Katrina BraggBeing from southern Alabama, there were several lessons I learned as a child.
- Go to all family reunions
- Trust your instincts
- Guilt is a wasted emotion
- You are either an Alabama or Auburn fan (no exceptions)
- Have a bottle rocket war
- Tip a cow
- Shoot a fire arm
These characteristics were not always favorable. I had more jobs than I care to count, simply because most of my managers did not have a clue how to be managers. Yep! I was “that” employee. I was always crammed into a box that didn’t allow creativity, critical thinking or “smarter” ways of doing things. I was hired for the position and all my other talents were not needed. During my time at AB Tech, I won several awards, certificates and recognitions for my achievements and with the support I created Task Mania.
I am Microsoft certified in 2007, 2010 and 2013 (2016 soon). I love a challenge and am self-motivated. I believe relationships build the best businesses and I love learning. I am authentic and have high integrity. This is what makes me a great business owner and an awesome virtual assistant.

Web Design & Development
Dan Cropper has developed over 1000 websites in his time as a web designer and developer. He knows that success and experience go hand-in-hand, which is why he works hard to provide every client with a unique, professional, and well optimized web presence, every day.
Dan earned his Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from the State Universiy of New York in 2004. After just over a year of working in a more "traditional" marketing/advertising firm he realized that there had to be a better way to provide clients with a better product at a better price. That's why he opened Straight Edge Marketing in 2005.
The last decade of work and success has proven his theory correct. By listening to the customer and working closely with an experienced team of designers, developers, and well-vetted development tools, one expert can be more helpful to some small/mid-sized businesses than an entire agency every could.
Writing & Editing
From an early age I liked spelling bees, correcting grammatical errors and forming new words from parts of existing words. Who knew a writer was being born! All these years later I still love to write and edit,helping people create a written voice that expresses their very own intentions and meet their business,personal and professional goals.
I have a Master’s degree in Adult Education and extensive writing experience in business development,technical writing, editing marketing materials and websites, curriculum development, RFP proposals,and just about anything else that needs a sharp keen eye for editing.
If you’d rather go to the dentist than to write or edit something, contact me and I will help you, or just take it off your plate completely, freeing you up to do other things you’d much rather be doing!
