    Virtual Assistant

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10

    I am looking to work from home as my family dynamic changes a little bit. I love to write and pride myself on well constructed sentences and my ability to be understood. I have been writing since I was young. I've been published in several magazines and simply enjoy the act of putting words down on paper. I am MS Office and Google Application literate. I am familiar with many different online applications and programs and would consider myself computer savvy. I use Trello and TickTick in my everyday life in order to help me keep myself organized. I'm familiar with using WordPress and Facebook. Where I really shine is research. Being able to research for someone else is an art. You have to be able to make decisions on what information needs to be presented and how. You have to consider the different variables that the client would be considering. If you come out of research and cannot help them make a call based on findings, then you're not very effective in your work. This takes confidence to find a solution and present all of the found material, integrity to present the information even when it may not be what a client wants to hear, and the analytic skill to find a solution when there does not seem to be one present. I possess all of these traits and that makes my time spent researching well worth it.
