Hello, I am Candis J. Lipe and I Launched Adminologist.com® in 2016 as a niche virtual administrative service business offering specialized administrative services for busy executives, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and individuals working from home.

My experience stems from a 25-year-long Executive Assistant career in the high-tech industry. I’ve worked in companies ranging in size from start-up operations to Fortune 500k, always as the exective staff’s right-hand support. From the President’s office to the executive management team, I have provided support in a wide array of fields: Operations, Engineering, Manufacturing, Global Materials, Services; Life Science and Chemical Analysis, Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs, Purchasing, Marketing and Sales, Finance and Human Resources. I’ve also worked closely with industry leaders in semiconductors, semiconductor capital equipment, life sciences, and medical device companies.

As a Certified Business Meeting and Event Planner, I have organized hundreds of high-level corporate events that included individual and group travel. Some of these projects were highly confidential and required strategic calendar and travel planning as international business leadership teams collaborated through complex business developments, including mergers, and acquisitions.  

Now, more than ever, there is a growing need for a contract administrative support service that is based in Silicon Valley.
