Administrative Virtual Assistant
I’m a coffeeholic single mom to two amazing teenage girls, and I thrive on helping others. I’ve been working as an administrative assistant (I use the term loosely as I wear many hats) for 12 plus years, and really can’t think of anything I’d rather do, and I thought, why help just one when I can help many?
Wearing many hats, my ‘job’ is never boring, and it allows me the flexibility to attend my daughters’ activities and just be there for them when I’m needed.
This is not the life I had planned, but it is the life I love!
How I got where I am today and how I can help you on your journey
In my junior year of high school, I got my first ‘real’ job doing clerical work for a collections division of a large financial company.
My plan was to work there until I started college, where I was pursuing a teaching career, and then focus on school.
Five years later I was still there. In the middle of my senior year of college, the office closed down which is probably the only reason I’m not still there today.
My passion and dedication to everything that I do kept me there to the end.
After graduating from college, I got married and moved to Alaska where I started substitute teaching. I found that really loved the flexibility it offered. I could choose when and where I wanted to work. If I didn’t like a class, I didn’t have to go back (that only happened once).
The downside to subbing was that I didn’t get to do the lesson planning and creating, which is what I’m best at, and what I enjoy the most.
About a year after my first child was born we decided it wasn’t cost-effective for me to continue working. I was miserable for the first few months because I just didn’t have anything to do (I am most definitely not Suzy Homemaker). Then I got involved with the MOMS Club….
Not only did I make new friends and have activities to keep us busy, but I was able to take on some responsibility managing and sending out our group’s calendar. I felt needed again and it was great.
Then we moved to Oregon to be closer to family and I was miserable again. I knew I had to go back to work. I tried subbing again but found I just didn’t enjoy it as I once did. I wanted to be creating things.
In 2007 I started working for a start-up company that created online courses for senior care professionals. It was the best of both worlds. I was still in the education realm, but I got to put my administrative and creative skills to use as well. Most importantly – I was helping others GET STUFF DONE!
Back then I did it all, answering the phone, processing payments, managing student enrollments, proofing content, building courses – anything under the administrative umbrella, I probably did at some point.
Now that the company is part of a larger company, I don’t get to do as much of the administrative work and while I love what I do and don’t want to give it up, I do miss working in the start-up realm and getting to wear many hats.
Hence my venturing out on my own and starting an administrative virtual assistant business.
A business where I can showcase my organizational and creative skills to help others achieve their goals.
I help entrepreneurs and online educators who are struggling to find the time and the skills needed to produce their user-friendly courses. I help them offload their admin tasks and build out their courses so they can focus on the tasks that help them reach their business goals and reclaim their free time!
Having the flexibility to work when and where I choose so I can be there for my girls when I’m needed and not miss a game or event in their lives is important to me.
Are you ready to have that same flexibility? Are you ready to offload the tasks you don’t enjoy and/or don’t have the skills to complete?
Don’t keep piling papers on your desk and telling yourself you’ll get to them later.
No more missing deadlines and not delivering what you promised.
You need a virtual workhorse for all the things you don’t have time for!
