About 10 years ago, one of my employers shut its doors and I decided it was a good time to start my own virtual assistant business. Since then, I've supported up to 12 clients at a time, while still hitting all the deadlines presented to me. If you're looking for a solid asset to bring on, invite me to your job! Tech details: I am pro-Apple. I have a 2023 MacBook​ Pro, use dual monitors and have 100+mbps WiFi. I find this tends to put me at an advantage when it comes to sheer ability to complete tasks efficiently. Working style: I am happy to work solo or in a team setting, but I prefer working autonomously. I aim to hit inbox zero every day and will work late if needed to hit my goal. Accountability is one of my strengths, so when we work together, you won't see a confirmation on each email/task saying 'got it!' which clogs up your inbox even more - instead, you'll see the work getting done and can rest easy. Past client types and industries: I have worked with super fresh start-ups, nonprofits, large corporations and solopreneurs. I have worked with too many industries to list, but they vary from big data, medical, fitness to beauty… and beyond.
