I strive to effectively utilize my virtual assistant/personal assistant skills for busy professionals by offering a wide variety of services which are designed to help you, the client, reclaim the one thing you can't get back: T I M E.

About Me

My background as an Executive Assistant in NYC within the financial and venture capital arena for over twenty years combined with my experiences providing personal assistant services to a number of independent entrepreneurs from a variety of businesses, ie: executive recruiters; educational consultants; marketing consultants; etc. have showed me there is a need for my skills as a "virtual personal assistant" to help others manage their lives more effectively, reduce their stress levels and save them time. Therefore, I have started my own company dedicated to providing these services, which I enjoy and take pride in performing.

I have the keen ability to anticipate my client's needs and take care of things sometimes before I'm even asked. I display excellent organizational skills, tact, diplomacy and communication skills. I'm very resourceful and detail-oriented, I apply discretion and confidentiality with sensitive matters and have excellent judgement.

I am a member of NAWBO-NYC (National Association of Women Business Owners) and VANA (Virtual Assistant Networking Association). I serve as a Board Director for the Altschul Foundation and volunteer for the Child Abuse Prevention Program at The New York Foundling.

Testimonials

Kathy's writing is superb. Her research is expertly done. Her social media work is fast and on point. She is great to work with because she's smart and insightful about content, as well as what she contributes to it. Kathy is delightful to work with, and she has good judgment about when to keep plowing through a project, and when to ask for more direction. Plus, she understands how to support executives and business owners... by making our projects easier and less time-consuming for me!

-Music Executive

What would I do without Kathy? She has left her mark in many areas of my personal and professional life, but first and foremost, she has a gift with working with diplomacy and discretion. I rely on Kathy's support for almost everything. She has a natural talent for organization, which is invaluable and it always amazes me. I benefit enormously from Kathy's efficiency, her clear communication and her strong sense of integrity. Especially when she's working on something that is near and dear to my heart, I know I can count on her to deliver solid results - and at a speed much faster than I could on my best day! I am grateful for my experience with Kathy and I look forward to an ongoing working partnership together.

-Educational Consultant

I hired Kathy to help organize a very large event I catered this year. The event, which took over a month to plan, involved organizing dozens of staff members from interns to production managers, tents, music talent, staging and children's carnival rides. It was more than I could handle and while I originally hired Kathy to be my assistant, she proved to be so much more. She handled every aspect of my office paperwork and bookkeeping and was in charge of the interview process of every staff member we hired. She has experience in HR, so this background proved to be imperative to hiring excellent workers. She impressed me nearly every day with her reliability, consistency and her remarkable grace under pressure. I recommend her with my highest regard.

Kathy is the business strategist, operations manager and right-hand woman I've always been longing for. She brings the highest integrity and focus to the table, and nothing gets overlooked or forgotten. She is a most dedicated and results oriented professional with an excellent work ethic and is very detailed oriented. Any potential employer may rest assured of excellent service and professionalism.

Kathy Diamant has been nothing but spectacular to work with. She is professional, articulate, creative, understanding, bright, responsible... I could go on and on. I can't say enough positive things about Kathy. She is absolutely awesome.

It is reassuring to have a dependable and reliable person taking care of things for me. Working with Kathy has given me more time to focus on the developmental aspects of my business. Not only has she tackled my "to do list" but my anxiety about upcoming deadlines has decreased because I don't have to worry about things like paying my bills or shopping for holiday presents - Kathy does it all for me.
