Taking Your content from good to great
Hi, my name is Heather, and as a mom myself, I know how difficult it can be to find that work/life balance. As a Virtual Assistant, I strive to use my skills to help out the other mompreneurs out there. If you're a female business owner, blogger, crafter, or just a mom who needs some help, I'm here for you. (Don't worry, though - if you were born with an XY set of chromosomes, I'll still help you out!)
As an your VA, I can help you with a multitude of tasks, but I especially love anything to do with editing or proofreading. Words were my first true love, and I’ve been reading since I was a tiny little girl. In college, I discovered the joy of editing, and I knew that’s what I’d like to do with my life. I’ve always enjoyed writing, but there is a certain pleasure in taking someone else’s words and making them come to life.
With a degree in English Literature, and almost 20 years’ experience as an administrative assistant, I have all the tools necessary to help you take your newsletters, blog, or social media content from drab to daring. I can also help you research, edit, and proofread your webpage, e-book, or even just tidy up a word document! Nothing would make me happier than helping you turn out amazing copy!
When I’m not working, I love spending time outdoors. Hiking, camping, and backpacking are all fun, but I also enjoy just working in my vegetable garden or tending my bees. My husband is a world-class foodie, and we go on lots of eating adventures together (our honeymoon was a 10-day restaurant-hopping road trip). Lastly, we have two amazing children. They make both eating out and backpacking more difficult … but that’s ok, because they are super cute!
I am very grateful that I am finally at a point in life where I can make a living out of my love of the written word. This career is rewarding in so many ways. Not only has it allowed me to rediscover my creativity and love of editing, but it also allows me to spend more (much-needed!) time with my little family. I hope that by helping you to lighten your load, you can find more time to rediscover what you love!
