Tracy Noble, principal Virtual Assistant and Online Business Manager at Virtual Office Resources, has worked in the advertising and marketing industry for over fifteen years.

But before that – way before that – she played Pong on her Commodore VIC-20 with her brother and spent her summers in her homemade fort in the woods behind her home in Northern Ontario, writing stories and poems for family and friends.
  • At the age of 15

    she had her first short story published in the Canadian teen publication WHAT! A Magazine. The story was an unforgettable piece (to her, at least) about an old man dropping his dentures from his apartment balcony.
  • Tracy continues to foster (and improve)

    her love of writing through article and content writing, blogging (with Kids in the Capital), and short story writing. She is also a ghostwriter, writing anything for anyone including online content, articles, books and whatever else helps flex her creative muscles. She enjoys being a “behind-the–scenes” person and watching her words work their magic for other people.
  • Her writing skills complement her love of marketing and advertising;

    an interest that emerged while working at the Ottawa Citizen while she completed her degree in English and Communication from the University of Ottawa.
  • After her daughter was born in 2008,

    Tracy earned her Virtual Assistant certificate from Algonquin College. She has since helped small businesses, executives and entrepreneurs communicate effectively both off- and online. She is also an active member of numerous professional associations, including the Canadian Association of Virtual Assistants.
  • When Tracy is not working

    she can be found embracing the tenets of bad dog ownership by allowing her playful Australian Shepherd to herd her on their morning walks together; cuddling with her tabby cat; having coffee or wine with her husband and best friend of 15 years, or spending time outdoors with her inspiring and imaginative daughter.

Tracy has a knack for enhancing the readability and “share factor” of blog posts, articles, newsletters, general web content, status updates, and tweets.

Are you in search of a partner in your business that you can rely on long term as well as day-to-day?

    Always a pleasure to work with Tracy.  Her work is always done professionally and efficiently and she is easy to work with.  I have been able to grow my businesses in ways I don’t think would have been possible without her support.  I would highly recommend Tracy, you won’t be disappointed.
  • Megan Cornell, Lawyer and Founder
    Tracy and Virtual Office Resources worked with us for six months at a critical period of growth for our business. Tracy helped get us on a regular posting schedule for our social media messaging, implemented our digital messaging plan and worked as a vital part of our outsourced marketing team. Tracy was professional, accommodating and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Tracy and Virtual Office Resources for outsourced services.
  • Kyra Mansfield, Owner
    ...My email marketing would not happen so successfully without Tracy. She has a kind way of keeping me on track and instilling inspiration when it's lacking in me. Incredibly speedy, she gets it done FAST! I sincerely appreciate everything she does to help me! Whatever obstacles I present, she always helps me hurtle over them.
  • Megan O’Neill, Certified Core Belief Engineering Practitioner
    Tracy is a fantastic and indispensable member of my team. She is conscientious, hard working and just a wonderful all around person in additional to being an excellent V.A. I recommend her all the time to friends and entrepreneurs who are looking for assistance in growing their business.
  • Lara Wellman, Certified Business Coach
    Tracy has been an amazing find for my business. She not only creates incredible content in a timely fashion, she understands what I’m trying to achieve and is able to take general ideas and run with them. I rely on her heavily to keep my business running. I couldn't recommend her more!
  • Madeline Dietrich M.A.
    I meet Tracy Noble of Virtual Office Resources two and half years ago when I was just beginning my new venture. I knew I wouldn't be able to meet my business goals without help. It’s been a great collaboration. Tracy is efficient, skilful, resourceful and such a lovely, steady person to work with. We've only meet in person a couple of times, but I hold her as my right hand support person, who never fails to keep me on track; a real gem for the small business owner.
