How I Can Help
Hi, I'm Susan Ray, and I provide a way for you to feel great about your physical and digital "stuff". I am an organizational specialist who thrives on finding the perfect resolution for every type of organizational situation.
My 30 year career as an executive assistant has put me in many diverse environments, charged with the task of making it all work out in the end. Rather than forcing an organizational style that may or may not work for you, I use the experience of that diversity and the daily challenges of finding an optimal end result to create the perfect solution for YOU.
A Bit About Me
I have been an administrative assistant and organizer for most of my life. I specialize in helping people find the perfect fit for their lifestyle. I have been honored as a "Woman of Achievement" through our local YWCA, and have provided insight and assistance in the areas of organization and administrative functions to a number of individuals and businesses. I am a lover of the performing arts - with the dance arts as a special joy; an adoring grandmother; and I take delight in seeing the unique qualities in every human being.
Following are some of the services I provide:
ONSITE: Organization of physical environment and digital files/email as well as the administrative services shown below.
VIRTUAL/ONLINE: All of your administrative needs including, but not limited to: appointment and calendar management; email management; initiation and return of telephone calls; and meeting organization and coordination.
One Time Projects
Not certain you could keep a virtual assistant busy on a consistent basis? In that case, I may be the perfect fit for your needs. It is my great joy to work one-on-one with people in whatever capacity they choose on one-time projects. That project or task that seems too overwhelming can be taken care of without a long-term commitment or obligation. Once concluded, you can enjoy the benefits that completion brings, and I can help another person in a similar situation!

Josh Linkner wrote a column in the Detroit Free Press that contains some very insightful and useful advice. Time management can be an obstacle in our quest to be organized, and his suggestions provide a simple approach to finding some additional time.
