I have experience working with a variety of customers from state programs and large corporations to non-profits and small local businesses.

Virtual Administrative Specialist
My name is Kirsten Grish. I’ve been an administrative assistant for 15+ years in the software industry for teams supporting the intel and defense sectors. I’ve worn many hats throughout my career at large, from a Public Relations position with an outdoor recreation chain to a Production Coordinator for an historic mapping research company. I am very methodical and task-oriented, striving to understand the bigger picture outside my role to best do my job. I am well versed in the need to be meticulous with tasks subject to audits such as timesheets, travel expenses, invoicing, and minute-taking in metrics meetings. Favorite tasks include editing content, formatting documents, entering/cleaning up data, creating digital forms, S.O.P documentation, and “word-smithing.” During my free time I run a photography business and am a dance instructor/performer, glad to have shared the stage with fellow admin Pamela! I also love all things nature and outdoors. I’ve volunteered at zoos, on a great white shark research boat in South Africa, and as a SCUBA diver at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Currently I am spending lots of time in the forest and training to become a certified Virginia Master Naturalist. I’m excited to be joining the team and look forward to relieving you of the necessary but time-consuming tasks!
