I am Roxanne Latour,
I have completed my Office Administration Diploma and have over 25 years of experience such as; Federal, Provincial and Municipal Government administrative assistant; I have also worked in multiple School Divisions as a Certified Educational Assistant.
I have also been working hard to better understand Pinterest and becoming a PVA to manage clients Pinterest accounts; driving traffic to clients websites; understanding the analytics; creating pins; scheduling pins and much more!
I enjoy spending time with my husband Ed; having our 2 grown children home for visits; and playing with our dog Maggie and our grandpup Dixie. My hobbies are reading, learning to crochet (work in progress); cooking; crafts and gardening.
Some interesting facts about me is that even though I am very social when out and about, I can very much be an introvert if the opportunity presents itself. Another fact about myself is that has come to my attention is that I can operate in all kinds of niches (this could explain why I struggle with narrowing them down).
My name is Mikayla Latour,
I have completed my Bachelors degree in Management with a Major in Human Resources and Labour Relations. I have also completed my Business Management Certificate (2015) along with a Business Administration Diploma (2016).
I wanted to start this business with my mom so that we not only had the opportunity to work remotely and together, but to also assist other businesses grow by providing a service that handles their timely tasks so they can focus on other important aspects of their business. I have seen the struggles of starting your own business and owners/workers struggling with workloads that could be done remotely by a VA. Knowing that I can assist others with their workload so that they can work on the growth of their business is something that I want to thrive at.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being around my dogs and reading novels.
We have skillful, knowledgeable and helpful subcontractors who bring their own expertise to maximize the services and quality that our clients are looking for. Our team is proficient in doing different tasks from office/administrative management; human resource management; bookkeeping services; graphic design and much more.
If a client requests a service we do not offer, no worries! We can find the right Virtual Assistant that suits the job and the client!
