Andrea Owen, Your Kick-Ass Life
Darlene is an awesome partner in helping me to build my online presence and brand with her expert knowledge of social media, web design, online apps, and more. I have limited time to do a lot of the things. I need to build my brand and it’s so comforting to know that I can “hand” anything over to Darlene and she gets it done.
Darlene has a great personality and work ethic as well. I’m so grateful that she is my VA and more!
Diane Randall, MA, Diane Randall Consults and Balanced Living for Busy Professionals Podcast
Darlene is a smart, kind-hearted, and energetic person that gets things done. I was very happy with the audio editing Darlene did for me. She was quick, thorough, and classy – a pretty fine mix, if you ask me! Darlene also guided me through a Shopify store setup. She was patient and answered all of my questions and explained even the smallest details.
Hiring Darlene was a great investment in my business, and I’d hire her again in a heartbeat!
