I am a results oriented and well-organised professional with experience in accounting, clerical and management reporting. I am an enthusiastic employee experienced in communicating to the management helpful financial information necessary for effective cost management. I am well-disciplined and organised with the ability to manage multiple tasks and work under pressure with minimum supervision. I am skilled in bookkeeping and have the ability to maintain a high level of accuracy.

Prior to being a Virtual Accountant, I served as a Freelance CPA doing Tax preparations locally, a Hotel Accountant, a McDonald’s chain bookkeeper, an Accounting Assistant for SM Department Store and an Assistant for the Vice President for a small mall in our locality.

In order to have a better work-life balance and flexibility, I decided to leave the outside Corporate work and opted to become a Virtual Bookkeeper instead. This zaneta-silvestre-profileway, I can still pursue my profession and at the same time, I can look after my two children.

I am a person who loves variety – like crunching numbers on one side (professionally speaking) while a kitchen aide on the other (personal hobby). I also love working independently and I am well-versed with working with a team.

I love the energy that comes from various tasks and challenges. Multitasking is my thing! Though it is not easy, a person who plans ahead, wins! And I live with the saying, “Fails to plan, plans to fail”. All of my work experience and these characteristics, I firmly believe, are good ingredients to thrive with any Finance VA roles.

I am looking forward to being of service to your company and would love to discuss further the details of how I can help you with this role.
