I’m so glad you’re here. If you’ve landed on this page you must be curious about me aside from being the visionary and CEO of Virtual Hired Hand.
Born and raised in NC, lived in TX for about 4 yrs after college and then came back
Attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Recently married (12-7-12) the ideal man sent by God, Lennon Parson, Jr
Worked in the corporate world for over 12 years, long enough
Was in direct sales as an art consultant where I presented in home art shows for almost 4 yrs
Have been working online full-time since 2008
What brings me joy:
Being able to point people in the right direction when they are unsure about what they should be doing online. Those just getting started online have heard they should be on this and that, but don’t understand why. I get excited being the one holding the flashlight in the midst of the fog.
What saddens me:
It saddens me that many gifted people are still sitting in cubicles when they’ve been called to far greater. The very thing that comes easy to you is the very thing that will create your wealth.
What’s my personal mission:
To free people from the bondage of their cubicle and show them real people do make real money online.
My desire for my website:
To translate technical “geek speak” so it makes sense regardless of skill level.
To teach you how to communicate with your web person so they understand you.
To make you aware of what gets results online using your website, teleclasses, and eNewsletters.
When I’m not online I’m:
*Watching reality TV.
-Flipping Out makes me laugh. It’s also pretty cool how the entire team works from Jeff’s house. Love his housekeeper.
-The Real Housewives of… I know, guilty pleasure.
-Shark Tank when I can remember to watch. Friday evening comes so quick.
-Love Khoe and Lamar! Sweet couples make me smile
*Reading RSS feeds from my iPhone.
*Reading books on business, marriage, finances, self-growth, Christian fiction
*At the movies, mainly for the popcorn. I bring my own water and raisinets. However, I recently started a new meal plan and may not be seeing as many movies.
You’d be surprised to know:
-I’m an only child, which has helped out a lot with working virtually. I really should write a blog post about that.
-I teach a weekly group fitness class at an all women’s gym. It’s more spa like than gym like.
-I’m a closet actress. I come out when someone has written a really good Christian play and requests I audition or lets me know they have a part for me. Clearly they’re on my friends list. LOL! I did do one commercial and was an extra. Not sure if it ever came out, however I did get paid for my time. Oh yeah!
And the corporate side of me is… (in case you’re wondering)…
I have over 12 years of professional experience including software development, customer service, program management, and report analysis.
In 1998, I completed computer training with Chubb Computer Services where I gained knowledge surrounding mainframe software development. This is where my love for technology and computers all began. I later worked in the telecommunications industry as a software engineer.
I have Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Policy Analysis from UNC-Chapel Hill (Go ‘Heels) and have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports Management: Wellness and Fitness from California University of Pennsylvania, my first experience communicating virtually and where I learned the term “virtual assistant.”
