About Erica

Erica began her professional career in the field of cosmetology where she learned the importance of communicating with clients. Through thorough consultation and communication, she was able to achieve great looks and satisfied returning customers. After two great years, Erica was needed at home with her family and resigned from the salon. She found work at home in the form of transcription and captioning, honing her typing speed, proofreading, and editing skills, and most importantly gaining the patience to get the job done as accurately and as polished as possible.

While furthering her search for a stay-at-home career, Erica stumbled into the world of virtual assistance. In this role, she served clients by helping them do the things they were too busy to do: finding doctors who accept their insurance policy, requesting medication refills, researching products and making educated recommendations, booking reservations, and so much more.

Erica is filled with devotion and dedication and wants nothing more than to see you succeed. Clients would describe Erica as being dutiful, thorough, organized, passionate, and always willing to go above and beyond.

In her free time, Erica is a freelance illustrator with a self-published webcomic series. She has also worked with streamers on Twitch to develop stream graphics, alerts, and chat emotes. She lives in rural Kentucky with her son and husband.

My experience with TRUSTY OAK was wonderful…getting my website more organized and cohesive. Having someone else take a deeper look at my website was really helpful and inspiring — we literally gave it a whole new look and feel. This freed up my time to focus on other things that I don’t usually have time for. Hannah was always available when I needed her and had a lot of great ideas and brought a fresh new perspective to my marketing. I felt like I was in really good hands and can highly recommend TRUSTY OAK.

TRUSTY OAK rocks! I couldn’t be more pleased about the quality of work and their personal touch. With Amber as CEO, I can count on her to understand our needs, to be a great communicator, and a wonderful resource for us. I am continually impressed with how professional and capable TRUSTY OAK’s virtual assistants are. I highly recommend TRUSTY OAK to provide outstanding administrative assistance to organizations like ours.

Working with TRUSTY OAK has been an absolute pleasure. After several failed attempts with other VA firms, I have finally found a responsive, trustworthy, dependable assistant…adding much more value than the bare bones inbox and calendar management I was looking for. If you’re looking for a fractional assistant you can trust from day one, I highly recommend you work with TRUSTY OAK.

My VA has done more for me in 20 hours of work than I’ve done in probably a year of just making things up on my own. That’s not a sales pitch, infomercial, or me being paid to say what I’m saying. It’s true. I’ve gotten a business card designed, a logo designed, website updated, streamlined for SEO, content written, colors and fonts changed, things I would have never thought about if I was doing this on my own.

Adulting is hard. Entrepreneuring is harder. I don’t know where I would be on either if Trusty Oak hadn’t come into my life when they did. Partnering with them has allowed me to scale my business, organize my life, and accomplish goals that would have been out of my reach without their support. Their team is diverse in skillset and background—over the years I have been able to lean on them for everything from scheduling and travel booking to bookkeeping and invoicing to process engineering and implementation. They are proactive, trustworthy, and receive an enthusiastic recommendation from me!

As an entrepreneur with several projects going in different directions, it’s hard to prevent some things from falling through the cracks. I’ve asked for a diverse list of tasks and they have done them all in stride, quickly, and way too politely. You can count on TRUSTY OAK to get things done fast and correctly, freeing you up to focus on building your business.

It took a while to open to the idea of a VA – as a new business owner, I thought I could do everything. Well, I was wrong! Letting go of the things I don’t know how to do, or don’t do well at all and handing them to TRUSTY OAK helped me immensely. They take care of my website and social media and much more, and leave me time as the business owner to do the stuff I’m good at.
