Helping C-Level Executives and Business lEaders take action, find balance, and gain clarity. 

Here is where passion meets experience. 

I strive to provide Virtual Solace for your business so you can spend more time pursuing the things you love. 

I do more than manage tasks. I strategize with clients to see how we can achieve the action, balance, and clarity they desire. My years of experience have lead me to this moment: our meeting. As a business owner, virtual executive assistant, wife, and work at home mom of two beautiful little girls (ages 5 and 2), I get it. I understand the daily struggles you face as a business leader. I understand that time is most likely the one resource you’re struggling to manage the most, and I know why — the demands on our time are endless.

But that’s about to change. There’s no reason for you to feel overwhelmed, stressed, or scattered anymore. You’ve been working hard and together we’re going to get improved results for you and your business. 

With me, you’ll begin to work on your business rather than in your business.

I know that every C-level executive, business leader and small business owner has a unique story and need. 

Maybe you are the President and CEO of your own thriving business! Yet you’ve gone decades without hiring an executive assistant. You have adjusted to handling your inbox, meetings, and travel arrangements on your own, but you know your valuable time and energy could be spent elsewhere. I will handle all the minute details allowing you to gain clarity to focus on high-priority items to advance your business.

Or, maybe you are a business leader who struggles with organization and structure. You know that if you desire to grow and delegate that you need help developing systems and putting them into place so you and your team can work more efficiently. Your wheels are spinning as more and more customer inquiries come in before you have time to do implement anything. I will help you take action by delegating and automating tasks while developing clear, defined business processes. 

Maybe, while you are passionate about your business, your loved ones have told you that it’s time to find a better work/life balance. You would love to be able spend chunks of time without being attached to your phone or laptop so that you can be present with your friends and family. I will help you identify your ideal work/life balance and will work hard to protect your schedule.

I understand. 

Like me, my clients are: 

  • Outgoing and easily excitable.
  • Focused on solutions. 
  • Big thinkers. 
  • High achievers. 
  • Naturally collaborative. 
  • Family oriented. 

Does that sound like you? 

I launched Virtual Solace to serve as your virtual partner. No matter where you are on your journey, or how long you have been running your business, you now have a team member in your corner -- focused on helping you create (and maintain) the lifestyle you desire.
 
Everything I do is about helping leaders like you get results and achieve success. I honestly believe that your success is my success. And, I look forward to being able to encourage you as you expand your business.

  • Elise was an integral member of our team, even though she was a contract resource... She is a very quick learner and has a great attitude about her work. She makes good suggestions for how something could work better and asks questions when she is unsure of a process or procedure. Elise has strong self-motivation and requires little direction or supervision yet she is also approachable and incorporates feedback into her tasks. Any team would be fortunate to have Elise as a member.
