With a passion for being a virtual assistant, Raquel Carter has worked hard to establish herself in the VA industry providing clients with professional and timely results. Over the past eight years, she focused her work in the administrative industry holding different roles as a receptionist, office assistant, leasing assistant, administrative assistant, and accounts receivable manager. There, she learned professional business etiquette and business correspondence.
Each role provided her the opportunity to tailor her skills, like email/calendar management and scheduling/appointment setting, to meet clients’ needs. She also began specializing in providing account management, project management, customer service, and light bookkeeping to small business owners and entrepreneurs who are looking to gain more freedom in their business. She understands that communication and organization are key ingredients in running a successful business, as well as loyalty and dedication.
Raquel’s love for her work and drive for success inspired her to go back to college. She will receive her Associate’s degree in Business Management at Cleveland State Community College where she graduates in May 2021. She plans to continue her education after graduating to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. She has been able to apply what she has learned into her virtual assistant career like time management skills, business ethics, and marketing. Her can-do attitude and drive for success motivate her to surpass client expectations and build business relationships for years to come.
When she is not wowing clients with her work, you will find Raquel creating DIY projects or repurposing items she found at Goodwill or yard sales. She also enjoys spending time with her fiancé and stepson going hunting, fishing, or 4-wheeling on her family farm in East Tennessee and spoiling her pit bull rescue, Ruger, who is always by her side to keep her company when she is hard at work for her clients.
