Kisha M. Grimes
Owner & Virtual Executive Assistant
I'm a career executive assistant with 30 years experience. I've worked with and for a wide range of business professionals such as corporate executives, military personnel, athletic coaches, physicians, ministry leaders, and small business owners. Not to mention the innumerable dream-chasers and go-getters who've sought my administrative expertise.
My career began when I enlisted in the Marine Corps and was assigned the military occupational specialty (MOS) of Administration & Personnel Support. I proudly served my country for more than 7 years and honorably discharged as a Sergeant. I knew that my MOS would afford me an easy transition into civilian employment because, frankly, every company needs an Admin! What I did not know was how I would soar in my profession... that my job would blossom into my career, and my career would naturally morph into my own business.
Though I've assisted up to 8 executives simultaneously, my administrative style is more cultivated for one-on-one support. This allows my client and I to dive below the surface of casual rapport so that real relationship is built through understanding of personality nuances, anticipation of needs and wants, and trust is earned for suggestions of better practices for best results.
In addition to general clerical duties (emails, calls, and calendars) a few areas of my career expertise are: executive leadership support, data collection, travel arrangements, resume packages, Passport and Visa applications/renewals, website design and maintenance, research and fact finding, creative writing, business and technical writing, presentations, project management, vendor services, analytical thinking, interviewing and onboarding, and AP/AR support. Keen attention to detail (spelling, proofreading, editing, continuity) is one of my greatest strengths. My business acumen is solid, and I'm driven by high quality and high morale.
I have an Associates degree in Business Administration from American InterContinental University. I am PACE certified (Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence) by the American Society of Administrative Professionals.
