Virtual assistant and freelance writer
Last active: 10/29/2014
I have over 8 years experience in a variety of professional settings, which has allowed me to hone a very diverse skill set. I studied creative writing an the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, then studied Sociology and Dance in college, and then earned a Master's in Social Work. While I am very passionate about creative expression and helping others, these fields do not tend to be high income-generating! I have therefore always needed multiple sources of income to meet my financial goals. I have worked for real estate agents, universities, professors, researchers, social service agencies, marketing agencies, and nonprofit organizations. I am a fast typer, an eloquent writer, and a self-motivated worker. I work very well independently and can accomplish a variety of tasks efficiently. I am proficient with all Microsoft Office software. I have experience with website design and maintenance, and with real estate lead generating tools such as Craigslist and Market Leader. I also have experience conducting research and data entry in Excel and SPSS. As an artist and a fashion model, I have also developed a keen aesthetic eye. I just moved to New York from New Orleans and am looking for jobs both big and small, long and short term, to help me get (and stay) on my feet.
