Hello everybody, I'm Doris Susana and this is my first introduction on this forum. I've been reading and digesting a lot of information. This is a very informative forum! Anyway, I'm new to the VA industry and I'm looking into becoming a VA at first as a part-time hustle and then (hopefully) on a full-time basis. I have 15+ years in the legal field as a legal secretary. I've worked primary in the Litigation, Corporate and Trust & Estates practice areas. I also have an Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies, but have not really worked as a paralegal. I would love to start out as a General VA. I do lots of legal transcription, proofreading, and some translation and interpreting at work. I would love to use some these skills too. Here's my information:
