My name is Carol Murchie and you can find my new virtual assistance business at www.yourvirtualsherpa.com.

 

I just launched Your Virtual Sherpa at the end of May 2012. It seemed a logical transition from conventional careers and jobs because I have re-invented myself in many ways over the past several years. At this time I am getting the word out and hoping to get new client prospects identified.

 

My original training is in librarianship (Master's Degree from the University of Michigan) and after several years in the traditional field, I moved onto database conversion specifications and project management for an electronic publisher. With consolidation in the industry, I worked as a contractor and consultant with primary focus on more database management, indexing, research, and in more recent years I worked as a finance manager for a nonprofit where I largely taught myself Quickbooks and some accounting.

 

My chief skills are in conducting research (just about anything you can think of, from harpoons to land disposition laws), organizing databases, search engine technology, and nonprofit governance. My technology toolbelt has included various Web search engines and browsers, Quickbooks, Microsoft Office, Documentum, Lotus Notes, Blackbaud Raiser's Edge, Re: Discovery Museum software, Past Perfect Museum software, and Wordpress. I continue to take advantage of any new technology training or hands-on practice for same. My alternative tagline for Your Virtual Sherpa is "Let me go crazy so you won't have to!"

 

I live in Fairhaven Massachusetts with my two cats, Henry and Duncan. They serve as paperweights in the office. I have a concierge service locally for pet-sitting and even have helped people get their car's problems fixed when they are too busy flying around the world to do it themselves!

 

I look forward to being part of a fascinating universe of people who are equally talented in all sorts of things--I'm still a librarian in that I love to help people through referrals when a task falls outside my generalist "grab-bag" of goodies!

Thanks Tawnya and Traci!

 

By the way, Tawnya, seeing as you are based in Vancouver I should alert you that I am NOT related to Murchie's Teas, at least not close enough to have ever gotten free tea from them when I ordered in the past. A pity, that. I realize the family sold it to a conglomerate or some such thing but it still is a kick to have my last name on something. :coffee:
