings

Jo has an extensive background working as a corporate PA for many years.  In recent years Jo started working as a Virtual PA for a successful start up business which has grown from strength to strength with Jo’s help.  

With Jo’s proactive and articulate approach to her work, along with her experience, we are delighted that Jo has decided to join the team here at Executive Assistant Consulting. 

Nadiyah Chaudhry

Nadiyah has a wealth of PA experience, working in the corporate world for many years before transitioning to work for small businesses.  Nadiyah also has experience of running her own business and so has a good understanding of the type of support business owners and entrepreneurs need to keep their days running smooth. 

Nadiyah is a very focussed and proactive EA with a lovely friendly, clam nature and so is a real asset to our team.
