About Us

Kim Grounds, Virtual Assistant, Annapolis, Maryland

Kim Grounds created Providing Time in 2008 so she could stay home with her children while challenging herself by building a business for which she saw a strong need in her community.  A graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in Computer Science, she has 20 years of experience in the Information Technology industry.  Since opening the “virtual doors” of her company, she has provided virtual assistant services to over 75 clients – including several with which she has developed and maintained long term working relationships.

Kim credits her success to her innately strong organizational and time management skills and attention to detail. She understands the need to prioritize tasks, organize time, and strive for peace of mind.

“During my career and as my family grew, I wore the many hats required of people these days: that of employee, spouse, parent, manager, personal advisor, chef, administrator, bill payer, and more.  I know the challenges of getting everything done on a daily basis and I often longed for an assistant to take over some of my tedious but important responsibilities.  I understand—and I can help you simplify, organize and regain some peace of mind.


I will take the time to get to know you, your goals and your challenges, and strive to be someone you can trust with your personal and professional needs.  My goal is to provide you with time and, ultimately, peace of mind.

Our Mission

Providing Time will help you to focus your time and energy where you wish by reducing the number of routine responsibilities that require your time.  I will do so by providing professional and timely service that is based on these core values:
