I am here to take care of the things you don’t want to do, don’t know how to do and/or don’t really like to do! Let me free you from the detailed busy-work that is needed for a company to succeed and allow you to get back to focusing on what makes your company great.
Owner, Virtual Assistant
(Intellectual Property Specialty)
Meet Virtual Assistant, and Founder, of VA on the Spot, Dona Carlisle. Dona has over 40 years of experience in the Administrative Assistant field. It is her passion to help those she supports succeed. Having gone into the Administrative Support field as a career choice she took every advantage she could to learn and grow her skills throughout her career, often being the first to adopt new technology and software so she could train others, becoming known as the “go to” person to get things done.
Dona accepted an early retirement package in late 2019 but, not yet ready to stop working, decided to become a Virtual Assistant so she could continue the work she has such a passion for. As an Administrative Professional she has supported upper management most of her career with the mindset that if she helps those she supports succeed and look good to their superiors, then she has succeeded herself.
Throughout 2020 Dona found, as with many business owners, that the business had to pivot to survive. Starting out with her two daughters working for her, as they were offered new opportunities she pivoted. Dona now dedicates herself to support business professionals by taking on the office tasks they may not know how to do efficiently, don’t like to do, or maybe don’t want to do. Dona can help with things like contract completion and newsletters, document creation and editing, calendar and email management, and more.
Dona has a diverse background that covers several industries including insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, mining, entrepreneurship, author’s assistant, preschool, corporate office, and personal assistant.
Dona is the wife of a wonderful man and the mother of 3 grown children, stepmother of 2 grown children, the grandmother of two, and the step-grandmother of 5. Her heart is in helping others in her community when and wherever she can. She is a believer in Jesus Christ and involved in serving within her church community. She and her husband love to camp, walk, and hike, and Dona has created a raised garden at her home in the suburbs.
If you are a small business owner who finds there isn’t enough time in the day to get done everything that needs to be done, you are doing tasks that have no income value for your company (when done by you), and/or have stopped seeing your business grow, reach out to Dona. Let her take those office tasks that are keeping you from working on your business and stealing valuable time from your day. Let VA on the Spot help you succeed, one task at a time.
