Who's That Squirrel?
Hi there, and welcome! Thanks for checking out our website.

My name is Laura Kassama, and I am passionate about finding smart solutions for small business owners just like you. 

After working for over 15 years as a virtual assistant and office manager within the business centre industry, I saw countless business owners struggle to get the quality of support they really need. Many businesses utilizing employees end up dealing with annoying frequent staff turnovers, high staffing overhead costs, and hiring skilled workers who are not skilled in all the kinds of work needed, or who are really just there for the paycheque and don't care much about the company or its bottom line. 

Has this happened to you? Have you been noticing that "good enough" just isn't good enough anymore? At the business centre, it was really hard to provide the level of service I knew our team there was capable of, and I wanted to do more for my clients. To realize this goal, I decided to (excuse the pun) branch out on my own.

Well, not really on my own. You see, I strongly value teamwork and collaboration, and so I decided to build a diverse and closely-knit team of highly skilled, experienced and passionate Squirrels who share the same values, so we can deliver high quality workmanship and memorably good customer service to you.

Virtual Squirrel is a Vancouver-based virtual assistance team. As a team, we coordinate, cross-train, and assist one another to provide you with the fantastic support you deserve for your business. You won't have to manage the team, as we streamline our support internally. You'll always get the best specialist Squirrel for the work, and you can count on our whole team of friendly, highly skilled Squirrels for a fraction of the cost of hiring your own full time staff. Imagine, a whole team of support, focused on helping you look good, be great, and feel well-supported.

In my years of experience, it's been a great honour serving hundreds of clients across countless fields and industries, and in an abundance of administrative capacities. I truly enjoy building great and lasting relationships, and genuinely love helping clients grow their businesses and revenue.

The team at Virtual Squirrel aims to meet your needs through innovative and smart business support solutions, by offering only the very best virtual assistance services, and we look forward to celebrating your successes with you!

It would be a pleasure to learn about you and your business, and to customize a package or plan that supports your business effectively. We can handle as much or as little as you need.

We are really here for you!

Eagerly yours,


Laura Kassama
