About the Eco Helper

Hi!
I ‘m Davey,

the Eco Helper.

I help eco-minded, change-makin’, purpose-driven,
butt-kickin’, superhero business owners (like you!). 

I will keep you organized, connected to your customers, and
visible to your audience, so you can focus on your business
while I take on the mundane tasks eating up your day.

“I share your values and your passion.”

What is a VA?

VA do for you?

Why do you

need a VA?

What is a VA?

A virtual assistant is someone who supports your business by providing various services
—from social media to administrative tasks.

What can a VA do for you?

My services help you grow, increase visibility, and gain recognition within your industry:
I provide Administrative Solutions, Social Media Management, and Graphic Design.

Check out my service packages here.

Why do you need a VA?

Having your very own VA is a cost efficient way to save you time.

You don’t have to go through a hiring process like you would for an employee or wait for them to complete training. A VA is ready to go and already has the knowledge to get the job done.

Plus, you’re only paying for the time or projects they are actually doing!

“I want to help make the world a  better place just as much as you do.”

Every day in every part of my life I try to minimize my impact.

I’ve always been a lover of nature ever since I was a little girl building tree forts in the woods with my brothers. My favorite memories are of our family vacations camping in the woods of northern Michigan. Ever since then, my ideal travel destinations have always included some element of nature. Even in large cities I seek out parks and green spaces.

My wife and I even got married in the Hoh Rainforest in Washington State. We found our dresses in random thrift stores along the route of our rustic camping road trip through the Olympic Peninsula. Was I going to buy nice shoes to traipse through the forest just to elope? Hell no! Hiking boots worked just fine. 

 

Frequenting local refill stores brings me so much joy! I love being able to repurpose jars and containers to fill up.  And saying no to those pesky plastic bags when shopping at local markets always puts a smile on my face. The vendors soon remember me and start to ask for my bags before I’m even done picking out my haul.

“I am conscious of my  impact on the  environment.”

I strive to make my office and life as eco-friendly (and transparent) as possible.

I work virtually paperless. All my notes and most of my sketches are digital, however, I am an artist who loves traditional media. When I do want to put pen/pencil/brush to paper, I search for recycled options.
No trees are being killed while I’m your VA. 

I am continuously learning more about the apps and programs I use, as well as advances in technology in order to reduce carbon emissions from mine and my clients’ systems, processes, and data stored on servers. Did you know that an email with an attachment releases 50 grams of C02 into the atmosphere?

As a remote freelancer, I don’t have a commute so no carbon emissions there. I can work from wherever I currently happen to be. Travel is another big passion of mine so it’s a big part of my life. I am a digital nomad living out of just my backpack and a suitcase. The impact of flying isn’t lost on me. I’m using other means of transportation as well as carbon offsetting options. I’m slowing my travel, walking as much and as far as I physically can, shopping local, and eating local food.
