The Personal Assistant Network
Who We Are
The Personal Assistant Network is a private networking group for Personal Assistants and Estate Managers. Based primarily in New York and San Francisco, members support people and properties around the globe.
We’re flexible and accomplished. We’re keeping up with the best and brightest minds. Members might be getting their employers ready for Burning Man one weekend and the opening of the Opera the next. In between it all, we’re managing multiple properties, investments, personal schedules, travel, and much more.
—It’s a Secret:
First and foremost, we are committed to protecting the privacy of our employers and fellow The Personal Assistant Network members. We do not discuss who we work for unless the “who” happens to be just fine with that. All members sign confidentiality/non-disclosure agreements.
The Personal Assistant Network does not distribute or make available member contact information.
What We Do
We share trusted resources, job leads, skills, and knowledge. All tailored to our very specific and exacting needs.
We are an active group — with lively in-person meetings, peer mentoring, and a members-only online community.
The atmosphere we cultivate is one of sharing — resources, job leads, ideas, and skills — fostering lasting connections with colleagues. Coming together with fellow Personal Assistants who “speak the same language” in a safe and confidential environment has proven beneficial in many ways.
Along the way, we have lots of fun focusing on dynamic presentations, educational workshops, roundtable discussions, and social mixers in ever-changing venues with excellent food and drink.
More than just a search service
Donor Concierge finds egg donors and surrogate mothers, helping intended parents have the baby they always wanted. A Donor Concierge search includes more than 100 trusted agencies around the country. In most cases, we can offer a choice of 20-40 donors or 4-6 surrogates who can help you complete your family.
We help you find just the right match quickly—usually within 2-4 weeks—enabling you to begin fertility treatment faster than when working on your own. Donor Concierge can help you find an egg donor or find a surrogate mother who meets your unique set of requirements.
The Donor Concierge philosophy
In 2006, Gail Sexton Anderson launched Donor Concierge as a resource for intended parents who want greater choice when choosing an egg donor or surrogate. The company is based on three principles:
No single agency is going to have the right egg donor or surrogate for each intended parent.
Finding the right egg donor or surrogate requires intended parents to adopt a new philosophy as to how they will build their family.
Donor Concierge breaks down the process into practical, manageable steps while being emotionally supportive so that intended parents reach closure, find the right ovum donor or gestational carrier for them, and move forward with their fertility treatment.
