Who I Am
How I Got Here
My name is Mary and I’m a Virginia native who just recently moved to Philadelphia from Chicago in the middle of a pandemic. Getting to know a new city where you don’t know anyone can be hard as is, but boy is it hard when leaving the house is considered a threat to your health and safety. Luckily, I have my two cats (Sid Vicious and Little Miss Vixen) and my partner to keep me company in the mean time.
For the last five years I have worked in the food service industry, mastering tenacity, patience and precision, by managing unique groups of people, working closely with business owners and their operations managers, and cultivating the impeccable time management it takes to be a key player in a dinner service rush. When the pandemic affected my ability to show up effectively for my job, I saw this as an opportunity use my organizational skills, attention to detail, and ability to anticipate the needs of others to help those around me... well those virtually! My hospitable spirit continues to serve me outside of the service industry and the desire I have to help people and make a difference in their lives remains a constant motivation in this new endeavor of mine.
As a line cook, I took my chef’s recipes and transformed them into tangible products to create magical guest experiences, leaving them with more time to develop new creations and touch base with guests, making sure their business was thriving. Similarly, as your Virtual Assistant, I aim to help you tackle the mundane parts of your day so you can cultivate your ideal work-life balance and focus on what truly makes your heart sing!Interested in working with me?
