Lauren GallVaVa Virtual Assistants

I grew up in Dayton, Ohio and attended The Ohio State University where I pursued a bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communications. After college I moved to Los Angeles where I took a sales position that ultimately lead me to the idea for my business. I now reside in Atlanta, Georgia and our clients reside all over the nation.

1. How did you decide to pursue the career that you are working in today?

I was working in sales and the customers I spoke to all had a need for an assistant, but they didn’t necessarily have the capital to pay for someone in-house. That’s when a lightbulb went off in my head, and I knew I could help by providing them a cost effective service while having profitability on my own end.

2. What are the most important decisions that you face daily as a leader in your company?

The most important decisions include maintaining the balance of keeping our clients satisfied and well taken care of, as well as sustaining a healthy work environment for our employees and the company overall. Being strategic and open to new ideas on a daily basis with this continuously evolving business and ever-changing technology is crucial to stay up-to-date for our clients and for our own growth.

3. What do you love most about your job? 

I love that I am able to help my clients gain back hours in their day to work on things they don’t always have enough time for because we take care of the day-to-day mundane tasks.

4. What has been the most beneficial part of being a member at Roam?

I like that I can come to Roam throughout the week whenever I want, and the staff knows everyone by name. It allows me to feel like I am part of a community.

5. What song would you choose to sing at karaoke night?

Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”
