Hey, I’m Korryn — Your Brisbane Techie Tinkerer & Implementor

I hadn’t planned to start a business. But when I landed a client (accidentally), I figured I might as well roll with it. And so Encore Admin Consulting was born in 2016.

Starting a business that was based online awakened my techy mind. I found I had a knack for getting in there and working out how the tech worked. Learning on the fly made me realise these systems I’d set up got my business ticking along quickly, and I was able to do the same for my clients.

I soon moved away from merely ‘doing’ the admin for other people, to strategising and showing them how to use tech correctly to self-manage their business admin.

And I love it.

I love being their tech mechanic – getting in and tinkering under their business bonnet and making their systems purr along beautifully.

I’ve been nominated for (and won)
some pretty fabulous awards

Top 100 Cool Company Awards Anthill 2018
Business with Babies Winner 2018
Australian Business Awards Champion 2019 Finalist
Brilliant Biz Mum Awards Finalist
Gig Super Stars Winner

2

I’m a pop music tragic and do love the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys (and P!nk if that gives me back some street cred).

I wanted to work in the music industry,
but my other love of being the admin doer
(& earning money) won.

I taught myself to play the guitar, and I’m now bashing away at drums – I’ll be a one-woman band soon.

The out of office Korryn

When I’m not the tech implementor for my clients, I’m the day to day organiser, the peacekeeper, the dietary and emotional wellbeing officer and the giver of many hugs.

I’m a mum to two munchkins Hayden and Ella, the wife to a lovely man Darren, and hooman mum to a fur baby, Cocker Spaniel Angel (who is my Chief Furry Officer).
