I’m Ashley, and I want to help you and your business THRIVE.
I have over a decade of professional experience, in which I utilized and expanded my technical and administrative skills. I also went to school while I wasn’t at work, and received my Bachelor’s degree in International Business in French. I can’t even begin to express how much I learned and evolved during the time depicted in my resume.
Why Effervescent Efficiency?
Efficiency is something that is wholly important to me. Why have an instruction manual if it causes so much confusion that I’m taking notes on my questions rather than proceeding with the work? Instead, I believe in fully comprehensive instruction — and I love to get creative with it. Why spend unnecessary time repeating mundane tasks that could be automated? Automating tasks is one of my favorite things to do, and I have been doing it for as long as I can remember. At the heart of it — why waste your precious time doing all of the time-consuming background tasks? You have much more important things to take care of — your talent, skill, and knowledge run your business, and you need to direct your focus on managing and growing your business. Oh, and that’s something else I love to do!
“Effervescent” is where my personality shines. Effervescent (adj.) means bubbly — and no matter where I’ve been in life, no matter how busy I am, no matter the obstacles I’ve encountered, no matter the number of obligations I face, — a bubbly persona remains at the forefront of my being. I love life — it is what inspires me! I love people — meeting people, working alongside people, helping people and working for people. Learning and working are two of my favorite things. I find joy in everything, and I have fun doing what I do! Seriously. How many people do you know who are literally equally as ecstatic about making spreadsheets, streamlining processes, bookkeeping, and creating procedural documentation as they are about graphic design, social media presence, and other creative and amazing virtual endeavors?
Creating Effervescent Efficiency as a virtual assistant firm just made so much sense to me. I wish I had started it many years sooner! I am an enthusiastic self-proclaimed workaholic who loves to help people. Now I can help people all over the world with streamlining, enhancing, and beautifying their businesses — and continue to grow both as a person and a professional.
