I look forward to working with you! Lisa-Beth I am passionate about great writing. I am an avid reader (Fiction, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, etc.) I love working with all kinds of people. It is especially satisfying to work on a writing project from beginning to end. For example, writing a grant for a vital cause is an exciting challenge, but it is even more thrilling when a new non profit agency receives the grant! I welcome all types of clients. The first thing I do is spend at least an hour speaking or meeting in person with a client. This personal conversation is vital to a successful project. Nothing replaces a verbal exchange of ideas and humor to establish a working relationship. Texting is fine as we get going, but an old fashioned conversation is key!!

My experience with Maverick Consultant was excellent. I’m very happy with the results. I needed editing services for my CV and personal statement for my University application. It was exactly what I wanted. Very professional!

Background Check

Lisa-Beth Harris


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Each project is unique. I have general rates. But I won’t know the price until we have discussed the details. Also, I WORK WITHIN the CLIENT’s budget. I work with all kinds of people-I am proud of being both compassionate and fair with each unique person! I also break up payments if needed. No job is too big or too small!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I talk to the customer by phone to learn about their situation. I send samples and also ask to see what materials they already have. Then we establish a game plan, schedule and fees. I write up an agreement and send to the client for approval.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    MA, Journalism, MPA, Public Policy, both from Columbia University, BA, International Relations, American University, Teaching Credential, English. Certified in Grant Writing.
