I received my passion for Office Management Executive Assistant while working atAmalgamated Bank. Amalgamated Bank gave my the opportunity to grow, expand myknowledge and gave me the education and tools to advance. Upon my relocation to Atlanta, GAI was not sure if I wanted to go back into the corporate world, so I decided to go back to schooland obtain another degree in Business Management as a class project we had to develop acompany, it was so interesting that I decided to create my own business “Superior SecretarialServices” a Virtual Assistant for Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs. After joining theRockdale Chamber of Commerce and other Social Networking groups my business grew from aVirtual Assistant to a full Small Business because everyone needed someone to complete theirAdministrative Assignments but could not afford to hire someone on a full time basis, Ireceived so many assignments that I moved Superior Secretarial Service into an employmentservice where I contracted staff to work from home to various businesses, while working fulltime positions. Five years later I realized that I really miss the Corporate World and NYC , I miss theexcitement , fast pace and the competitive activity of Manhattan . I am looking for a companythat I can apply my skills and knowledge. A new adventure where I can stay for twenty yearslike I did at Amalgamated Bank to grow, advance and learn.
