Virtual Assistant

I have been offering virtual assistant services since 2010. I’ve worked with nonprofits, small businesses, and individuals on a variety of tasks and projects including data entry, project management, research, scheduling, social media management, event management, community development, and editing. I specialize in assisting writers, academics, and organizations. I’ve also worked with educational institutions and small businesses.

Over the years, I’ve assisted companies and nonprofits in scaling up their output by providing crucial administrative support and assistance. Some examples include: scheduling and data entry that allowed a new nonprofit to greatly expand their supporter and donor lists; event and social media management for a writing school that dramatically increased student and event registration; research and proposal editing for a literary agent that helped discover and evaluate high-profile and celebrity clients.

My Experience:

I have a BA in English from Occidental College and an MFA in Writing from Antioch University. I have excellent writing, communication, and editorial skills. I’m tech savvy, creative, and resourceful. I have experience working with: Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Acrobat, Audition, and Photoshop, MailChimp and Tiny Letter, Google Drive and Dropbox, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram,, Canva, Hootsuite, and more.

I’ve been working remotely for over a decade, and I always go the extra mile to be accessible, responsive, and reliable.
