    Virtual Assistant

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4

    I enjoy doing daily tasks and one-off projects to lighten the load for professionals that cannot worry about the details. I am a great candidate for everything from managing email accounts that seem out of control, recording voice prompts, editing educational curriculum, managing WordPress accounts, and writing articles, to creating and formatting presentations and business forms and documents. I really like to call myself the Jill of all trades and strive to make all things transparent for my clients. I am also a homeschooling mother, and am looking for contracts that will continue to enable me to indulge in this passion. I am excited to explore opportunities with new clients.
