The owner, Norma Murray, has been an assistant for over 25 years. Throughout the years she has learned and developed skills that have provided her the ability to start a virtual assistant service. Norma prides herself on the ability to keep calm in the most stressful situations. Over the years Norma has covered a wide variety of tasks, from bookkeeping to travel arrangements, she really has done it all.
Starting out in retail Norma developed the skills to interact on a personal level with customers. After that she moved into banking, which helped develop her financial skills. While working at the bank, the President of the bank realized her dedication, hard work, and abilities and requested that she apply for an opening as the Assistant to the Vice President. While working at that position, Norma took on many additional tasks. Those tasks included covering switchboard, vault relief, as well as setting up for and helping with Loan Committee meetings. While filling in and learning the different positions in the bank, with computers becoming a big part of the bank, Norma took it upon herself to learn how to correct issues that came up with IT. Soon, she was receiving calls to fix some issues while the IT people were unavailable.
After learning about computers and how to be an attentive assistant, Norma decided to start her own virtual assistant service. In 2006 virtual assistants were few and far between, but knowing that her skill set was vast and her dedication was strong, Norma started Able Assistants. The skills would provide the ability, the internet gives Able Assistants the ability to provide services to any company, anywhere in the world.
After 25 years as an assistant and 10 years as owner of Able Assistants, Norma still loves what she does. As a virtual assistant she gets to meet great people from all over the country and all over the world.
