My Story

Tammy Lorette’s professional background includes 18+ years in executive/administrative assistance and 4 years in virtual services. Tammy founded My VA Connection and Your Virtual Assistant BFF at her dining room table with a laptop and a mind full of creative ideas and enthusiasm.
Tammy went directly from the corporate world with positions that included Executive Assistant to the President at the Banff Centre in Banff, Divisional/Executive Assistant for the VP of Research and Academics at Waypoint Centre in Penetanguishene and EA to the President at a local manufacturing company called HPP in Midland right to working virtually.

Over the past 20 years, Tammy has gained a reputation for all things related to administrative assistance including word processing, meeting management, minute taking, social media, and project management to name a few along with being the brainy resource to rock her business and yours.
Tammy’s clients range from Virtual Assistants to consultants to psychiatrists to entrepreneurs to coaches. She continues to educate herself as the world of working virtually evolves. She maintains her dedication, creativity, humour, personality and discipline which allows her to provide top notch service at any level.

At home, Tammy lives alone in her hometown of Midland, Ontario. As a mother of 4 grown up children, she knows what it means to be organized and to plan an event or 2. In her spare time she likes to visit with her family and friends, she likes to manage her nutrition/fitness group and she loves to cook – especially when someone else is doing the cleaning.
Tammy loves building relationships and loves the freedom she has from working at home. She says that she is very shy but you wouldn’t know it… Tammy is a very positive person with a sense of humour and a little sarcasm too.
When she has some time off you can find her watching her favorite chick flicks on Netflix, sitting in the sunshine on a patio somewhere or enjoying a glass of wine with friends.
But she will likely have her phone in her other hand – She is always connected!
