Elayne Whitfield began her Virtual Assistant practice, Executive Assistance, in September 2000 and incorporated Executive Assistance Business Solutions Inc. in May 2005. She graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1987 and worked for several years in various support and management positions before relocating to Barrie, Ontario to raise her three sons (5, 9, and 15) and start her business.
A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an entrepreneur specializing in business support services, virtually, allowing other entrepreneurs to attend to the revenue producing activities necessary to their own business. Virtual assistance is simply administrative support offered online rather than face-to-face. Executive Assistance also provides other support services such as Website design and maintenance, Search Engine Optimization, graphic design, desktop publishing, and bookkeeping.
Elayne and I began working together in 2000. She initially handled my Website maintenance but not takes care of the Website, my blog, my SEO (Search Engine Optimization), mailings, and other projects as they come up.
Elayne and her family are avid boaters and spend every possible minute on their Silverton 402 in the Georgian Bay area. Elayne and her husband, Tim, curl, golf and and spend most of their spare time running around after their three boys.
