“Michelle contributes at a very high level,…is a consummate professional and a great strategic addition to any small business owner.”
Michelle has become a very important part of my business, in a much more strategic way than one might expect from a VA. She contributes at a very high level, understanding me and my business and proactively making suggestions and improvements that not only streamline things and help me to be more effective, but also support my firm’s growth and expansion. She’s helped me book regular speaking gigs and events, connected me with great resources, and recruited and expanded my team, all while seamlessly managing the day-to-day operations and details that keep things running smoothly and moving forward. This is perhaps one of the greatest gifts of Michelle’s support – I can completely trust that the important administrative tasks will get done such that I don’t need to think about it at all. Working with Michelle frees me up to spend more of my energy and time on the most strategic aspects of my business, and has been a huge support in growing my business to the next level and beyond. Michelle is a consummate professional and a great strategic addition to any small business owner that is ready to take their business to the next level.

“Michelle is the kind of virtual assistant that you want to have…it is a true gift to have her in my corner.”
Michelle is the kind of virtual assistant that you want to have. She is prompt, professional and excels at delivering quality service. If she is not already an expert, she will research and master the various processes and platforms that make me want to go hide in a corner. She frees me up to focus my attention on what I do best while also keeping me in the loop on everything else. She is constantly brainstorming new ways to strengthen my business in a way that makes me feel so supported and empowered.
She does all of this with kindness, compassion and grace. Working with Michelle is a complete pleasure. Not only does she make my life and business so much easier, but she does so in a way that shows that she is invested in my business and the work that we do together. Michelle helps others be their best so that they can be of greater service to their clients, communities and the world at large. I would recommend her without hesitation on a professional and personal level. Michelle is a treasure and it is a true gift to have her in my corner.

Michelle is a highly diligent, committed, and skillful administrator. After hiring her a year ago, I am pleased to now be able to call her a strategic partner of my business. She comes with thoughtful recommendations and solutions, not just questions. She is dedicated to not only doing great work, but takes pleasure in knowing her contribution to fulfilling on my business vision. Her contributions to my efficiency and effectiveness, not to mention peace of mind, have been significant. The advancements in my business over the past year are at an all time high, thanks in a large part to her support. I highly recommend Michelle!

“Michelle truly cares about the development of you and your business…She is quite simply, the best!”
“Support” inadequately expresses Michelle’s role. She truly cares about the development of you and your business. I could count on Michelle to handle clients and technical, back end details equally. I looked forward to our regular meetings because we accomplished agenda items and refreshed our spirits simultaneously (although I’m quite certain I benefited more from Michelle than she did from me). She exudes a quiet confidence and genuine caring and her high standards combined with her impeccable personal boundaries meant that work arrived ahead of deadline and she always had suggestions for improvements. It was a true pleasure working with her. She is quite simply, the best!

“In my 20-plus years of executive work, Michelle was clearly one of the best assistants I had.”
A key to the success of any executive is a competent and reliable assistant. In my 20-plus years of executive work, Michelle was clearly one of the best assistants I had. The reliable and proactive support she provided allowed me to execute my responsibilities as a Sr. Vice President without care for the areas I had entrusted to her. She carried out the day-to-day planning, coordination, scheduling and other needs of the team I led. She performed this work in partnership with many of the other support staff across the organization. Michelle proved that she is highly capable in managing the ongoing and special project needs of an executive. She communicates and engages effectively with staff across the organization and builds real relationships that enable the success of the individuals and teams she serves. In addition to her professional skills, Michelle brings an attitude of service and is a pleasure to work with.

While working in the Global Project Management Department at Compassion International, I worked very closely with Michelle. During that time I was the Sr. Portfolio Manager and responsible for the Strategic Project Portfolios that were in excess of $30M.
I relied on Michelle’s many skills and talents to make certain reports were accurate and completed in a timely manner to executive leadership. She also assisted in maintaining the department portal and did research into process improvements and strategies and managed the calendar and schedules for the many project stage gates.
Michelle is a very detailed-oriented team player who will do extraordinary work for anyone who has entrusted her to do so.
