How to lead in 2018 w/ Vanessa Farino
Join the Haverhill Young Professionals as they present a morning of motivation!
Hear from Vanessa Farino as she tells us her story and how she found her way and marked her legacy.
Vanessa was born in Boston, and is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese. At the age of 15, she became co-owner of a high-end fashion boutique. This early taste of the business world sparked her interest in learning about all aspects of business and led me to pursue a career working with high level Executives. Becoming an Executive Assistant has allowed her to develop and utilize her great organizational and planning skills and over the past 10 years she has had the pleasure of working with C-Suite Executives in multiple industries, including: Education, Healthcare, Real Estate, Legal, Finance, Biotechnology, and Software Technology. Over the years, as an EA, she has become an trusted partner to these Executives and has assisted with numerous projects in various disciplines, such as: multiple company acquisitions, office renovations, business and event planning, and more.
Throughout her career she has had the honor of planning many events -- conferences, company outings, holiday parties, team building activities, weddings, surprise engagement proposals, magazine launch parties, and much more! Her passion for creating unforgettable experiences for people inspired her to begin her own event planning business, known as Events by VA.
Vanessa's entrepreneurial spirit and the satisfaction she receive in helping others led me to her latest endeavor, the founding of
Boston Executive Assistants (BEA). An organization that promotes the networking and collaboration of Executive Assistants in the Greater Boston area, BEA unites assistants and allows them to meet their peers and network with like-minded professionals. Through monthly meetings and a yearly Forum, assistants are able to empower one another through shared experiences and resources.
Vanessa was also recently the 2017 President for Boston Business Women, an organization with over 12,000 members.
