Judy Segawa, Virtual Assistant

    Quality administrative support for solo businesses

About Judy
Hi!  I’m Judy Segawa, and I started the career of my dreams in April 2002 after graduating from AssistU’s Virtual Training Program. Admin work has been my passion since I was a kid. Would you believe?....My favorite game was “playing office” and one of my favorite toys was my cousin’s Royal typewriter - the black, clunky one.

Although my BBA degree was in Human Resources, I didn’t pursue a career in that field and instead worked in various admin positions for over 30 years. My positions included:

  • Executive Secretary for shopping center management
  • Admin Assistant for a real estate developer
  • Office Manager for a private duty nursing agency
  • Secretary/Bookkeeper for a landscape architectural firm, and
  • Assistant Fiscal Officer for a scientific research institute.

In 2000, I left my last corporate job. I was prodded by a deep knowing that I needed to listen to my heart and find something more fulfilling. Yes, I still loved admin work but I longed for a more supportive and appreciative environment in which to utilize my skills. It was not a coincidence that I was led to Cheryl Richardson’s book Take Time for Your Life, which introduced me to Virtual Assistance and AssistU.  I was so excited!  I knew that having a fulfilling career as a Virtual Assistant was the next step in my life’s journey!

Today, as I look out my window and see the blue skies, hear the birds singing and feel the cool, gentle breeze, I feel so blessed that I’m doing what I love to do from my home office in Honolulu, Hawaii. I’ve lived here all my life, and have worked, played and studied with a multi-ethnic population.

Thus, what I offer my clients is not only what I’ve done professionally, but the totality of who I am. I bring to my practice what I like to consider a “mellow, Island personality” that’s flavored with my other interests. These include yoga at the Body & Brain Center and ballroom dancing. Also, for most of my adult life I’ve had a deep interest in holistic well being, alternative healing modalities and spiritual development.

As I journey through life, my desire for my business is to partner with kindred spirits who value wellness, joyful living and personal growth!
