My Virtual Assistant Journey

I am a former Executive Assistant who transitioned into a career as a Virtual Assistant in 2001. Since 2013, I've been sharing my knowledge of this industry with others in various settings, including as an Adult Ed instructor (for Loudoun County Public Schools) teaching the course How to Work From Home As a Virtual Assistant.

Through my website AuthorAndSpeakerServices.com, I offer virtual assistant services (including full publishing project management and book marketing planning) to authors and speakers around the country.

I am also an award-winning self-published young adult author (writing under a pseudonym), and a member of the International Association of Administrative Professionals, the Women's National Book Association, and the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO).

I live, write, sing, and work from home in North Carolina.
