As a Dr. specializing in Medically Managed Weight loss for adults and children, I needed an administrative assistant to help with a variety of tasks and someone to develop my social media, create content and brand my business. I was grateful to find Danna, who is dedicated and responsive, and keeps my administrative projects and social media moving forward. Her quick responses to my requests keeps everything running smoothly. Over time Danna has learned what my style and philosophy is, and her social media posts are honed to my brand. She develops marketing materials for specific campaigns that are varied, and all have a professional appearance. She has taken a great deal off of my plate so I can focus on caring for patients and developing my business. She is transparent about how she is spending her time, so I know exactly what I am paying for. I would recommend Danna to anyone looking for a high end quality Virtual Assistant / Social Media Manager that can help them manage anything that is overwhelming them.
