Virtual Assistant, Writer and Public Relations Assistant.
As a Swiss army knife type assistant with Virtual Assistant courses completed, I have focused on being an indispensable assistant in many fields, including the real estate and wine industries. I am skilled in office automation, various business applications, customer service, and marketing. I am proficient in scheduling and planning, as well as office management, both in person and remotely. I am detail oriented, motivated and have a demonstrated ability to keep a work environment running smoothly. I have many years’ experience with MS Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, and some Photoshop and Illustrator experience.
My expertise in the food, wine and pop culture fields has lead to opportunities for publishing articles in the genres of pop culture, lifestyles and food and wine for local publications and online webzines. I have worked directly with PR companies, publishing companies, musicians, and authors to write reviews and articles about comic books, music, novels, games, and more.
As a PR Assistant, I have worked with industry professionals to promote emerging businesses, musicians and artists, and events. I am experienced in writing press releases and artist bios, as well as mass email to established email lists.
