Sally Millwood launched Essential Office Services in 1996, a virtual assistant services business, and helped Boston consultants and businesses with administrative projects. After working for seven years at Harvard University (where she took advantage of the many professional development classes in software, business communications and database design) Sally returned to college to complete her degree. Upon graduating with a degree in social work, she worked in the Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School managing office operations for a Principal Investigator for three years before launching her venture.
Early on, expert transcription was a large part of her business and she launched Precise Transcripts, hired a dozen subcontractors, and managed that venture for a time until she was hired as consulting Administrator for the Harvard Business School Women's Association and that led to consulting (then employee) as Manager of Events and Operations for the Harvard Business School Association of Boston.
For ten years Sally worked alongside and supported thought-leaders with board governance, association management, membership management, sponsor relations, fundraising and development, and events management.
From 2017 - 2020 Sally supported the executives at Humatics Corporation, a Boston startup, and learned about the pitch, investor relations, board relations, acquisitions, NDAs, equity, scaling up, and working with a team of engineers and product designers. After coordinating the New Venture Program for HBS Association of Boston where start-ups came to them to pitch their ideas, it was appealing to become an insider to learn what it takes to build a successful product and company.
Entrepreneurial, with more than 25 years of experience, expertise in multiple software packages, and exceptional customer service skills, she will own and execute your administrative and project management needs.
Sally has a Bachelors Degree in Social Work from Wheelock College, Boston, with a minor in Human Development; an Incentive, Conference & Event Professional Certificate from PCMA; and is a Notary Public in Massachusetts. She is skilled in MS Office, PowerPoint, Google Workspace, Slack, QuickBooks, Adobe, CRMs, Constant Contact, WordPress, and vendor and project management.
