Catering to the administrative needs of your small business.

Paula Farthing - OwnerI have been running a professional virtual assistance business since 2005. Back then, when I mentioned the term virtual assisant, people looked at me like I had two heads. I'm so glad things have changed! I also have over fifteen years of experience in executive support. I honed my administrative and technical skills while working my way up through the ranks in a corporate setting, solving real world business issues in a fast-paced environment. These opportunities in a corporate setting allowed me to develop top-notch organizational skills, learn to prioritize tasks, meet deadlines, stick to budgets and appropriately handle confidential information.

Prior to founding ADMIN at your SERVICE, LLC I spent five years as a Regional Administrative Manager and Office Administrator at Adelphia Communications Corporation in Buffalo, NY. In this diverse role, I was responsible for such tasks as the daily operation and management of the administrative office, budget preparation, commission statement generation, human resource administration, extensive document creation and analysis, oversight of the collections process and the supervision of two employees.

This position at Adelphia also supplied me with my first experience of the "virtual workplace" as I provided support and guidance for sixteen advertising sales offices throughout New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maine and Massachusetts. While working on computers in Plymouth, Massachusetts from my Buffalo, NY office, and supporting many employees solely through email and phone, I became much more familiar with how a virtual assistant would function, and after a cross country move, made the natural transition to opening my own business.

Since I am also a business owner I have hands on experience in navigating the challenges that many of my clients face. I understand what it takes to start and run a successful small business.

I have also had the pleasure of working at the not-for-profit Niagara Hospice, Inc. and the chemical engineering firm Chemical Design, Inc. as an Executive Assistant and Administrative Assistant respectively. Both of these companies are located in Lockport, NY.

Please call me today at (714) 389-5390 to discuss how I can be of service to your business. I welcome the opportunity to work with you!
