My name is Amanda and I am one DETERMINED MOM! I love learning, laughing, and teaching. I live with my husband, Bert and our three daughters in Lacey, Washington. I was determined to be a stay at home mom as soon I possibly could. With our third daughter on the way, I had to find a way not to go back to my 9-7 managing a credit union branch. I loved the job, but I felt like I never saw my family! I am also a full-time mother, wife, and student! I decided that the best way to do this is to put my varied skill set to work. I have launched The Determined Mom Virtual Assistant to help small business owners lighten their load and focus on growing their business. I have eleven years of business management experience, I have also owned businesses and been an executive assistant in the past. It is my goal to take care of your business as if it were mine. Thank you for reading and don’t be a stranger-comment so I know you are here!
