Leanne was an invaluable resource. She helped with my job search every step of the way, from understanding what I wanted and needed to prepping for interviews. She also produced an expert resume for me. Overall, working with her was a great experience!

Kaitlin has helped formulate thoughts, essay structure, editing, and constant feedback for two of my boys during their college essay write ups. She patiently worked with the boys on their essays from start to finish. They established their needed time frame together and communicated between them when the next meeting sessions would be. They both would agree where to meet, sent emailings for editing, and skyped when we traveled during the summer. The boys felt that Kaitlin was very easy to work with, patient, and able to help draw out the needed thoughts onto paper. Kaitlin made my job as a parent during the very stressful college application process a breeze! We certainly will be utilizing Kaitlin for the next two kids for their college essays!!

About

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.

About

As an urban writer on the younger side of the professional spectrum, I feel like I have a fresh take on the times and an optimistic outlook on literary functions. What I like most is being able to communicate with people of all different backgrounds and experience.
