“I love being able to support new VAs as they experience the fun, hard work, and joy that a new business brings!”
What I Do at AssistU
I’m a mentor.
I started my journey to Virtual Assistance as a restaurant manager and later, as a systems engineer for a restaurant software company. I did not have any formal experience in administrative work, but was always drawn to work that let me help people most. As a manager, it was for customers and staff, as a systems engineer, it was to help new restaurateurs realize their dreams.
I loved doing this, but another change came into my life in 2005, in the form of a baby boy. It was impractical for me to continue a job that required travel and late nights, and to be honest, it was not something I wanted to do. I began to search for a solution. I started looking for a way to use my administrative and customer service skills, and while searching the internet one day, I discovered Virtual Assistance and AssistU.
Now I am lucky enough to work for myself, doing what I love, and helping other people realize their dreams. I set my own hours, have fabulous clients, and get to spend time with my family. I also get the honor of helping new VA’s start their new businesses and set them on the path to their own success stories.

Quirky Things About Me
- My office color is Lavender Heather.
- I LOVE puzzles. Crossword, logic, jigsaw, Sudoku—I’ve never met a puzzle I didn’t love!
- Baking makes me happy. Not so much so that I would want to do it full-time, but in occasional doses, I like being able to make something delicious.
- I use way too many exclamation points and smiley faces in my casual online conversations!!!!!!!
