I started working as a Virtual Assistant before I even knew what that was. I was working in the corporate world as an Administrative Assistant and I met my first client while I was on vacation in Hawaii. I was a guest in her home. She was starting her business at that time and decided I could help her. She didn’t know what a Virtual Assistant was either; she just thought I could help her and if I had to do it from thousands of miles away, so be it. We would figure it out.
And so began my journey into the world of online admin support. That was over 20 years ago. During this time, I also worked on projects in fields such as marketing, accounting, web development, and sales venues such as Amazon, Shopify, eBay and e-commerce. I specialize in process improvements and consider myself a creative problem solver who is able to think outside the box for the most beneficial ways to effect solutions.
Photography is one of my passions and I take a lot of my own shots for my client’s products for e-commerce and marketing materials, as well as landscape and flowers for my own pleasure. I love to learn new things in everything I do and take pride in assisting people.
I find joy in helping solve problems, find solutions, and work out processes to relieve some of the stress and frustrations small business owners and solopreneurs feel when they try to do it all themselves. When they realize there are just not enough hours in the day, or they don't know how to do some things and don't have the time or the inclination to learn! I feel like I’m coming to the rescue! Let’s save the day . . . well, okay, let’s save a few hours in the day!
Oh, and that first client? I still work with her.
