In 2011, Audrey Isbell took a calculated risk and ended her employment to be closer to home. She knew she could either use her skill set to get another job — or she could start her own business with the experience and talents she had.
The result was a “secretarial service” in the small but quickly growing industry of Virtual Assistance. As the business flourished, Audrey acquired subcontractors and began to build a team to assist with the workload. By the end of the third year of business, the VA practice moved out of the house, and a year later it was re-branded as AVA Virtual Assistance.
In determining the company’s vision, we battled with the trending expectation that businesses need to “specialize,” serving only one type of client or doing only one type of task. We knew that would be limiting what we could offer our clients, who may have a need out of the “specialty” niche. In the end we decided to specialize after all . . . in solutions!
AVA Virtual Assistance has since been a creative solution for a variety of businesses who need a VA for a diverse range of tasks. Besides, Audrey says, “Specializing in Solutions is much more fun!”
Audrey has been a life-saver during a super hectic time of life. I was able to leave several projects in her hands knowing they would be handled efficiently.
Very personable and professional

She will not like for saying this BUT anyone who will stay up late to meet a deadline I set is going above and beyond. Big Atta Boy!!!!!!

AVA makes me look good
I’ve had Audrey and her team work on several projects for my business, Apland’s Auto Body. AVA is creative and efficient. Sometimes you have a problem you don’t know how to solve. AVA is able to come up with solid solutions. They will save you time and money. You can be confident that your task will be done efficiently and above your expectation. AVA makes me look good.
Audrey Isbell and her team are highly skilled and provide an excellent standard of care. Their dedication to a job well done is unparalleled.
Audrey and her team have been our virtual assistants for three years now. She’s been essential for taking mundane tasks off our hands, as well as playing a critical role in rolling out and maintaining our website and LMS (learning management system) at royalwise.com. Even as we grow and add employees, we keep working with Audrey because we love her service so much!
Tremendous Client Care
As a CPA, I hesitated turning over control of my clients’ information to an outside firm. It didn’t take very long to realize this was a decision I should have made much earlier in my business lifecycle. Not only do they show tremendous client care to their primary client – me – but they show as much care to my clients as I do. I could not recommend Audrey and her team any higher!!
A Great Team
Audrey and the team are great. They have knocked down a handful of problems for my company and many many of our clients.
AVA Virtual Assistance has been a life saver for me
Like all business owners, there are lots of things that I prefer not to do myself, both because I don’t enjoy doing them and because I am not good that them. Audrey and AVA Virtual Assistance have been a life saver for me. I’m SO very grateful for Audrey and her team getting those things DONE!
Now I can breathe
Audrey and staff Rock it. All of those tasks that you know should get done but never do… That’s what they do. And do it well. Thanks you guys! Now I can breath.

AVA Virtual Assistance rocks our world! They are highly professional, attentive to every little detail, and their insight is keen to client needs. We are tickled with our TABulated Consulting webpage, and our continued involvement with AVA!
We cannot say enough about them
We can not say enough about Audrey and the AVA team. They are certainly doing a great job handling our tasks and requests. Cant wait to dig into some of our larger goals with them.
Audrey and her team are wonderful, beautiful people. We had the pleasure of working with them and they helped in many ways including increasing our social media presence across multiple platforms.
An Impressive List!
Audrey has an impressive list of secretarial, bookkeeping, computer and marketing skills to her credit. Patient and personable, Audrey is easy to work with. The brave new world of social media is one in which I feel like a stranger in a strange land, but Audrey sat by my side and walked me through aspects of facebook, linkedin, mailchimp,and hootsuite that had me at a standstill. Thank you Audrey!
An Amazing Addition
Audrey and her team have been an amazing addition to my business and has allowed me to carve out the much needed bandwidth required to grow and scale. While we are still a work in progress, it is obvious to me that teaming up with AVA Virtual Assistance was and is one of the best business decisions I have made. I have been made to feel I don’t just have professionals “assisting” me but actually have business partners who are as passionate about my success as I am!! I give my highest recommendation and encourage giving them a call.
