“We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you.” -- Marianne Williamson

Sharon is an Indigenous administrative professional with 30+ years’ experience and 15 years’ experience providing virtual support to individuals and organizations globally. She is the founder of DEVA Training & Staffing Solutions (formerly Virtual eAdmin) and the founder and president of Cree8iv Collaboration Inc. 

The DEVA Program is an online digital tools training program for Indigenous women with 20 weeks of capacity-building in digital literacy, administrative learning, and virtual support skills-building with a goal to become independent contractors and start their own businesses providing admin support virtually, or to increase future employment opportunities, both virtually and/or in-person, including becoming part of the staffing solutions side of DEVA. 

Sharon is ready to start a new intake and is looking for students, sponsors and practicum providers. Each seat in the program costs $4,997. You can purchase a VA package to help with practicum fees or you can sponsor the program. 

Through Cree8iv, Sharon creatively collaborates with others to bring programs and services to remote communities. The DEVA Pilot is an example of this proactive collaboration in action!

We offer HOPE by Helping Other People Excel. Collaborate with us!

MEDIA: Announcing the DEVA PROJECT


  • Does your organization lack capacity? Do you struggle to keep up with your workload? Do you see some tasks slipping through the cracks? Are you or any of your team performing tasks outside your ‘zone of genius’?
  • If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re not alone. Many entrepreneurs, executives and organizations operate under the old adage, “If you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself”, which makes you the biggest bottleneck of your organization. You are metaphorically rowing upstream without a paddle.
  • Yes, knowledge is power, however, the real power lies in the execution. We excel at the execution… at streamlining processes and procedures and helping others become more efficient.
  • Virtual eAdmin and my team of DEVAs can help fill your administrative gaps, train your staff and remove the bottleneck from your organization.
  • If you would like to build capacity in your organization and community, give me a call today.
