Lauren is a best-in-class resume coach and editor. She reshaped my resume first as an IT Project Manager and then more broadly as a Technology Executive. She is a great listener, she's generous with her time, and she offers strategic advice--as well as detailed line edits--that helped frame my experience for maximum effect (both hard & soft skills). She brought real life experience to the process of rewriting my resume, so I felt like I was getting much more than a copyeditor or even someone who thought like an HR screener. I felt like I was getting someone who thinks like a high level executive -- i.e. the person who ultimately would be looking at my resume & deciding if it was worth his/her time to bring me in. My two experiences with Lauren really paid off, and I'm extremely grateful. Thanks, Lauren!!!

Amenah has been an indispensable component of some of my best work throughout my bachelor and masters degrees. Even if the subject matter is obscure, she is able to quickly understand the point I was trying to get across and help me find the most strategic, well-organized pathway to get my point across to the reader. Importantly, she takes into consideration the audience you are writing for (whether academic, journalistic, grant agencies, etc.), helping you tailor the form and delivery of your writing. Amenah is not only a skilled grammatical editor. She is able to work with my style of writing, not against it, making me a better writer with each project she assists on. Her personable nature and common sense way of talking me through even the most complex subject matter helps me organize my thoughts and arguments, making any writing task seem far less daunting. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Amenah.

As a new writer, I was looking for a friendly editor that could walk me through the process, and Jason delivered. He is easy to communicate with via email, and has provided helpful edits and comments on my writing that I believe have improved my writing in general. I am looking forward to working with him in the future.

About

I have over twenty years of experience in professional editing, proofreading, and copy editing manuscripts and publications. My career started in London, UK where I worked for a magazine as a features editor. I was also privileged to interview celebrities of the day and do the write-ups, while at the same time, writing short stories which were also published. Since emigrating to the USA, I have worked as a free-lance editor for a number of clients from diverse organizations, including the World Bank Group, while at the same time holding a full-time job.

UNBELIEVABLE! This is the only way to describe the professionalism, passion, detail orientation, skill and pride that Dr. Casandra Levine shows in everything she does. As a small business owner it is difficult to find dedicated professionals who would invest the quality of time, focus and attention to detail to your work the way you would, despite the cost. As a doctoral student, she has worked with reviewing and Editing papers for both me and my cohort, helping our papers shine with the polished look of an accomplished academic scholar. She has not only edited for content, but has been instrumental in keeping my work in line with the latest editions of APA style which is required by my professors. If you are like me, while in the process of studying and working, there is little time to totally commit to the details of style manuals and sometimes inadvertently miss a few grammatical nuances. Having Dr. Levine as my go to editor and second pair of eyes, have given me the peace of mind necessary to focus on the content of my research, my papers and official correspondences. Her technical writing skills, multilevel ability to move between academic, federal, and business writing and editing is hard to beat. My humble thanks Dr. Levine, and I look forward to having you continue to allow me to shine. Regards, Denise Rosier
