Teri Wesley: Your Virtual Support Specialist
I have more than 30 years of experience supporting all levels of business owners, from sole proprietors to top-level executives. I have acquired a broad range of expertise in various sectors: broadcasting, military, legal, medical, advertising, and financial news.
Graduating with honors, I received certification from the Executive Secretary program at Scarlet Oaks Career Development Campus (Cincinnati, OH). I worked in administrative positions in creative environments that included marketing, a recording studio, broadcasting, and video production.
Leaving those fascinating jobs and my family, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where I served as a YN2 (Yeoman Second Class Petty Officer) in supportive roles for the base commander and the Judge Advocate General. I maintained 4.0 performance evaluations and achieved the rank of E-5 in under four years.
Released on active reserves, I served as a military wife and mom during Desert Storm. Moving to rural Philadelphia after Desert Storm and while going on to raise two children as a single mom, I provided admin support for a local Internet provider (which turned me into a techie). I also juggled multiple roles at a multi-physician healthcare practice in corporate marketing, bookkeeping and payroll. I later managed a swimming pool plumbing contractor’s business handling the billing, A/P, A/R, bookkeeping, benefits administration, and payroll.
With the opportunity to expand my skills, while still managing the contractor’s business, I took on a part-time executive assistant position for a business owner who managed three separate entities and partnered with a financial industry news website. During my fifteen year tenure with GBM Enterprises, I assumed the role of assistant publisher for two financial industry print (now online) newsletters. I also advanced to editor of a weekly bank technology e-briefing, editor of a monthly bank security e-briefing, and contributing editor of a monthly bank operations and security newsletter (subscribed to and distributed internally at hundreds of financial institutions across the country).
That was Then, This is Now
Continuing as Editor of the weekly BankersOnline Tech Talk and monthly Bankers’ Hotline Newsletter on a contract basis, I launched OnTask Support in 2018 to provide editorial and virtual administrative support to sole proprietors, entrepreneurs, and small businesses who need support staying on task so they can focus on doing what they do best – growing their business!
