Here’s a little more information about me (if you were interested to know) such as links to my guest blog posts that are around the internet and my qualifications and memberships with various professional organisations that help to keep me skilled and up to date.
The Day-To-Day Stuff:
- I’m a Mum to two munchkins, Hayden and Ella; wife to one lovely fella, Darren, and Hooman Mum to one fur child, our Cocker Spaniel Angel (who is also Encore Admin’s CFO – Chief Furry Officer).
- I take my tea white with one – English Breakfast thanks!
- My end of high school career dream was to work within the music industry, I wanted to do a music business degree, so I deferred uni for a year to try and save up money to do it but I ended up enjoying earning money more than the idea of going to uni.
- My sports of choice pre-kids were squash and field hockey – my position: Goalie. Yes, I was a bit insane.
- Don’t hold it against me but I’m a pop princess at heart, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Delta Goodrem, P!nk (well she’s not a typical pop princess, she has serious street cred).

Here is what my clients say:
“Korryn from Encore Admin Consulting is a SUPERSTAR! I engaged Korryn to help me set up a new project management tool in my business. It was a highly confidential task. Korryn was 100% professional and the outcome was BRILLIANT. It would have taken me forever to get this task done as I just don’t have the time to work ON my biz. Korryn took the stress out of it and I would highly recommend her services to anyone needing assistance with project management. Thanks again!”
