NOTE FROM KIMBERLEY, FOUNDER & CEO
Hi, I’m Kimberley Weatherall – the founder and owner of Beyond Your Office. Nothing gets me more excited than helping other women build or grow their dreams – and I feel so lucky to get to do that each and every day through this business.
I spent the early part of my career focused on parenting my twin daughters and volunteer work – with their school and as a Board member for non-profits and charities related to multiple births.
From there I worked at the University of Ottawa and for VSO Canada and CUSO-VSO (now CUSO International). Following that, I took on the part-time position of Executive Director for Multiple Births Canada (MBC, which would later become one of my first Beyond Your Office clients!)
Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with many talented, hardworking and dedicated individuals, and learned something unique from each of them. Along the way, I developed a strong work ethic, second-to-none organizational skills (being a mom of twins helps with that too!) and passion for helping others – which serves me very well as a VA and now the leader of this business.
I currently live in a suburb of Ottawa Ontario with my husband Steve. We are the proud parents of two now-adult daughters. I love to learn and play with new techy programs, discover shiny online tools and spend far more time than I should on my phone! I still love to volunteer when I can and also enjoy reading, movie nights, bike rides and travel.
If you run a small business or not-for-profit it would be my pleasure to meet you where you are, lighten your load and help you grow your business. Let’s chat.
