The special thing about an Outhouse VA is that just like our clients, we run and build businesses. We’re all in the same ship. Having been or still being business owners ourselves we totally ‘get’ the stresses involved in running a business. You can trust us to run your business even when you’re not there. It’s a true collaboration. We get where you’re coming from and care as much as you do.
And as for super galactic… yes, we’re really that good!
What you see here is a collective of like-minded, motivated, hard working, professional, caring and intelligent business people.
With a proven track record in business administration our VAs are experts in their field, most with awards to prove it.
What drives us forward is our passionate belief that by enabling you to have a more effective work-life balance this will do great things for the world – in turn helping to improve not only your business and your life, but improve the economy, help create jobs and generally to make the world a happier place…
MD, Super Galactic VA & Chief Organiser
Award winning VA, experienced PA & project co-ordinator, Steph Middleton-Foster is an entrepreneur with a background in providing operational support to a wide variety of organisation; from charities to local government. In her own words, Steph says “I genuinely believe that efficient admin is the backbone of every business, without it, you’ll come unstuck eventually”
Steph is passionate about helping entrepreneurs to achieve their goals, both business and personal, through providing the very best business support. She’s loved by our clients for her “100% uncompromised, unadulterated, perfect professionalism”. Steph’s a calm, organised & intuitive lady with an enormous list of skills, there’s not much she can’t do to help you!
Away from the office, Steph’s a keen horse rider and loves spending time in the saddle whenever she gets chance. As a volunteer foster carer for Dogs Trust, she’s often got an interesting story or two to tell about the latest canine visitors to Outhouse HQ. She also loves to travel and spent many years working from her apartment in Italy, enjoying the sunshine & good food!

Pippa has a long career in Customer Service and experienced many years of working in the Corporate sector for a well known Telecommunications brand. She appreciates that excellent customer service is fundamental to the success of any company, and is passionate about making sure this is always delivered.
She is skilled in ensuring that everything is running smoothly and efficiently, and knows that organisation is the key! Pippa is also our super sleuth who can find anything with the tiniest piece of information. She loves the variety of work that being a VA and working for Outhouse brings.
When she’s not working, Pippa loves spending time with her family, as well as reading, singing and walking (but not at the same time!) She particularly enjoys the hot sunshine, countryside and lakes where she lives, in South-West France.

Supergalactic Virtual Assistant & Project Superstar
Coming from a background working for a government organisation, Anne is great at managing our busy client’s workloads and keeping things running well! Experienced in project co-ordination and bid writing, aswell as database and e-commerce management, Anne is the perfect side-kick to any business owner that needs a hand keeping their projects or online stores on track.
When she’s not working for Outhouse, Anne enjoys travelling and likes to jet off around the world whenever she gets an opportunity! The beauty about being a VA is that location isn’t a major factor, so don’t be surprised if you hear she’s in Germany one day, and Australia the next – although one thing that that will never change is the quality of her work which you will always be impressed with.
