Your passion, purpose, and expertise inspired you to start your business. I know that running your business is challenging, and some days that’s part of the fun. But some days it’s not. Working with Assistant by Design allows you the freedom to choose how you spend your time. 

Your days often don’t go as planned and your growing to-do list can be unforgiving even though you are getting some things done. The administrative end of any business requires consistency, time, and knowledge that you might not always have. 


Assistant by Design takes the administrative mayhem off your plate to make room for you to focus on what matters most to you in your business – your expertise.

We work with each small business and solo professional to design the perfect virtual assistant package for you. No two businesses are the same, so each business needs help in different areas. Unlike other virtual assistant services, we don’t tell you what we do. We do what you need, even when that means we need to learn how to do something new.

About Lynn

I’m Lynn Caruso, the owner of Assistant by Design. After 20 years in numerous administrative positions, I know that a small business owner who understands when it’s time to bring in support has a thriving, successful business. Hiring Assistant by Design allows you the freedom to choose how your time is best spent. 

I love meeting and talking to new people. I have always enjoyed being a sounding board for others, someone they can bounce ideas off of and find ways to work more efficiently. 

One of the foundations of efficiency for me is communication. When a client can tell me clearly what they need when they need it, I can get it done correctly and promptly. I love to take on tasks that other virtual assistants might not have on their list. I can help with HR tasks, oversee payroll processing, learn new software programs, and help with personal arrangements including scheduling travel plans.

In fact, one of my passions is Disney, and as a side hustle, I book Disney adventures for families. So think of me when you’re ready to go see Mickey!

I currently reside in North Attleboro, MA with my daughter, Ava, and our rambunctious dog, Willow. They’re my entire world and it’s not lost on me how lucky I am to get to spend every day with them.  I love the changing of the seasons, but have a special appreciation for the New England summers. I enjoy spending time at the beach and outdoor activities.  My favorite vacation spot is Disney World.  There is nothing like standing on Main Street and seeing Cinderella’s Castle.  My guilty pleasure is binging on new shows and movies.

I’d love to learn more about you and how I can help you with your administrative needs.
