    Virtual Assistant/Consultant

    United States - Last active: 4 months ago - Tests: 4

    For the past 20+ years, I have been a grant writer, project manager, and virtual assistant for corporations and non-profits. I am strategic and passionate in assisting organizations and businesses in setup, organizing, fundraising, and marketing. Though I have an extensive profile of the various organizations, ministries, and companies I have assisted in becoming successful, I am extremely modest about "tooting my own horn" for I firmly believe in being in background proudly watching individuals and companies soar. I am greatly experienced in Microsoft Office, Quickbooks, and Adobe Acrobat. I have some technical savvy in troubleshooting minor computer issues. I am also a customer service expert and a strong networker. Tracie is a member of the American Grant Writer's Association and the International Virtual Assistant's Association.
