Thank you so much for considering me for your Virtual Assistant Role. I’m Amy Rose, a motivated and enthusiastic self-starter who has exceeded expectations in every position I have ever had!

In my 10+ years of professional experience working with various businesses, I have noticed a trend. I start roles to help with administrative duties, and quickly receive larger and more complex projects as I demonstrate my capabilities. I truly thrive off challenges! I’m looking for a business or professional that is open to finding a VA that can help take them to the next level.

I have been lucky enough to travel to many parts of the world and work with wonderful businesses. I am now fully settled in British Columbia, and I’m ready to take on my next role.

If it sounds like we’d be a good fit for each other, please do reach out and connect with me!
