The VA Diva is a small virtual assistant company started in 2007.
My name is Mikki Dowell, owner of The VA Diva. I am located in Winston Salem, where I live with my younger children. I have been working from home for several years and I enjoy the flexibility my schedule gives me to be home for my children so that I can watch them grow. I also own and operate another small business manufacturing and marketing a handmade line of mineral makeup, spa quality soaps, lotions and scrubs, along with hand poured candles and tarts. Through this online business, I have learned first hand the obstacles that small business owners face in day to day operations. This allows me a unique perspective when working with a client to help grow their business.
My Experience & Strengths
I have over 22 years of experience in and out of the traditional office environment. I am highly organized, detail oriented and able to multitask without losing any quality of work. I work well within the constraints of a deadline and love a challenge. In every organization that I have been a part of, I have become a very valued member of the team through my ability to follow through on schedule and ability to adapt and learn new software or tasks. Writing, editing and proofreading are just a few of the areas that I am very strong in, however I offer a full line of services to meet your needs and am proficient in each one.
I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration at Columbia Southern University, as well as pursuing a certification to be an Administrative Medical Assistant at Davidson County Community College. I am also certified in Medical Transcription, Billing and Coding. I have also completed courses in Proofreading and Editing.
I have a complete home office setup, which includes two top of the line computers with firewall and virus protection, high speed internet service, printer, scanner, copier, fax and separate business line with toll free number. I am well versed in many computer software programs including the MS Office Suite of products (Word, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access), Paint Shop Pro, Print Shop, Dreamweaver plus many more.

Some of the industries we have worked with:

"Mikki was a lifesaver. I broke my hand and needed help in getting a client project finished. She took my messy handwritten pages and turned them into a professional looking document in a very fast turn around time. I will absolutely use her again and recommend her to anyone who needs help with word processing. She's fabulous!"
