Virtual What?

Virtual Assistants are professional administrative support people who are independent contractors hired to do administrative work usually from outside of your office. Because they are professionals, you save training costs; because they are contractors, you save employment costs; and because they are virtual, you save space and equipment costs.

Virtual Assistants, VAs, can specialize in many different skills. I am a bookkeeper, executive assistant, have experience with small government contractors preparing incurred cost proposals (and I can explain the basic concepts), and create professional flow charts and organization charts . Other VAs specialize in transcriptions, web design, publishing, or any number of other skills.
