Donna Coulling has been my personal assistant for ten years and secretly I wish that she’ll stay forever because I’m not sure I could function without her. Everyone should have a Donna in their lives. She is my fairy godmother: every wish gets granted. From filing, correspondence, bills, and dealing with the monotonous and never-ending maintenance of house and household, from fixing everything that breaks down -making up for all my incompetence
(Particularly in the breaking down department) Ocado, pet sitting, there is little that Donna cannot do. Superdon is her nickname. She is supersonically efficient, – I’ve never had to ask her to do anything twice, in fact I barely have to ask once before its done, she has thoughtful initiative, is consistently cheery, has a lovely manner with people, utterly professional in a job where lines could get blurred, fun, discreet, and basically perfect. I would trust her with my life. In fact I do.

Donna is a trouble-shooter. She thinks of everything that could possibly go wrong BEFORE it goes wrong, and that’s what makes her great. She is always full of good cheer and pep, and organises everything with charm and ease and total professionalism. She keeps many balls in the air at the same time, and makes it look effortless (which of course it isn’t). She is a total joy to work with and I count myself very lucky to have her in my life.
