    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.

    I have more than ten years of experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating a broad spectrum of complex commercial agreements and successfully handling transactional matters. While I have experience working with Fortune 500 companies, the focus of my practice has been in working with startups, emerging companies and entrepreneurs through all stages of organizational lifecycle. Objectives and Professional Philosophy: My objective is to understand and balance a client’s strategic business objectives with the legal process and risk mitigation, and to proactively address potential liabilities. My work product should not only reflect a client’s intent, it should be reflective of the client’s professionalism (and mine). I don’t “dabble” in practice areas in which I don’t have sufficient experience, and do not expect a client to pay me to learn something I don’t already possess a firm grasp of. Following are some of the types of agreements/transactions I have significant experience handling: • Intellectual Property Protection Agreements, Policies (Nondisclosure Agreements, Proprietary Information and Invention Assignment Agreements, Trade Secret Protection Policies, and Brand Image Policies) • Website Terms (Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policies, and Terms of Use/Service) • Employment Agreements, Consulting/Advisory Agreements • Company Formation Documents (Operating Agreements for LLCs, Bylaws for corporations, Organizational Consents, Shareholder and Buy/Sell Agreements) • Partnership Agreements, Joint Venture Agreements, Management Agreements • Supply Chain Agreements (Procurement, Manufacturing, Supply and Distribution) • Disposition Agreements (Asset Purchase; Stock Purchase; Mergers & Acquisitions) • Business Visas and Immigration (H-1B, TN, E-2, L and EB categories) and Family-Based Immigration (Marriage to US Citizen, Adjustment of Status, Permanent Residency, Green Card, Citizenship) My professional experience includes my current solo practice as an attorney/business advisor, and also includes in-house work for an integrated consumer electronics company in the Bay Area, and more than six years as an Associate (Emerging Companies Practice Group) with an international AmLaw 100 law firm. I have maintained State Bar licensure (in good standing) since my admittance in 2003, and would be happy to provide my complete resume and verification of my credentials upon request. (I am new to oDesk, and am thus offering a reduced hourly rate.)  less

    Being a freelancer is not always, in my reality-based opininon, unqualified to do some works. On the contrary, sometimes a freelancer could give you a unique, surprising, shock and attractive result experience of a project. As an interpreter and translator, I always have a faith that interpreting and translating is an art to change the word's form, from one to another language by maintaining the original taste of the origin language. Moreover, the main priority of these activities is to produce a translation that could gain the people’s highest comprehension by observing the targeted language development. It requires skills and creativities for the translator/interpreter itself. With the ability, skill and 4 years eperience in this field, I would be glad to offer my services to anyone who need by providing a high quality result to reach a mutual benefits.  less
