Hi everyone,


My name is Kayla and I am a Virtual Assistant working out of Southwestern Ontario. I have been in the Office Administration / Administrative Assistant role for approximately 7 years. Everything from answering phone calls to finance work and everything in between.  I am very excited to connect with and bounce ideas, advice, and opinions off of the other members. I am also very excited to learn from all the other members. I would have to say that I get my inspiration from my family - my husband and my brother. The 3 of us are extremely close and those 2 always inspire me to do better, think things through better, just all around be a better human. 


I look forward to chatting with other members in the near future and wish you all the very best in all your future endeavours.

Hi all!


I just joined Upwork after being recommended to join by a new connection to both help build up my portfolio and do something productive with my time while I look for full time positions!


I am currently located in New Jersey and I have 6 years of customer service experience, however I am hoping to follow my BA in Film and Media studies and build up my marketing, social media management, and public relations skills. My most recent full time role was 100% remote so I am very comfortable with remote work of any kind- I am open to trying new things. I am excited for new opportunities and hopefully new connections as well! 


The one who inspires me the most is my cat, Billy. He is playful, relaxed, and never worrying about what comes next- everything I aspire to be in this world. 🙂

I have participated in numerous research projects, published articles in esteemed medical journals, and consistently demonstrated a commitment to pushing the boundaries of medical knowledge.

- **Patient Care**: My clinical experience includes providing exceptional patient care, where I have demonstrated empathy, compassion, and a commitment to improving patient outcomes. This hands-on experience has given me a profound understanding of the practical aspects of medicine.

- **Diverse Expertise**: With a broad range of expertise in Pharmacology, Epidemiology, Biology, Microbiology, Pathology, Business Administration, Medical Law and Ethics, and Entrepreneurship, I possess a unique skill set that allows me to approach medical challenges from multiple angles and contribute to innovative solutions.

I am excited about the potential synergies that can arise from our collaboration and the positive impact we can create in the field of medicine. If you believe that my expertise aligns with your organization's goals or if you see opportunities for us to work together, I would welcome the opportunity to connect and explore these possibilities further.

Please feel free to reach out to me at [Your Contact Information], and I would be delighted to schedule a meeting at your convenience to discuss how we can move forward together.

Hi Andrea, Hi everyone, 

I'm Flavia, a French communication assistant. I work from France (Chartres) and my speciality is Storytelling. I love to tell stories ! I'm here actually because I'm new and I wish to know more how the platform works (connects, the applications system...). I never applied for international platform before, so I'm experimenting now 🙂 

Who inspires me ? So, it's funny that question because, right now I'm reading a book in portuguese from a brazilian guy named Rick Chester. He was a street water seller, and one day, Rick posted a youtube video where he explain how he makes money selling bottles of water on the beach of Copacabana. This video became viral and in only 4 months, Rick became a Worldwilde recognized speaker and entrepreneur reference. He also made a conference in Harvard.

I really hope to change that kind ideology  by joining this forum, so i can work hard with other members and build the confidence with the communities out of my country for a more trusted ground for busines opportunities and job openings espeially for the people in my field of work. 


i will love to improve more on my software development skills especilaly on javascript and also to contribute my best in ideas and development strategies where ever need may be with other members.
