How Can I Help You?
I fell into being a Virtual Assistant totally by accident. After running my own photography business for 7 years, I began to notice that more and more business owners were stressed out and overworked. I began to ask myself why that was the case. Coming from my work as a research assistant, I realized I had a unique skill set and background. I understood being a small business owner and I also had a knack for organization, writing, and helping people. So I went for it! Before I knew it, I was helping business owners all over the country get time back in their lives. They could be with their kids more. They could spend time editing their images, cleaning their studios, and designing a new and better client experience. They could take vacations! I was hooked. All I’ve ever wanted to do is help people and being a VA has given me that opportunity tenfold.
The Fun Stuff…
I’m a mother, a wife, a sister, a cellist, a photographer, a traveler and so much more. My husband, Ryan, and I got married at our favorite winery in June 2015 and welcomed our baby boy, David in 2018. Now that I’m a parent, I understand time management and the space between work and home even more. When I’m not at my desk, you can usually find me in the kitchen making something delicious to feed whoever happens to be in our house and blasting anything from Broadway. I perform in musicals locally as a cellist whenever I can and I’ve bought more puzzles than I’d care to admit. I’m a sucker for a great crossword puzzle, the perfect ocean breeze, and sand between my toes. I share a birthday with Walt Disney and I’m a Type 2 Enneagram (if you hadn’t already guessed!).
From My Blog
I hear it all the time: “I can’t take time off from my business because I’ll lose money and it will suffer.” And while I can’t make any promises to you about finances or everything being perfect, I can tell you that not taking time off to be with your family, friends,...
“I cannot say enough about Kristina! She is so kind, amazingly talented and very professional. Kristina has been blogging for my business for about a year now and has saved me countless hours of work! My blogs always sound like my brand voice and having a blog for all of my sessions has boosted my SEO, brand consistency and the excitement of my clients who can’t wait for their sessions to be on the blog! I have referred every business owner I know who needs an amazing VA to Kristina and will continue to do so. 5 stars is not enough!”
“From the beginning, I’ve communicated my aesthetic, and she has learned my style so well! I so appreciate how well she communicates with me, too! This has allowed for such a wonderful VA relationship! I’ve enjoyed every moment of working with Kristina! She has gone above and beyond with every task, she’s super organized, and I couldn’t imagine not having her in my life! She cares so much about my business like it’s her own, and I’m so grateful! “
“Kristina has been such a wonderful asset to my business! We’ve been working together for 3+ years and she has truly changed my entire workflow. From social media and blogging to newsletters and Pinterest, I love that I don’t have to worry about those areas of my business any more because I trust her with them 100%. She takes on so many tasks for me, which allows me to focus on my clients and serve them well.”
