    I am your value-added solution to achieving balance and improving productivity. I have several years' experience as an Executive Assistant, Personal Assistant, Operating Executive and entrepreneur. In 2011, I co-founded a middle-market private equity firm based out of Atlanta, GA. As a small, family office to start, my duties were primarily admin-related and primarily virtual. As our business grew, my role in operations did, as well. At the time I made the decision to leave to start my virtual assistant business, I held the position of Director of Operations. I have extensive managerial and customer service experience. In addition, I am experienced in legal research, data entry, transcribing, travel planning, financial tracking, as well as various other operations. I operate out of a fully equipped, dedicated home office to improve productivity. I have high speed internet, faxing capabilities, and a dedicated office line in addition to a cell line. I am proficient in Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, iCal, iCloud, Gmail, Google Docs, Infusionsoft, Zoho, and various social media outlets. I am a very quick learner and will do my best to become familiar with any other program I am tasked with using.
