Darlene has a solid podcasting background and provides excellent support. From day one, she became a valued member of our team, doing everything from audio editing, setting up the blog posts, to formatting our email broadcasts, and even scheduling our social media. Always responsive, Darlene is quick to take initiative. She’s reliable and consistently meets our deadlines. Also, she is great at communicating her ideas, and is very professional and courteous.
I highly recommend her as a trusted member of your team. Darlene is amazing!
Andrea Owen, Your Kick-Ass Life
Darlene is everything that I needed in a virtual assistant: organized, prompt, smart, and a pleasure to work with. From day one, I felt secure in knowing that Darlene was on top of things that I couldn’t be. She sees things I needed before I do and has helped me in my business tremendously. She has a robust skill set and knowledge base: AgileCRM, to SquareSpace, MailChimp to Microsoft Word and everything in between.
I’m able to focus on growing my business instead of the day to day details, because I have Darlene on my team.

While I’m an expert at massage, I certainly struggle to keep up with all of the demands of running a business. I spent a year thinking that a newsletter was a good idea and managed to get ONE out during that time. Why? I have limited office skills and these tasks take me forever to accomplish, mainly because I don’t enjoy them. From my first conversation with Darlene, I knew she would be great!
She’s extremely professional, organized, honest, fast and delightful to work with! Her preferred communication is email, which is perfect for me! She makes my ideas better and allows me to send out a professional, regularly scheduled newsletter every month.
Having Darlene on board also helps me stay on task because I’m held accountable. A huge benefit!

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!

Darlene has been an incredible resource for me. Returning to the workforce after eight years was challenging and my new job required some knowledge of social media, of which I had none. Darlene jumped in immediately and helped me get organized with a social media schedule. She handles the daily postings, and created formats for our blog, newsletter and flyers. She even helps interface with our website developer for seamless posting on our site. Darlene is very efficient with her time; she really respects our budget. She is also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things “social.” She is eager to share what she knows with her clients which is something that I both appreciate and rely on.
I really could not do my job without her!
Jeannie Hoffman, Marketing, Cypress Resources, Inc. & 3% Leader Podcast
Darlene has been a consummate professional since day one. Having recently started my own company, I was unsure of the amount of work it was going to take to get me up and running. I was happily surprised by the influx of business, but needed help immediately. I can not even tell you how thrilled I was to have found Darlene.
Her ability to pick up many different types of projects for me, bringing them to fruition from basic instructions, has allowed me to continue to grow and take on more projects than I thought imaginable. Anyone would be very lucky to have Darlene on their team.

Thanks to Darlene Victoria, the process of publishing our Constant Contact e-newsletter, “Freewrite,” goes easily and smoothly. She set up the initial template graphically. She also uploaded the mailing lists, and she updates them. For each issue, I give her the articles and she enhances them with just the right images.
She communicates clearly and always follows through. I also had the pleasure of being interviewed for her informative podcast. In short, I recommend her services highly.
Marian Calabro, President, CorporateHistory.net
I have had the privilege to work with Darlene on various projects over several years. At the core, she is a heart centered entrepreneur. Darlene has a great love for what she does and a natural inclination to help. Her ability to listen to your needs, apply her expertise then follow up is only trumped by her creativity. I recommend Darlene if you want to take your business branding and website to the next level.
I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Tahneesha Smith, Principal, A Virtual Blessing
For a long time I had wanted a complete re-do of my website. I just could not find the time to do it myself, and quite honestly, I was overwhelmed by the thought of transferring my domain and the tech stuff that goes with it all. When I learned that Darlene was offering this service, I was so excited! I have known Darlene for years. I followed her podcasts through the years and even worked with her occasionally. I was so excited because I knew if anyone was going to “get” me and give it her all as well as contribute the creativity and thought that would take my archaic website out of the dark ages and into 2015, it would be Darlene. Darlene got to work right away. She was professional and kept me informed on every aspect of the transition. When something came up that needed my attention, she was swift and efficient to get my input so that she could get my website and my goals completed the way I wanted. I can’t say enough about Darlene’s expertise. She is extremely knowledgeable in her skill set, creative beyond words, determined like the runner that she is, and as professional as it gets.
I am so happy with the outcome and am so happy to recommend Darlene to anyone who needs help with creating or renovating their website. Thank you, Darlene, for everything!
Patty Kabick, Owner, Expert Business Support Services
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!
