About JLH Virtual Services

Hi!  Welcome to the JLH Virtual Services website!  I’m so happy to have you stop by!  I’m Jamie, the brains behind JLH Virtual Services.  I am a professional Virtual Assistant and Consultant specializing in assisting small business owners and self-employed entrepreneurs with financial service needs, social media, project management, and even some administration services.  Are there some photographers in the house?  Lucky you!  I also specialize in Photoshop and editing needs, as well.

More about me!

I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater.  After a few years off of the educational rollercoaster, I obtained my Master’s Degree from there, as well.  I majored in Finance and Marketing and have enjoyed working in Finance and climbing the corporate ladder over the past 15 years.  My most recent role involved working in the Planning & Forecasting area for a major insurance company, while implementing and managing details around a new planning technology system.  Previously, I’ve been involved in detailed Investor Relations packet creation and analysis for Quarterly Wall Street analyst calls with prior publicly-traded companies I’ve been a part of.  I’m also working towards completing my Masters Certificate of Project Management through the University of Wisconsin – Madison.  I’ve really enjoyed the different projects that I’ve managed and what goes along with Project Management.

So how did I get here?

What in the world brought me to Virtual Services?!?!

Back in the fall of 2013, I started helping a friend in her photography business on the side by updating her blogs with the most recent sessions she had finished, along with helping her with some high-level Photoshop editing.  And guess what?  I totally discovered a new passion and loved it!  I strangely enjoyed working on the back-end of a small business and found it very empowering.  I had always enjoyed photography as a personal hobby and working on the business side of this photography business motivated me to do…. more.  I have a total Type A personality and with my education and background, I knew something like this was right up my alley that I could really take to the next level to help small business owners.  I just wasn’t sure what the next step would be…

Then I learned about Virtual Assistants and what they did.


I created JLH Virtual Services by combining my love for finance, photography, writing, and social media.  Those things all go together beautifully, right?!  Maybe not at first glance, but they are all passions of mine and complement each other well when assisting small businesses.  By offering different services in these areas, I have helped other small business owners and entrepreneurs push their own businesses in the right direction.  Through this, I’ve been able to find the personal fulfillment and constant growth that I desire.  A win-win!  It was also very important to me to be able to create a company of my own where I am able to implement the work schedule I desire in order to have the lifestyle that meets my personal goals.  It’s been a wonderful journey so far!

What I love!

In my free time, you’ll most likely find me…

Spending time with my family, which includes a husband, 2 kids, and 1 lazy chocolate lab!

I also love reading, scrapbooking, photography, camping, hiking, traveling, volunteering to causes close to my heart and just being outdoors.  I am a little addicted to Pinterest, too.  I love planning and getting great ideas for a multitude of things!  And coffee… I love coffee.  The fancy caramel mocha latte kind!
