Executive Administrative Assistant
Last active: 2 months ago
During the last 17 years, I've been employed as an Corporate Operations Officer, Operations Manager, Administrative Assistant, Executive Secretary, Office Manager and Business Process Manager with an emphasis on Sarbanes Oxley Compliance.
I left my most recent position as the Corporate Operations Officer of an internet retail company, having grown the business from 3 outsourced employees working from their homes, to a company with a rapidly expanding brick an mortar location and 35+ employees. While an accomplishment like this is very rewarding, I felt the owners were steering too far from their original mission statement and were not providing the support needed for such rapid expansion.
I've developed exceptional written and verbal communication skills and enjoy working with fellow employees, customers and vendors to develop beneficial relationships. I'm adept at both DOS and Mac operating systems, proficient in all Microsoft applications, Google Business Applications, task management systems including Omnifocus and Asana and many cloud based platforms. I'm able to follow direction well, have a keen eye for detail and type 55 wpm without errors.
During the course of my freelance employment I've been responsible for recruiting and hiring exceptional employees, managed Human Resources, payroll, scheduling and execution of all aspects of business licensing and taxation. I've also completed many research, transcription and data entry projects, created and maintained Excel spreadsheets, databases on several different platforms and have been responsible for creating standard processes for task completion and resolving disputes.
I have a pleasant, clear speaking voice, have access to both Skype and Google Voice and have expertise in using online meeting, desktop sharing, and video conferencing software. I'm very detail oriented but don't get bogged down by intricacies taking time to triage tasks as needs emerge, capable of working in unsupervised situations and am driven to meet deadlines.
