and what is DNK all about?

As featured in:

Hi, I’m Hannah and I’m the CEO of Digital Nomad Kit.

Through our programs, we help people move into meaningful self-employment by growing upon their existing skills to become sought-after Virtual Assistants. This allows them to become financially free, location independent and to have full flexibility in their working days.

We also transform the businesses of those who hire VAs by providing them with exceptionally skilled talent from our graduate community.

This is the future of work.

Tech & Design Wizard & Technical Tools Coach

When I don’t work as a graphic-web-tech person and train people in courses like this, I’m a geek extraordinaire, streamer of many video games on Twitch, and human to my puppy Yoshi. Fangirl fact: I pride myself on being the very first person to enroll in the VA Starter Kit! 🎮

I’m a multi-disciplinary creative with a penchant for writing, music, and visual art of many forms! When I’m not wordsmithing, teaching design, or planning another journey to Japan, you can catch me drawing, going to concerts, gaming, or binging the latest anime.🍙

Project Manager & Client Happiness Lead

I’m your customer support champion & thrive on bringing structure behind the scenes. Fun Fact: As a Manifesting Generator (yep, I went there) I have many passions – promoting “Self-Care for Remote Workers” & getting lost in sci-fi books being only two of them. 🪐

Community first is my jam. I love connecting with our talented VAs and designing engaging and educational initiatives/resources for all. I spend my free time watching tech reviews for tech I don’t need, going on adventures with my wife (Kim), and eating too much Mexican food. 🌯


But, how?

 Here’s a little more about me…

Who is Hannah?

My name is Hannah Dixon, I’m a Virtual Assistant Coach, Recruiter, and the Co-Founder here at Digital Nomad Kit, one of the largest and longest running VA training platforms out there. I’ve trained over 25,000 VAs who go on to work with top entrepreneurs and thought leaders. My focus is, and will always be, creating standards of excellence in the remote work space with regards to ethical pay, diversity, and creating meaningful community. This stance has led to me becoming the go-to person for hiring ethically and intelligently.

After 14 years of continuous travel, I’m a familiar face in the digital nomad scene and I’m both proud and humbled to have been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, The James Altucher Report, iNews, Thrive Global, DNX and numerous other media outlets and stages on travel and entrepreneurship.

I’m openly queer, have ADHD superpowers, and never shy away from having conversations that most leave untouched in the online space. You can usually find me in a hammock ‘window shopping’ for tech that I don’t need and/or stuffing my face with a burrito.

How DNK Started (I didn’t do it alone!)

I met Co-Founder Valentina Mercenaro in London many years ago and was enthralled to hear all about how she worked from home in tech. She was my first contact with all things digital and I found my feet through her teachings. It was my personal ‘aha!’ moment where I realized how much was possible with working online. With my passion for virtual assistance as a means to create lifestyle freedom, and Val’s passion for all things UX, branding, and tech, we worked together on multiple projects/clients before landing on DNK as something we wanted to more seriously pursue.

Soon after, we relocated to Budapest where we would humbly found DNK while scraping pennies to afford a small rented room. We were frugal and forward-thinking, we believed in the future of this company so much and knew that it was worth it! Valentina was our primary product designer and set the tone of our brand and product offerings from day one. Without her we simply would not be. Valentina is a talented UX designer, I’d go as far as to say one of the best worldwide, and I’m endlessly grateful to have had her expertise and talent on board.
