Ms. Halper edited a book-length historical manuscript for me, and was absolutely scrupulous in making sure we got everything right. She was also able to make minor editing suggestions that subtly clarified and improved my work, and she even read the works cited section for errors, which had to be tedious. She was prompt and cheerful and made excellent suggestions, but also asked when she was unsure about any historical fact. She was a pleasure to work with.

First of all you get to talk to a real human being! At H2O we believe attention to detail makes the difference for both us and you. Writing is a form of communication, whatever your type of business, the words need to be clear and precise. Errors and mistakes distract the reader and your message can be lost which could result in a lost contract, lawsuit or passing grade. Sounds cheesy but I loved words, sentences and stories and have always been a voracious reader! My educational and work experiences have only added to my passion for proofreading. Yes, I am a word geek and that annoying person that catches every mistake in menus, billboards, and newspapers. I am now able to combine all my loves to create a business I truly enjoy.
