My name is Elisabeth Harvey Diekmann, and I have lived in NYCs East Village for over 30 years. Aside from working in the capacity of an office administrator at various organizations in NYC for much of that time, I am also a mother of a 19 year old young man who is working on finishing his BS at City College. My true interests has always been my community and a passion for writing and communication. My life has taken me through some pretty interesting vignettes and realities that many would find unsettling, but I am a steadfast, savvy, highly intelligent, hardworking, lady who loves to organize creatively and use my vibrant gift of empathy to inspire others. My daily pursuit of detail, organization, and enacting clear formats so as to make things easier and less time-consuming in life, is what brought me into the administration at small companies. And now I would like to do that for individuals or families, as I spend more time in my pursuit of the written word. My experience is vast in terms of computer applications, MS Office Suite, Photoshop, Quickbooks, Website Design and Update, FedEx Ship Manager, UPS Worldship, and I can pick up new applications quickly. I have done international shipping for years, including container shipping and carnets. If you are interested, I will email you a copy of my resume and a list of my references as needed.
I would describe myself as compassionate, truly caring human being who, after years of working as an office manager in the wholesale décor art & fashion industries, would like to translate my administrative skills to help others as a PERSONAL ASSISTANT. My strengths lie in my distinctive, organizational mind, which is creative, resourceful, and always looking for more efficient solutions to day-to-day problems. Additionally, I have a uniquely, empathetic sensibility that really listens and hears the needs of clients, vendors, and other employees. And, I am a hardworking, problem-solver who does my best to enjoy the process and continually update my comprehensive intellect. Did I say I was painstaking & passionate?
