Service Description

By my overview you can see how my skills fit in to your needs. I am flexible in learning other skills that you would need for us to work together.

Always, expanding my knowledge.

For the positions on Elance, being as they are virtual and not hands on the interaction between us is based on trust and I like that. I would like to provide services to those who feel I am the person they can trust with their information.

To the other businesses looking for office assistance, I am willing to add skills. So if you don't see something you need done, let me know and if I feel I am capable of performing it, I will do my best for you. I have used only a couple scheduling programs, but am proficient in learning new programs. Tutorials are my...
