I enjoy working as a Virtual Assistant and helping people with providing excellent presentations, documents and running their routine office admin while they focus on their own business.
I started my business as a Virtual Assistant in 1999. I provided secretarial services to local businesses in Melbourne and to students, entrepreneurs, business consultants, sole traders, universities, associations. Most of the work involved assistance with typing assignments, business documents, resumes, word processing and formatting of documents. I also assisted job seekers with their resumes and obtaining work during periods when companies closed and employees made redundant. As the internet grew, I started working with international clients in word processing and digital transcriptions. Working as a VA online increased my knowledge of online web applications. I developed skills in Web sites, Blogs, social media, networking online. Prior to 1999 I worked as a Personal Assistant/ Secretary for various organisations including Academic, Healthcare, financial, legal, manufacturing companies. My secretarial qualification gave me skills to work in any area. With the introduction of computers in the 1980s I was given sole responsibility of word processing of all company policies, procedures and standard documents electronically. Throughout my career I have worked in senior confidential roles requiring professionalism, integrity and high skills. I have high skills in Typing and data entry with high accuracy and terminology.
I have enjoyed working as a freelance Virtual Assistant and look forward to working with you.
