Carrie Anderson, owner of The Virtual Inch, is a service-based entrepreneur who works remotely for multiple clients. As a service-based entrepreneur, Carrie offers creative, technical and administrative solutions to online business entrepreneurs and professional organizations.
Carrie’s formal education includes the Graphic Arts Administration program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography and History from the University of Calgary and Red Deer College’s Virtual Assistant Certificate Program.
In her previous career, Carrie was a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analyst, Digital Cartographer and GPS Specialist – yes, a mouthful! She is highly-skilled with 25+ years of experience in a number of areas including numerous software and hardware environments, the advanced functions of various desktop applications, creative design and high-end technologies and managing multiple projects, objectives and deadlines.
On a warm, spring morning in April of 2006, Carrie woke up and realized she didn’t want to live in the city anymore – she was looking for change. She wanted to live the life she had long dreamed of.
True to Carrie’s nature, she did her homework on all fronts, gathered up her two cats, closed her eyes and then jumped in with both feet! Carrie bought a 100yr old house in the country, began renovations immediately and started preparing for her new puppy to arrive – she bought a new laptop, tweaked her skill set and created The Virtual Inch.
Carrie hasn’t looked back since that warm, spring day – she’s met and currently works with some talented entrepreneurs and noteworthy organizations. She continues to expand her knowledge-base by taking courses, attending workshops and networking. In her spare time, she enjoys anything scifi/fantasy, fine art, home improvement, playing the piano and spending time with her Leonberger.
