Be yourself; everyone else is already taken - Oscar Wilde
The details (how I got here)
My first administrative job was working directly for the owners of a small manufacturing company in a two-person office. Watching them deal with every issue first hand, I quickly learned the value of being an intuitive and self-motivated assistant who can think like the owner and make things happen. I honed my problem-solving skills and developed effective solutions and systems. I learned to use my creativity to find solutions nobody else thought of.
I eventually moved out of manufacturing and into the legal field where I continued to use these skills to create and maintain effective and efficient procedures, databases, file management systems, and quickly earned the title of Office Ninja. I managed hectic schedules and was often found helping others learn how to work best according to their unique style.
Throughout my career, I have worked for solo attorneys, small law firms, corporate legal departments, and as executive assistant to CEOs and solopreneurs. In each of these roles, I learned to work with different personalities, manage difficult situations, and continued to be actively involved in developing systems to solve problems and inefficiencies. I quickly learned the damage of poor training and apathetic employees, not only to the company’s bottom line, but on the engagement of the top performers within the company, and I worked to improve these situations.
At the beginning of 2020 I left my comfortable corporate job and began to work as a freelancer. I have provided services for an army of C-Suite coaches, a web designer who wanted to build his business to function as an agency, the internal office of a manufacturing company, and for small and solo law firms, finding solutions to a variety of issues as they arise. I’ve selected, set up, and trained teams on project management platforms, implemented and documented standard operating systems, and worked to improve communication and training efficiencies,
I focus on small businesses and entrepreneurs who do not have in-house administrators or COOs and help them determine what they need from their team to grow and succeed, and how to get it.
