Yes, my name is Caitlyn Allen! I am a northern-Michigan country girl turned Arizonan desert rat. Almost two years ago I moved from northern Michigan to southern Arizona to start my life after college. I joined AmeriCorps VISTA, it’s like domestic PeaceCorps, by taking a job on the spot. I packed up my car and moved across the country in my Chevy tracker. [Can you tell I am a bit adventurous?]]

Anyway, long story short, I will be ending my second VISTA term this August and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. That’s where Dannie Fountain introduced me into the world of virtual assisting. At first I was hesitant, I would say, “This isn’t in my ‘plan'” or “What if I don’t know how to do something a client asks?”

But after taking on a few clients I have learned that I LOVE helping others. I love being there to help in any way necessary, like those multi-purpose tools you can use for just about everything!

Fun fact about me: when I am not supporting entrepreneurs, I’m usually chasing cacti and scorpions out here in the Sonoran desert.
