My name is Jezza and I started working as a Virtual Assistant since 2012. I have achieved Top-Rated status on Upwork working as an Independent Contractor with lots of skillsets to offer to my clients and with the right attitude and high regards to professionalism. I am happy to help small businesses and grow with them.
I was born and raised in the Philippines.
I graduated from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines in Sta. Mesa, Manila and earned my BSc. in Nutrition and Dietetics and later got my licensed as Registered Nutritionist-Dietician in August 2007.
In the Philippines, I started working as a Customer Service Representative (CSR) handling inbound/outbound calls, responding to emails and live chat for Nestle Philippines and an HMO, Maxicare Corporation. As a dietician, I have previous work experiences in the hospital for a year as a Therapeutic Dietician in Makati Medical Center, Dietary Researcher in Food and Nutrition Research Institute and Nutrition Counselor in Nestle Philippines.
I have a strong background in customer service with over 7 years of experience working in a Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) as an Assistant Restaurant Manager in Jollibee Foods Corporation.
I moved to Canada with my husband in 2014 as a Temporary Foreign Worker. Both of us were working as a Food Service Supervisor in McDonalds Restaurants of Canada, Ltd. and fortunately in 2016, we got our permanent residency.
Right now, I am working as a Full-time Executive Assistant in an appraisal company handling reception, taking orders/booking appointments, research, data entry, business correspondence and bookkeeping. I am also working as a Part-time Virtual Assistant as an Independent Contractor on Upwork (an online working platform for freelancers).

I also worked as Online Dietician Coach in a fitness app (BeYou) and guest blogs relative to wellness, nutrition, and diet. I also made a customized meal and diet plans for clients primarily on clients who want to lose weight, tone up and build muscles.
I absolutely wear different hats that make me an all-around rockstar VA!
I consider myself as a growth-oriented individual, responsible and very determined and organized towards work and passionate for doing research, reading, writing, and patronizes social media for personal and business use.
Personally, I am positive and very organized at work and I do respect the time and money spent by my clients so I always put my best effort into every task.
