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:

Your Name:  Doris Susana
Your Website URL (if applicable):  none yet
Years in Business:  0
Description of your Business, including any specialties:  I want to start first as a General VA.  I love accounting and languages.  I might then decide to offer Bookkeeping.  I speak Spanish, I would love to incorporate that somehow in my VA business.

On a more personal note:
What City/Town/State/Country are you from?:  I grew up in Brooklyn, NY but now live in Richmond Hill, Queens.  I'm originally from the Dominican Republic.
Are you married? How long?:  Yes.  19 years.
Any kids and how old?  I have two kids:  Selina and Benjamin (14 and 16 respectively).
Hobbies & Interests:  I love read (particularly the classics).  I love to learn new things. Right now I'm reading something completely new to me:  Affiliate Marketing.

Hi Doris and welcome! I was a Legal Secretary myself for many years before I started as a VA too.

Glad to have you as part of the community. If you have any questions just ask.
