I have been a "virtual assistant" since 1983, when I started my own word processing business with a CPM computer and WordStar.
Since then I have assisted realtors, accountants, insurance agents and adjusters, contractors, printers and many other small businesses. My equipment and software is continually upgraded and expanded and now includes the latest Microsoft Office products and high-speed internet. I am constantly upgrading my skills, as well.
I am a member of the International Virtual Assistants Association and the Real Estate Virtual Assistants Network.
