Meet Jackie

Hello there, thanks for stopping by. I’m Jackie de Boer, founder of Accredited Virtual Assistance, a virtual assistant company specializing in administrative support and social media services.

If this is your first visit you may want to know what we’re all about. I’ve put together this short 2-3 minute video; (the closest I could get to an in person meeting :-)) talking about our community blog “Help! I’m an Entrepreneur.”

My goal for this blog is to provide entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and small business with resources and solutions for everyday issues we experience with running a business. Each week I’ll be writing blog posts or creating videos focused on the needs, questions and concerns of entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and small business owners.

To keep up-to-date with my latest posts, why not subscribe to the RSS feed. That way you’ll be the first to be notified when I add something new, and you won’t miss a thing.

A Quick Personal Bio:

Born in Great Britain, I grew up in the County of Worcestershire, perhaps you’re familiar with our steak sauce? I’ve always loved to travel abroad, but one day my vacation bought me to my perfect piece of Paradise, San Diego – California, I just had to make it my home.

However love, life and adventures kept me moving. I married Bruce, my Canadian love, whose job promotions moved us to Japan, followed by Chicago and now beautiful New England; the Greater Boston Area has been our home since 2013.

If you’re looking for details of my experience, qualifications and an introduction to how my virtual assistant and social media services can help your business soar; I’ll switch to my serious, formal, third person voice right about here …

The Formal Biography:

Jackie de Boer established Accredited Virtual Assistance (AVA) in 2005 to address the need for more flexible office support services for solopreneurs, entrepreneurs and small business owners.

In 2009, Jackie became fascinated with social media and how LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking platforms could be used as a marketing tool in business. Following extensive research and on-line courses, Jackie added social media services to the business.

AVA’s social media packages and service plans help busy small to mid-size business owners with everything from evaluations of their current social media platforms to strategy, set-up and training on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google Plus and various Blogs. We also offer social media management and monitoring services.

With 20+ years administrative, executive and marketing support experience, and a strong desire to help others achieve their business goals, the virtual assistant and social media field is a natural fit for Jackie. Born in Great Britain, she gained valuable experience working in Europe, Asia and North America in the medical, legal and corporate fields, for small business owners, to Fortune 500 corporations.
