Word Lover, Problem Solver
I have two passions: words and problem solving.
My mother (an English teacher) sparked in me a deep love of words, books, and puns. In school, I was the nerdy girl with her nose buried in a book as she walked down the hall. As an adult, I always have at least one book in my purse, ready for the slightest bit of down time.
My love of problem solving grew on the job, as I discovered a knack for tackling problems with technology, especially streamlining tasks without sacrificing effectiveness. I often told my coworkers “If it seems like it’s taking too long, tell me. I will find you a faster way.”
I’m a Word Worker’s Sidekick
As publishing becomes more accessible to writers, it also becomes more complicated to manage all the aspects of your business. The internet is full of cheap virtual assistant houses—and you get what you pay for. If you’re looking for a cheap, low-interaction solution, I’m not the answer for you. However, if you’re looking for a trusty sidekick to support you, to troubleshoot for you, and to relieve you from the administrative burden attendant with your success, you’ve just met the right girl.
My Service-Minded Approach
I’ve spent the last twelve years working as an executive assistant in various capacities, but here’s where I’m different from most virtual assistants: my experience is not “corporate.” All my experience is with small business owners—people who, out of necessity, must remain keenly focused on every aspect of their business. Does this sound familiar?
Most recently, I spent five years supporting the co-founders of a rapidly growing trio of conference centers in Philadelphia. In hospitality, two things matter: impeccable service and delivery on promises. These core qualities, along my enthusiastic and positive attitude, guide everything I do.
My Nerdy Experience with Data, Systems and Media
For more on my past experience, including social media and email strategy, developing highly detailed sales analysis, technology support, and managing the detailed complexities of human resources administration, you’re welcome to check out my LinkedIn profile. Otherwise, all you need to know is that the people I’ve worked with found me to be highly reliable, attuned both to big picture details as well as their individual preferences, and unfailingly cheerful. The co-founder of my last company said he’d trust me in a room with a million dollars cash.
Work with me and I’ll give you what you desperately crave: more time to write.
