Hello and welcome to Bold Sparrow Creative! My name is Courtney, and I am a virtual assistant.
After years of working in the museum sector, I left my career as an Assistant Curator to raise my children. Instead of returning to work in an office, I decided to take advantage of the ability to work from home. Utilizing my background in art history and library science, I wanted to find a way to combine my creative spirit with my organized, analytical side, so here I am.
I have over 12 years of administrative experience in museums, galleries, libraries, and universities, in addition to recent virtual assistant work.
• I have utilized Microsoft Word and Excel to manage the receipt, inventory/cataloging, and permanent storage of incoming collections.
• I have generated and maintained computer documentation on collections and accompanying archival material, and created and maintained procedural manuals for project management methods that I streamlined and perfected.
• I have been the point of contact for vendors and contractors via phone and email, arranging payment for both A/R and A/P accounts, keeping accounts balanced in Excel databases, and creating reconciliation reports in Quickbooks Online.
• I have maintained a photographic collection requiring slide scanning and image editing using Adobe Photoshop.
I have experience using Microsoft Outlook professionally, but I have used Gmail personally for 11 years, and use Google Docs regularly.
More recently, I opened a business on Etsy. For this, I have honed my photography skills and worked in my spare time to use Adobe Creative Suite. I am well-versed in item description copy, and I have been heavily researching keyword analysis, search engine optimization, and social media marketing. I have used Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest extensively. Even though I started the business as a side hobby, it has been a great platform to learn and practice management skills, initiative, assertiveness, discipline, and endurance, as well as creativity.
I have also created two template-based websites using WordPress.org, and created the graphic design and branding materials myself using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
So I created Bold Sparrow Creative, a virtual assistance company. Whether you have a blog you need help with, or a small business that needs data entry completed, I can help. Need help developing a logo or creating branding collateral? You’re in the right place. I can suggest and install helpful WordPress plugins and complete updates. I will help manage your calendar and email, and can set appointments and reservations. The list continues.
