Antonette Artiz, Certified Professional Virtual Assistant
Ready to take on your administrative needs and help you grow your dream business.
I am a professional problem-solver, idea generator, systems builder, and collaborator with my clients, who are people whose work does good in the world. To these individuals, I bring every skill and talent I have in my arsenal to partner with them to handle the administrative and operational functions of their businesses — this is the work I love to do! The icing on the cake is that when I do what I love to do — admin and ops, my clients get to do the work that they love to do — GOOD!
I bring over 30 years of executive-level administrative support to the table, along with over 17 years of virtual assistance collaborative work. I have worked in various industries, and I’m a very quick study. I love to learn new things, new industries, and meet new people, which is why I love being a Virtual Assistant.
Fun fact about me, I love Mickey Mouse. He’s fun, loyal, and hard working. He was my inspiration when creating my site!

Complete the form at the bottom. Make sure you tell me how I can find you online. Then I’ll set up a time to chat.
Step 2: First of three calls
Our first call is a 15-minute call where we will NOT talk about work. This is an introductory call where we will chat about hobbies, interests, family, movies, etc. Anything other than work to see if we have that ease that people need to move forward in conversation, and the building block for a good relationship.
Step 3: Nuts and Bolts interview
In this 90 minute interview, we’ll both come prepared to share about our businesses, and ask questions. This call will help us get the facts about one another; as well as the nuts and bolts of our businesses.

I am delighted to provide a glowing testimonial for Antonette, who has been an absolute joy to work with. She consistently exhibited qualities that set her apart as an exceptional professional.
Antonette’s responsiveness is great. She always made herself available to address any concerns or queries promptly. Antonette was not just someone who completed tasks, but a true partner in our collaboration. She actively asked questions to ensure she fully understood the project and my expectations, making me feel heard and valued.
Antonette’s check-ins and discussions about her ongoing work were not only reassuring but also showcased her commitment to transparency and collaboration. This made our work together feel like a true partnership, rather than a one-sided endeavor.
The quality of Antonette’s work was exceptional. She consistently delivered quality results, leaving me thoroughly impressed with her skills and knowledge. I was able to trust that any task she undertook would be completed to the highest stadard.
During my lengthy vacation absence, Antonette’s support facilitated a seamless transition for my clients. She stepped in after a quick, but comprehensive training period, ensuring that my work continued without a hitch. This level of reliability and dependability is truly priceless.
Beyond her professional competence, Antonette’s thoughtful and kind demeanor shone through in all our interactions. Her genuine care for me and my business and her willingness to go the extra mile made working with her a true pleasure.
In summary, Antonette is an invaluable asset. She is a professional who excels in every aspect of her work, from responsiveness and problem-solving to the quality of her output. Her thoughtfulness and kindness make her a joy to collaborate with. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her. Antonette is simply exceptional.
As a solopreneur, each day brings a new mix of demands across the spheres of my life. Antonette is a partner to me, and to my business. As a fellow professional she I has the experience and expertise to meet my needs no matter the size or complexity. She is reliable and adept at any task or request thrown her way, ready to tap her network of resources whenever needed. As an open-hearted and non-judgmental human, she is able to help me ensure my values and goals are woven into all of the work done on behalf of my organization – I trust her to represent me. I had the benefit of meeting Antonette and working with her many years ago when she was supporting the local chapter of a professional society. Her ability to work smoothly with every member made as much of an impression as her beautiful execution of the supporting activities we required. Over the years, she has proven to be a true partner and collaborator – her professional skills fill a deep need and provide me the opportunity to focus on what I do best.
Antonette supported me with a two big challenges. The first was updating a horribly out-of-date Amazon author’s account, and the second was cataloging a YouTube channel. These required research and finesse in figuring out the very-best ways for the updating and cataloging to be done, and Antonette partnered with me, handling the bulk of what needed to happen, to get them done beautifully!
AA is a Rock Star!
Antonette is collaborative, resourceful, and proactive. She came into my business hitting the ground running. I am the CEO of a new fintech company, and with the assistance of Antonette, we opened a new headquarters in Miami, FL. She assisted remotely with set up of all the office essentials such as internet, telephones, and supplied the kitchen area. She created systems to help me with not just office task, but also personal things as well.
