Alexandrea Harrelson

Virtual Assistant, Traveller

Known to some of her clients as “superwoman,” Alexandrea Harrelson has
developed a reputation for hard work, timely performance, and effective service.
Raised on a working dairy farm in rural South Carolina, Alexandrea developed
an early appreciation for a job well done. Challenged by her family to help build
the farm business, she approached the business world with a teachable spirit,
and an eagerness to please. What she has found is nothing short of a winning
personality in a world of competitive business players. Whether clients want
social media management, a website design, or a fresh look with professional
quality graphics, Alexandrea provides them what they need to help realize full
business potential.

Today, Alexandrea is traveling America with her husband, two dogs, and a
classic Airstream that she and her husband restored and remodeled during their
first year of marriage. Her travel blog, Living Bite-sized, continues to serve as
an inspiration to others who are following their own dreams of self-determination.

For Alexandrea, her success in the business world is nothing short
of a blessing from God. Faith in Christ is at the center of all she does and seeks to
do, either at home or in the business world. She strongly believes that God places
people in our path who can help us get where He wants us to be. That’s how she
views clients: she’s just a servant with a heart for God, helping others get to a
place where God wants them to be.
