A Note from Collective Good

Collective Good selects Partners who can ease your technical, administrative, or logistical load and free you up to focus on what you were made to do. Our Partners are trusted people we know, many of whom we already work with. For example, Melissa Barnes, has already done some Virtual Assistant work for Collective Good!

Keep reading below to learn about Melissa's service approach and incredible offerings for Collective Good Members.

Please Note: Member dealings with any Partner are between you and that Partner and do not involve Collective Good. Complete any research and vetting you deem necessary or appropriate before hiring or engaging any Partners.

an organization ninja

I am Melissa Barnes. I have almost 30 years of experience in administrative work. I hold a Master's Degree in Business Administration. I have worked in the following fields: legal, accounting, general business, and many areas of ministry. I get things done.  I am passionate about helping others deliver a clear message.  I love project management. I am an organization ninja. I am knowledgeable in many areas, and I would love to make your life and business easier for you.

My proudest accomplishment is starting my Virtual Assistant business.  I reside in Georgia with my husband, where I enjoy reading, walks on the beach, and a great cup of coffee.

Unique Approach

There is no challenge I am afraid of.  I love to learn new things.  If I haven't done it before, that doesn't mean I can't.  You can't learn if you don't try, and I love a challenge and the feeling of accomplishment afterward.


I've been a Virtual Assistant for 6 years, but started my own business 2 years ago.  I love serving Christian business owners (online businesses as well as brick & mortar), authors, bloggers, and coaches.

From the minute I hired Melissa she's been a joy to work with. She takes pride in her work and is always aiming for improvement. She asks for feedback and is quick to implement my suggestions. She's a great communicator and has never missed a deadline. I highly recommend her for all your Canva projects.
