Why work with me?
Becoming a Virtual Assistant turned out to be the best decision I could have made. I LOVE my clients and the connection we create together that culminates in our working as solid team.
After being employed in the corporate world and working in the administrative field for many years I was happy to say Good Bye to being under-valued, underpaid, expected to work overtime on short notice, not listened to, and forgotten until an emergency happens …… I felt I had so much more to offer. Now I had found a way to put my expertise to work with a small and select circle of clients.
See, you and I have to feel that we’re a good “fit.” We are going to be a formidable team creating amazing things together.
I was born and raised in Germany and immigrated to Canada as an adult. After obtaining My Teachers Degree and could not find a job I started working as an administrative assistant. After a few years I was personal/confidential secretary of the Senior Vice President and happy. Then, I immigrated to Canada and found that my experience was not validated; I had to start at the bottom again.
After 20+ years in the Corporate World I was introduced to AssistU and its training program for Virtual Assistants. As they say … the rest is history. I haven’t looked back since.
I love exploring new tools, and have been the co-leader of AssistUs Efficiency Tools Special Interest Group. The group’s purpose was to share knowledge among AssistU members; to learn of, and to explore, new tools or practices. Being an active member of the AssistU community also gives me access to its vast membership site resources.
On a personal note, I have been an active member of a local Toastmasters group for 8 years; I sat on its Executive for 4 of these years, as Sargent of Arms, and as VP Membership. Taking a twenty-week long writing course helped me deal with some of my inhibitions I had about my writing skills for many years.
Think we might be a good fit?
