Before starting my practice in 1997, I worked for over 10 years supporting executive level professionals, partners and board members with a heavy concentration in sales and marketing, as well as executive office management and support.
In 1997, I opened up The Virtual Secretary providing virtual administrative assistant services. After a few years working as a VA, I found my passion in online marketing which led me to open a new business offering web site and graphic design, SEO consulting and other internet marketing services. The Virtual Link was established in 2000.
The Virtual Link offers online internet marketing services, including but not limited to web sites, graphics, logos, email marketing campaigns, social media consulting and managment and more!
As of 2019, I have worked as a Virtual Assistant for over 22 years. I have learned a lot since 1997 and the industry has certainly changed a lot since then as well. When I started my business, working virtually was unheard of. Now, it's commonplace to contract out positions and work remotely. I honestly feel that virtual assistants paved the path to understanding how much businesses can save by hiring a virtual assistant
In 2000, I was approached about coaching an individual so she could start her own business. I really enjoyed helping her find her industry and start her business. It led me to open my virtual assistant coaching services, The 30 Day VA , to help coach and guide other virtual assistants to launch their own VA business.

Making Your Web Debut
"She gave really good instruction on building a website. I've already put into practice some of what she shared."
"Very good; appreciated pros and cons approach."
"I enjoyed all three, but the most valuable to me was probably the "Making Your Web Debut". I'm now forced to start over and correct all of the web page faux pas I was creating in my web design..."
Favorite session: "The Making your Web Debut. I enjoyed hearing her give points and hints on web design and designers. I tell my clients many of the same things she has said and it really solidified my thinking on web design as well."
