Boost Virtual Services began as an idea back in 2002. I was enrolled in the Applied Business Technology course (formerly the Office Administration program) at the College of New Caledonia and our final assignment was to produce a PowerPoint presentation on a topic of the students’ choice. I decided to research work-at-home opportunities for administrative assistants and that was when I discovered the field of Virtual Assistance! I knew this was the avenue that I ultimately wished to follow.
After graduating with honours from the ABT course, I was hired by a local non-profit organization who cared for the needs of adults with developmental disabilities. We ran up to three group homes and a number of separate day programs and had the privilege of working with up to 17 clients.
Letters, forms, lists, flyers and invitations were all regularly needed by the association for the various events and functions held for the clients. I also handled the staff scheduling for the group homes, payroll for staff and clients, accounts payable and receivable, and organizing training sessions for staff.
In the years since starting with that non-profit agency, I have been able to develop my skills in document production, desktop publishing, and website design and I’m happy to continue learning and growing in these areas.
I am pleased to have the opportunity to start a new phase in my administrative career by launching Boost Virtual Services. Find out what services I offer and learn more about the field of virtual assistance by clicking on the links in the menu bar at the top of the page.
And as always, Thank You for visiting Boost Virtual Services!
