Hi my name is Anne Marie Doran and I'm starting out as a Virtual Assistant and am still looking for clients.


My website is a work-in-progress at http://amdoranvirtualpa.weebly.com/


I was initially looking at general and medical transcription and creating Order of Services but it was suggested I needed to broaden what I was offering, so I could build a client-base. I am now looking at administration for small businesses as well.


I grew up in Sydney NSW and spent nearly three years in the UK working in both public and private sectors. I have recently returned to the outskirts of Sydney from the Central Coast, hence why I class myself at a Sydney/Central Coast VA even though I am available to clients world-wide.


I love taking photos, collecting collector plates and researching my family history. The latter has resulted in my doing courses through the University of Tasmania with the ultimate goal of a Diploma in Family History or an Associate Arts Degree. What I have learned, so far, is helping with my research, writing skills and tweaking my grammar and punctuation (which I thought I had covered!)


I found out about VA Networking through Google searches a few years ago, when I initially joined up, after I became redundant and wanted to work from home, now I need to work from home.


Looking forward to meeting, learning and helping on these forums.

Hi Anne and welcome!

How interesting you have been researching your family history because my mom awhile back (who was adopted) did this and finally found her birth mother and family after her adopted parents died. Not a great happy ending as the kids wouldn't let her see her dying mother but she did connect with a couple of brothers who she kept in touch with until one died. The other is still living though :)

Anyhow, enjoy the boards and thrilled you introduced yourself here as I look forward to getting to know you more through your participation here :)

Thank you for the welcome and I look forward to participating on this forum.


I have learnt one thing since posting my intro - as you know my link for my website didn't work, so after looking into what was missing I've learnt another skill - how to successfully make changes to the source page. Now the original link seems to work.


Thanks again :D

Yes, Tawnya there is the good and the bad with researching our history. It is good your mother got answers even if some of the family weren't helpful.
