The principal of our firm is seeking a highly intelligent and resourceful Executive Personal Assistant (EPA) for whom no task is too big or too small, who proactively owns and solves problems, and makes the lives of those around her or him better.

EPA’s responsibilities include directing communication and information to and from principal and staff, efficient management of a small team, and comprehensive administrative support to assure the smooth running of a fast-paced office and ever-changing calendar.
