About

About

Originally from Ireland, I kick-started my career as an International Travel Consultant, proudly attaining my qualifications from IATA/UFTAA in Dublin. Fuelled by an unwavering passion for global exploration and thriving within diverse settings, I made the bold leap by relocating to Paris, France.

For over 25 years, I've gained considerable experience working with high-level executives as a Bilingual Executive PA in Paris. During this time, I've had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed organizations such as Disneyland Paris (leisure), Baker & McKenzie (legal), Deloitte & Touche (tax & legal), Vogue US Magazine (advertising, fashion & press industry), PricewaterhouseCoopers (HR consulting), Herbalife (cosmetics/food supplements), and BNP Paribas (finance).

 

These enriching experiences have sculpted me into a seasoned professional adept at navigating the complexities of international business environments. Drawing upon my extensive background and diverse skill set, I am poised to deliver unparalleled support in French and English, on a global scale.

"Superb support! I contacted Ashling to help me out on some translation support - she was quick to respond and I was immediately reassured by her professional but also friendly manner. She understood my needs and helped me navigate through some complex online and on the phone forums to get the information I needed. Ashling went the extra mile including staying on the phone to authorities until late on a Friday night to help me get the information I needed. I will definitely get in contact with Ashling anytime I need translation help and I strongly recommend her".

"Ashling has supported me in a variety of tasks when my own French language skills were not sufficient. Ashling is now my go to person for bilingual support. Being based in Dubai, it is reassuring for me to know that I have Ashling as reliable support based locally in France with an in depth knowledge of procedures and customs. She is highly communicative, updating me on tasks throughout ! I would highly recommend her services".

Her determination and result-focus are legendary and brought us great value. She is perfectly bi-lingual French-English. On top of that, she is a fun lady to work with. I would highly recommend Ashling to anyone struggling with French administration, supplier issues and red tape".
