Sunny's Virtual Assistance
cameraman as Johnny did his opening monologues. While this page isn't about my father, I'm so amazed by him and his accomplishments. He was the most incredible dad a daughter could dream of; a loving, humble man. He accomplished so much in his lifetime; the opening guitarist in the theme songs for Bonanza, The Pink Panther, and the hit TV show, M.A.S.H.
I was born and raised in California -- yes, I'm a "Sunny" California girl! I live in the beautiful city of Santa Clarita in southern California. I love and truly enjoy what I do: bringing my clients and their businesses exactly what they need and deserve; a support specialist who's honest, loyal, trustworthy, and who lives with integrity. I apply these qualities to help them in their businesses and with personal needs, virtually.
I decided to become a professional virtual assistant after my twin boys were born. It was becoming increasingly difficult to leave them every day and do the long commute to work. I was successful professionally in the corporate environment and had always received rave reviews for my work. I gained an immense amount of technical experience, skill, and knowledge in how businesses run. But I wasn't happy. Leaving for work everyday and letting "someone else" raise my children wasn't at all what I wanted for them, or me. What I truly wanted was to work from home and raise my twins. Being able to be present for them was vitally important to me.
And then, I found AssistU! The world's premier virtual university for training professional assistants to become professional virtual assistants, working for themselves from home. I enrolled and found, unsurprisingly, that everything I'd learned and every skill I'd developed translated immediately. It was the answer I was looking for; continuing to work flexibly while raising my boys. It was a perfect fit. I graduated and began working with my first client in October of 2000. Quitting my very good corporate job and taking that leap of faith was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
