about me

My name is Marcie, and I'm the friendly face behind Tick Tock South.


I created my little virtual assistant services business during the Level 2 lockdown in New Zealand after seeing an opportunity to assist New Zealand-based small to medium-sized businesses, time-poor business owners, entrepreneurs, and executives with adapting to a new way of thinking about the laborious "traditional recruitment" processes, and to consider outsourcing their administrative needs to a remote professional, so they can save both time and money by introducing a new 100% productive and scalable resource to their business during these uncertain times.

During my professional working career, I've been honing my "super-skills" by mostly working in large corporate environments within various industries including events; arts and entertainment; tourism; beauty therapy; hospitality; finance; and law. Because my experience is so wide-ranging these skills can be applied to any industry! I have the necessary passion, knowledge, and technical know-how to offer my clients with remote freelance virtual assistant services.

Behind the scenes I'm a proud and busy mum and wife, who enjoys camping, cooking, watching movies, and generally hanging out with my boys and our friends during my down-time. The freedom of having the ability to provide remote freelance services fits perfectly around my commitments at home, and also allows me to achieve something I've always craved.... a great work/life balance.

Enough about me! I'd love to get to know you, so please get in touch!




how it works

it just makes sense to outsource your time-consuming tasks and projects  to a virtual assistant

I'm sure there's plenty of jobs on your ever-increasing to-do list that could be outsourced to free up more of your precious time, so you can focus on your business and what's actually important to you?!

Once you've made the decision to outsource to a virtual assistant, you can book online and pre-pay for your hours-based package, or I can provide you with a quote for a tailor-made package. At the time of booking, you will also schedule your free 30-minute discovery Zoom meeting, where we will discuss your needs in more detail. Within seven days you will then receive my welcome pack, service agreement, proposal and request for information Google form. Once all documentation is received, your services will then commence on a mutually agreed date.


​All virtual assistant services are provided remotely and online, with regular virtual catch-ups via Zoom video conferencing, over the phone, and by email.
