About QWERTY Services

We Help Local Organizations Keep Things Running Smoothly

At QWERTY Services, we’re here to help lend an extra hand when you need it most.

Founded by Marlene Lavin and Rick Lavin, and based in Vernon, BC, we offer services to local organizations of all shapes and sizes to help keep things running smoothly. Our services cover a wide range, including administrative assistance, bookkeeping, grant writing, and medical office assistance. We’ve worked with organizations of all sizes, from national non-profits, to local entrepreneurs.

Where and When You Need Us

We work with you to provide the assistance you need – no more, and no less. We’re available to work by the hour, for single jobs or in packages of as little as a few hours per month. When it doesn’t make sense to hire employees, large agencies require unreasonable minimums and freelancers lack the required experience, we can help lighten the load so you can focus on what’s important.

We work locally in the North Okanagan, providing in-person services in Vernon, Kelowna, Kamloops and the surrounding areas. We also provide virtual services to organizations across British Columbia and beyond.

The Experience You Need and Trust You Deserve

Our founders have decades of combined experience working with organizations of all shapes and sizes – from the Vernon Upper Room Mission to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, from local medical practitioners to Kal Tire. When you can’t trust your job to just anybody, and when confidentiality is a concern, you can trust QWERTY Services to get the job done right and handle your sensitive information with the utmost care.
