They say, “the career you started with is NOT the career you will have in 10, 15 years”. Well, that is for darn sure!! After a career in the sales and marketing departments in travel/hospitality industry, I resigned to raise my daughter (work-life balance). Realizing I could only handle so many luncheons and dog walks, I headed back to school to up my knowledge by taking technology, social media, email marketing, Microsoft Office Suite classes and ended up managing a local Chamber of Commerce. Darling daughter is off to college and I am delighted to still be working virtually with the Chamber of Commerce and other small businesses. Here are a couple other tidbits; animal lover, travel enthusiast (let me know your bucket list), history buff, food & wine nut, college football devotee (Roll Tide!) and curious about most things which lead either to getting in trouble or lifelong learner.
A member of International Virtual Assistants Association (IVAA), The Travel Institute, Divas Doing Business, and Chamber of Commerce. Recently, received my certification with the Virtual Assistants Success Academy, Facebook for Business, Leadpages, and currently working on 2 other certifications (life learner).
