About Marie Chandler
I established Office Support Online in February 2008 with a dream of being my own boss and working with a variety of industries and people such as consultants, small business and start-up operators. My career as a Personal Assistant / secretary in the corporate world spanned over 20 years and ranged from office junior to senior secretarial and coordinator positions. Now I am known as a Virtual Assistant, or VA, and provide high level typing, formatting, design/layout, web admin and secretarial services from my home office as an outsource service provider. Partnering with me saves you overhead costs of staff in your office and benefits the environment with less commuting. I enjoy being a solo business operator and using up-to-date technology to provide support to my clients. I am motivated, enthusiastic, proactive, creative and professional.
I understand a business runs smoother with good support services and enjoy helping to provide solutions to admin problems. You should be in the marketplace winning new clients, rather than sitting at a desk all night wondering how to design a presentation or format a document. You worry about how it sounds and I'll worry about how it looks.
As a soloist working from home I believe it is very important to keep up to date with technology and ensure my skills don't become outdated. Thus, my continuous self-education, researching, and learning new programs will assist in solving challenges associated with helping you become more productive and profitable. I hold a Diploma of Business Administration and have advanced knowledge of the Microsoft suite of products. I use an Apple Mac computer running Microsoft Office for Mac 2011, (and PC version-XP OS) Office 2010 suite, iWorks, and the Adobe CS6 Design & Web Premium Suite. Based in Everton Park in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, as a Virtual Assistant & thanks to technology, it's like we are in the same building. See my Services page for details of how I can assist you.
I believe good administration support with complete confidentiality is a necessity in any successful business and I take pride in the work I produce. Relax in the knowledge you are receiving quality service which will enhance your business, no matter how small or large. I also have a large network of highly trained VAs in many specialist fields that provide additional support and complement my skill set.