Antonette’s onboarding process is set up to quickly establish trust, and we were able to do that fairly quickly into our working relationship. This is important aspect of the Executive Assistant to the CEO, and her level of professionalism left no doubt in my mind that she would guard my privacy and that of the company.
I have enjoyed working with Antonette and I highly recommend her.
As soon as I was introduced to Antonette, I felt an immediate sense of relief. I instinctively knew that I found someone that understood my overwhelm, and right away she jumped in and started organizing things to help make my work/life more balanced. The smallest thing she did that made a huge difference was scheduling lunch on my calendar every day.
Antonette has an open-honest personality that encourages you to feel comfortable reciprocating. She welcomes honest feedback that is meant to improve the relationship. She’s proactive and persistent which are qualities I greatly appreciate as we try to get appointments on my busy calendar.
It has been a pleasure to have had the ease of trust, which I believe her interview process creates, because it made the work that we needed to accomplish go so smoothly. Antonette has given her all to every task no matter the size. I truly appreciate her, and I highly recommend her.
Antonette is fast, detailed and extremely professional. She works diligently to understand the goal, and delivers top notch products on time.
Antonette has been a part of a Another Choice Another Chance DC since day one. Her skills and unique personality have served as a key to open many doors for our organization. Antonette is one of a kind when giving a project or task she completes them on time with efficient delivery. She is the ONE and not the TWO.
Antonette Artiz is an excellent virtual assistant. Her ability to keep me organized and focused is exemplary. She is prompt, professional, discrete, and extremely efficient. I am happy to refer her to colleagues and clients who I feel can benefit from her unique services.
Antonette has provided virtual assistance to the Library Associate Training Institute (of Maryland and Delaware) for three years. During that time, she has orchestrated, managed and attended to all the myriad details that accompany implementing and administering a mandatory six-months’ training program, serving more than 250 people. She has always been willing, capable and conscientious about offering support and “doing” those behind -the-scenes tasks and actions that contribute to the program’s success. In addition, she has been willing to learn – an attribute that is high on our list for learning is the essence of our purpose. Antonette’s assistance has also served to introduce trainees, their supervisors and the library community to the concept of the virtual assistant. She is a great ambassador for AssistU and virtual assistance-ship.
From the day I first met Antonette on the phone, she “wowed” me with her professionalism, organization, and communication skills. Since then, I have become only more impressed with –and grateful for — all that she has done to make my organization and me more productive. She is rich with ideas, resources, and efficiency, not to mention her lovely spirit. I could never do my job as president of a board –nor would I want to!– without her by my side.
As a non-profit association with the aim of pursuing employee benefits education among benefits professionals in the Washington, DC metro region, the Capital Chapter is governed by a Board of Directors who volunteer their services for the educational activities sponsored by the chapter. Since almost every Director is employed full-time in their respective jobs, the chapter has needed someone like a virtual assistant to perform the many administrative tasks that go into organizing an educational event. Fortunately, the chapter has had just such an individual in Antonette Artiz since the last six years.
Antonette has proven herself to be invaluable to the chapter as she goes about performing her tasks conscientiously, efficiently and with minimal supervision. Over the years, the chapter has relied on her expertise in not only the administrative duties she very ably performs but also in recommending novel ways in which the chapter can be more effective in growing its membership and in imparting benefits education.
Antonette’s exemplary services as a VA had meant that the chapter will continue to contract with a VA, especially one who is trained by AssistU.
Our all-volunteer board could not function without Antonette. We have come to rely very heavily on her expertise and work ethic. She maintains our website, handles the registrations for our seminars and pulls together the seminar materials, among other responsibilities. Before hiring Antonette a number of years ago, the board members were tasked with all these duties, and while they got done, they were not done nearly as well or thoroughly. Antonette is a delight to work with and our Chapter would be hard pressed to replace her. Knowing she is there for us allows us to improve both the quantity and quality of our educational offerings and we highly recommend her.
