Dona Carlisle

Owner, Virtual Assistant
(Intellectual Property Specialty)

After 42 years in the professional workforce, I founded VA on the Spot LLC to help businesses achieve the success they deserve.

I have diverse knowledge in medical, insurance, plumbing, mining, entrepreneurship, author’s assistant, and manufacturing.

I am a firm believer in always learning and in my jobs I quickly earned the reputation as the “go to” person to get things done. I’m not afraid to pull up my sleeves and work to resolve any challenge that comes my way.

I try to use my talents and skills to support my church however possible. I currently serve in leadership with my husband and in the past have held a variety of roles. I have also volunteered in local elections, with the National Association of Professional Women, the International Association of Administrative Professionals, and Habitat for Humanity.

I am the wife of a wonderful man and the mother of 3 grown children, stepmother of 2 grown children, the grandmother of two, and step-grandmother of 5. I lived in Hamilton County for over 40 years where I was an involved member of the Westfield and Noblesville communities. Since moving to Marion County I am just beginning to discover ways to help the community in which I now live. I am a supporter of 4-H, Prevail, Relay for Life, March of Dimes, American Family Association, KLOVE, Versiti (formerly Indiana Blood Center), caringbridge.com, and local food pantries.

I look forward to serving you and your business.

Ruby Burris

Owner/Advisor

I began developing my “administrative” skills at a young age. Having grown up in the age of computers, I only have a few memories where we didn’t have a computer. This proved to be helpful as we moved away from word processors and into things being more computerized.

My grandfather owned his own business, so as young as 11 years old I was helping him type documents and enter data into different systems. From there, my skills continued to expand where I would help in different companies in which my mother was employed doing everything from filing to mailings and reports.

I graduated from Hannibal-LaGrange University with a Bachelor’s in Human Services and continued to achieve my Master’s in Marriage & Family Therapy from Liberty University. While in school, I depended on my administrative experience to be able to work.

My husband and I have 2 amazing children and as a family, we are very involved in both our church and the local theater group. I also volunteer with Kairos Prison Ministry, training and equipping volunteers and helping conduct retreat weekends. Our children are also involved in 4-H and play soccer.

I love helping people. I feel energized and empowered when someone else succeeds. I am excited to walk alongside your company and help you achieve the success of your dreams.

Bethany Berghofer - Owner, Virtual Assistant

Bethany Berghofer

Owner, Virtual Assistant (Creative/Graphic Design Specialty)

Art is my first language, but I have just enough left-brain to make me also love typing, data entry, organizing files, and creating powerpoints, spreadsheets, publications, and other documents.

I started doing administrative work in college and have had numerous different positions doing a variety of different administrative tasks from data entry, filing, spreadsheets, etc. I also have created my own website to show my art and children’s books.

As nerdy as this sounds, I also enjoy doing a lot of these things in my free time – creating publications, typing, spreadsheets, graphic design, powerpoints, and videos.

I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a General Studies degree with a concentration in Art. I had enough art credits to be an art major, but the classes I took didn’t fit into a prefabricated mold. I have found this degree to be very beneficial because I was able to have a more rounded experience in classes which has prepared me for my art teaching experiences I have had since graduating.

I live with my incredible husband and our two fur babies. I volunteer with Kairos Prison Ministry and also do a worship painting once a month at the Indiana Women’s Prison.

Not only do I enjoy creating “busy work,” but I also enjoy helping people. I’m looking forward to working with your company and creating whatever your company needs to shine.

Melissa Vasquez Virtual Bookkeeper VA on the Spot

Melissa Vazquez

Virtual Assistant (Bookkeeping, Office Administration)

I am a Quickbooks Certified Pro Advisor and have developed a passion for helping small businesses. My role in your business allows you to focus on the tasks that you love and that make you money! Meanwhile, I keep the financial side of things organized and up-to-date. This gives you the ability to see, at all times, the financial health of your business so you can make informed decisions.  

My career in bookkeeping started as a need to find a job where I could work from home. I was working as a licensed dental hygienist and my youngest son was experiencing some mild, but chronic health issues. It became increasingly difficult to balance work and family. I had no idea bookkeeping would turn into something so much more than just a convenient job!
I am married to my wonderful husband of fifteen years. We have three amazing, beautiful, funny (they get that from their momma) kiddos. We are movie lovers and enjoy planning family movie and game nights. We recently moved to the Warsaw/Fort Wayne area for my husband’s job and we are enjoying our new town. We are involved in our church and various non-profits. My love for dental hygiene lives on through volunteer work in local community clinics for low-income families.
Nothing makes me happier in my work than when I see your business succeed. It would be my honor to work with you!

Christy Whipple Social Media Expert VA on the Spot

Christy Whipple

Virtual Assistant (Social Media, Marketing, Search Engine Optimization)

I feel like most of my adult life, from age 19 onward, has been dedicated to helping businesses achieve their marketing and social media goals. Early on, as a journalism major, I took a few marketing classes in order to assist my employer with marketing projects as I worked through college. I immediately fell in love and refocused my career path. I loved the feeling of helping a business find its marketing focus and truly thrive. I have been in the field of marketing for over 16 years, and have worked in social media since Facebook first became the next big thing! I also have experience in web design, public relations, and graphic design.

Born and raised in Indiana, and an Indiana University alum, I am a true Hoosier girl. I love the Indiana sunsets, the county fairs, and listening to crickets on a warm summer night. I love to travel; not only taking in God’s breathtaking beauty but also participating in ministry projects. In addition to returning to our favorite destinations, my husband and I have been to 49 countries (and counting), and I always feel blessed to come home to my small Indiana town.

My husband Jordan and I revel in our status as the “fun” aunt and uncle and enjoy our special time with our nieces and nephews. We are also youth leaders in our church, so our “aunt” and “uncle” status extends to many more! In addition to traveling, we enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, camping, and biking. In my spare time, I enjoy writing, binge-watching docudramas, and sharing photos and blog posts about our travels.
