Rebecca assisted me in rewriting my resume and was amazing. Her prices were competitive and she works very quickly. In the time it took for her to send me my first draft the other resume writers were still trying to determine a quote. Rebecca did a great job completely overhauling my resume while still taking my comments/requests into account. She understood and implemented exactly what I was looking for. Her knowledge of job search and resume writing is unsurpassed.

Koppelman & Associates produced outstanding video and other creative work for a project involving Bay Area transit agencies. Charles Koppelman really understood his client's needs and was strategic in developing a vision for how to best meet those needs. He kept the entire project on track and delivered a high-quality TV spot along with a range of other creative materials and recommendations. He also managed production costs well, which was key since the project had a pretty tight budget, and adhered to an ambitious timeline. I would highly recommend Koppelman & Associates for video production and other creative work.

Marian is one of the most ambitious, proactive and provocative writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. While writing for DBW, she did a great job of eliciting valuable insights from industry thought leaders, identifying worthwhile new media opportunities for authors, and walking the walk when it comes to social media. Don't be fooled by her age; she's smart beyond her years.

Kaitlin has been my writing/English tutor for several years. With her help, she taught me to organize and simplify my writing. It is her advice that allowed me to score perfectly on the ACT English and Reading sections; in total, I scored a 33 out of 36! In my experience, I have had no other tutor that is as dedicated and committed to helping me succeed. She put my time before her own to help proofread and edit my essays, work on test prep, and improve on English language arts in general. Very hardworking and compassionate!

Cynthia is one of the best, most empowering, most nurturing coaches I have ever had the honor of working with. Her wisdom runs as deep as her compassion, and I have felt heard, understood, and supported by her from the very first moment we talked. To me, she is a sort of Creative Midwife and Human Angel, helping me to break through years of paralyzing fear and self-doubt in order to manifest one of my oldest and dearest of dreams. Again and again, she has listened to me, encouraged me, and advocated for me in a way that gives me hope, more hope than I have ever felt before. If you're ready to change your life in a real way, contact Cynthia. Particularly for writers like myself, I can't imagine a more perfect and intuitive coach.

Ellie Schamber mentored me through my graduate prerequisite courses in Psychology as well as my Ph.D. dissertation. She also edited many of my papers and the dissertation. Ellie is a very good writer, and she did an excellent job of both guiding me and editing the manuscript. The dissertation was approved and praised by the academic dean for its writing as well as the content. We are now collaborating on a book, and I am very pleased with her ability to understand abstract ideas and articulate them clearly. Ellie always came on time, over the period of several years, and provided me with the highest quality work.

    I have worked with Jeff for the last three years, and he is, without a doubt, one of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. As his supervisor, I worked with him closely, and he consistently delivered products that were high quality. He is always open to feedback, and embodied the voice of our organization in person and via communications (digital, social, etc.). He is passionate about social justice, education, the arts, and was a champion and ally for our students. His playfulness and professionalism made him an invaluable asset to our organization.

    About

    I have more than a decade of professional writing experience, specializing mainly in the Business-to-Business sector, with a special emphasis on the technology industry. I spent 8 years in public relations agency work in the US and UK, drafting bylined articles and case studies which have been published in B2B and trade magazines and journals in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, South Africa, and UAE. Translations of my work have been published in France, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, China, Singapore, and Japan. I also possess several years of experience in general marketing, preparing content for newsletters, email blasts, websites, brochures, catalogs, social media posts, and other marketing avenues. My clients have mostly been in the technology sector - from startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises - but I have also worked with industries ranging from legal services to cleaning and hygiene to adventure travel. The process I employ ensures that I have adequate information to complete the job before starting it, whether the client provides that or I conduct my own background research. I am also a very detail-oriented copy editor. Transparent pricing is offered, preferably by the word but hourly rates can also be negotiated.
