Melissa Clarke

My journey to forging a thriving business was far from a walk in the park (I'm sure you can relate!). Picture this: from my roots in the UK, I followed my darling husband’s career moves to China and later the United States. Oh, and just to keep things exciting, I welcomed a daughter and twin boys into the world along the way! Amidst the whirlwind, I craved a slice of normalcy. Combining my Project Management and client service skills, I started working as a VA for a handful of Interior Designers and my passion for supporting these small businesses grew. I had a desire to help other Interior Designers discover the benefits of virtual support and for something I could truly call my own, thus MCVA, my ‘new baby’, was born.

Through it all, my unwavering 'Keep Calm and Carry On' attitude has empowered me to overcome numerous challenges, build a tight-knit team, and continuously enhance our client service capabilities. As a business owner and a busy mom of three, I know a thing or two about multitasking and organization. My secret to doing it all is… that I don’t do it all. I’ve mastered the art of delegation - and I’m passionate about helping you do the same.

Our Core Values






Efficiency is not just about doing things quickly; it’s about doing things right. Streamlining processes and prioritizing tasks not only benefits our clients, but also maintains a healthy work/life balance for our team members. Our dedication to efficiency is the cornerstone of our effectiveness and success.

We are not just service providers; we are partners with our clients, and we value the trust each designer places in us. By fostering meaningful relationships, we ensure that our collaboration with each client is not just productive but also enjoyable.

Integrity is the essence of how we operate. To us, this means unwavering honesty, transparency, and ethical conduct in every task we undertake. It’s about doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. Integrity is not a choice; it’s our way of life.

We understand that trust isn’t given; it’s earned. We promise only what we can deliver, and we follow through on our commitments. Trust is the foundation upon which we build lasting partnerships with our clients and within our team.

Honest and open communication is at the core of everything we do - internally and externally. By fostering an environment where everyone feels comfortable sharing ideas, concerns, and feedback, we nurture the development of strong relationships.

"Every interior designer deserves a virtual assistant. Having Melissa on my team has been paramount to the success (and sanity!) of my business!! Extremely detail-oriented, they approach all tasks with ease and utmost care from start to finish. From onboarding new projects to overseeing product sales and literally everything in between, I have so appreciated how she cares for my business as if it were her own, taking pride in all that she does. The support & service provided has been one of the greatest investments I’ve made. The time they save me has made my life much easier and allows me to focus on actually designing! If you're ready to delegate the admin tasks to focus on your zone of genius, bring MC Virtual Assistants to your design team!"

Melissa and her team have been great to work with. I have had the opportunity to work with highly responsible and efficient VA's. Onboarding was organized and I recommend their services to Interior Designers.

I love using MCVA when recruiting for my clients. Melissa does an excellent job vetting her team so that when we get to that point where we NEED to hire, she has someone as close to plug and play as we can hope for. Whether you're looking for a long term fit, or a temporary piece of your business puzzle, you won't go wrong using this agency. Melissa is wonderful to work with, and we've had a successful relationship on several occasions.
