About us

Founder and Owner

I am Thelma Rossouw and I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town, in South Africa. I am a down to earth girl that loves her animals. My animals are my life and I will do anything to keep them happy and safe.

I have been in the workforce for 35 years, of which 29 years were spent in the corporate environment. I always wanted to be my own boss and left the company in 2013. I started freelancing and 5 years later I am following my dream of owning my own company. My strong work ethic, passion to help people with their administrative work and social media platforms, inspired me to launch my own sole proprietor company, Thelma's VA Services.

  • Assessor Training (IEB & QED)
  • Instructional Design / Developer (Langevin Learning Services)
  • XML and HTML (Dynamix Learning Solutions)
