Angelica Gomez – Sales, Social Media and Executive Assistance
Hi! My name is Angelica but you can call me Ann. I am a proud mother of 2 girls. They are both in elementary and doing so well. I took up Bachelor of Science in Nursing when I was in college because providing help and care to those who are in need is what I love doing the most. But I had to set my priorities straight and decided to change my career path when I had my first baby.
Before starting my career from home, I worked in an office-based company as a customer representative for about a year or two. I handled inquiries, disputes, order processing, billing, and technical support which I considered to be the best training ground in improving my communication skills. Unfortunately, I decided to leave the job because I could no longer endure the long hours of travel due to the traffic situation in my area. I felt that my time waste being put to waste and I was missing a lot of moments with my family, especially with daughters.
Then, I found out about the opportunity of working from home. I landed my first home-based job in an ESL company and worked as a tutor for various types of students from different countries which I enjoyed very much. More doors have opened, one job led to another. Then, I came across a job post regarding Virtual Assistants, and with faith, determination and hard work I was able to get my first gig as a VA.
Now, I’ve been working as an Executive Assistant / General Virtual Assistant for more than 5 years and I am experienced in handling various administrative tasks and knowledgeable in using different tools/applications that are necessary for the job. I can work as a team player and I can work independently as well.
I managed to provide help with great capability for several clients and I am always willing to go over and beyond from personal to professional tasks like travel arrangements, file and document organisation, replying and monitoring emails and text messages, answering and directing calls, billing and accounting activities, writing and keeping records, vetting potential clients and projects, maintaining and updating a client’s social media or professional profile, creating graphics and video advertisements, content writing, data entry, lead generation, and all other related tasks.
Although I have years of experience in this field, I am still open and willing to learn new things that can contribute to achieving our goal. Besides, I strongly believe that this job requires continuous learning and growth.
Being a Virtual Assistant is the best decision I’ve ever made in my career life. I may not see myself as a health care professional anymore but I still get to do what I love and that is helping people who are in need by taking some workload off their plate which is truly fulfilling.
