After ten years working as a PA in the Sport and Music Industries (and touring around the world several times over) for well known names such as Lily Allen, Vicky decided that she wanted to concentrate on the area of Professional Organisation and Decluttering.
In 2010 Vicky started her first business in London, You Need A Vicky, which has grown from strength to strength.
Since then, Vicky has founded four thriving businesses all within the ‘You Need A...’ brand. You Need A PA, You Need A Nutritional Therapist, You Need An IT Guy. Vicky finds herself inundated with requests from people wanting to get their homes in order. She implements practical, simple systems that make the home a streamlined, efficient and calming place to live. Home styling and storage solutions play a big part in the You Need A Vicky experience also. Clients look to her for advice and recommendations for the best products they can use to keep their homes organised.
Vicky believes 'it starts at home’ - if your home is in shape, other elements of your life will follow.
