I’m Dana, Andrew’s Virtual Assistant. Some of you may have received an email from me or may have heard a bit about me from my fearless leader. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about me – who I am, and how I found myself where I am today.
The majority of my life has been spent in the pursuit of education, in one way or another. From a young age I aspired to gain a solid education, a dream I followed. Today, I have a BA in English and an ivy-league Law Degree. One might think that this background would lead me to a career at a law firm or as in-house counsel at a corporation, but life took me in another direction. Now, I am more of a teacher than a student. I am mother to a 2 year old boy who is happy, strong, healthy, intelligent and inspired by the world around him. I work from home as a Virtual Assistant for Zirtual and am able to stay home and raise him rather than sending him off to someone else daily.
I consider myself quite lucky to have the lifestyle I’m living these days. However modest in comparison to the path I thought I’d be on at this point, it is perfect for where I am right now. Raising a child on one’s own used to be virtually unthinkable, but in the world we live in today, it is definitely doable. If you asked me 5 years ago where I’d be today, I don’t think my answer would have come close to describing the reality of my daily life right now, but I can honestly say there’s nowhere I’d rather be than here, raising my son by myself while working in a growing, 21st century industry as a Zirtual Assistant, working for a company I love and have faith in and serving clients I respect and admire. Who could ask for more than that?
