Sarah Newton“I have been working with Katrina now for over a year and her professionalism never fails to impress me. I say to others that Katrina is my stress relief; in moments when I am losing my mind, Katrina just steps up to the plate, organizes me and gets stuff done. Her attention to detail amazes me and having Katrina by my side has allowed me to focus on new projects, while I can rest assured that everything is working the way it should. Katrina is just what every entrepreneur needs; a strong, safe base that will keep you grounded. She takes my ideas and makes them tangible and real, without much input from me, which is just what I need. Katrina makes sure I am where I should be, when I should be, and takes care of my clients with compassion and ease.”

Gladys Anderson“Hiring Katrina Chesney at Portable Hands as my virtual assistant was the best decision I have made for my business! I was impressed with Katrina’s organizational skill and attention to detail the first time we spoke.”

“When I first contacted Katrina, I was snowed under in a maze of autoresponders, article submissions, setting up my teleconferences, and more…  Katrina immediately helped me to see how to make necessary changes, implement systems and resources freeing me to do more writing, speaking and growing my business.  I highly recommend Katrina for all you virtual assistant needs! ”

Lynn Lawson“Katrina at Portable Hands has been fantastic for my business!”

“When I first began working with her, I was launching a new website and I needed lots of help getting traffic to my site. With her help, I never had to worry about just having 1 or 2 visitors per day. She helped me to distribute my articles to get free traffic to my site, but she did so much more for me, including giving me guidance when needed.”

“If you’re considering a virtual assistant, you can’t find a VA who knows more about getting web traffic and with better integrity than Katrina.”

SanciaMatthyssen“We partnered with Portable Hands in 2010 to help with marketing and operational support.  Katrina was up to speed in no time, thorough, on-time and needed little guidance even during the initial stages of our working relationship. She also was quick to adjust and manage to our preferred applications. We found Katrina to be extremely reliable, responsible and a fantastic communicator.  We’re looking forward to working with her again in the very near future.”

I would be glad to speak with anyone regarding the value of their services.”
