Get to Know Lorri Morin

Portrait of Lorri Morin, an AssistU graduate.Hi, I’m Lorri Morin. I own and operate Virtual Synergy, LLC, a virtual assistant practice based in Peoria, Arizona.

For more than thirty years, I have utilized my gift of service in various positions including the military and corporate world as an administrative specialist, executive assistant, team lead, executive support supervisor, contract management specialist, and virtual assistant. I have worked in positions that require me to work both independently, and as part of a team to provide administrative support to a variety of customers. My experiences have enabled me to adapt well to change and thrive in a dynamic environment. I believe in continuous improvement, always learning new tools or processes and am a quick study.

It was this gift for providing excellent support to busy executives, paired with my need to grow personally & professionally, and a desire for more control over my destiny & greater work/life balance that inspired me to become a Virtual Assistant.

When I first learned of AssistU from an article in OfficePro magazine, I was very drawn to it. I pored over all the information on the site and reviewed the application thoroughly. However, it wasn’t until several years later that I felt prepared to make my move. I submitted my application and was accepted to the virtual training program in 2004 to strengthen the foundation for my business. Virtual Synergy began operations in 2005 and I haven’t looked back.

The entire AssistU experience has been more than I could ever have dreamed of. I learned so much about myself, as well as how to create standards and boundaries, how to build a strong practice, and about the principles of Attraction. The amazing-ness didn’t stop when I graduated – this community continues to support and “feed” me each and every day. There truly is no competition here – just lots of love, support, and lessons to be learned. I am grateful for the experience and for the continued opportunities AssistU makes possible.

Today, I have a thriving practice and work with fabulous clients. I get great satisfaction from working with people who value balance and harmony in their lives and helping them to achieve it.
