Did a great job re-formatting my resume, highlighting strongest skills/key words front and center. Ian was patient with my questions and edits. He "listened" with empathy and he was great at negotiating, with me, the best ways to communicate to a prospective employer, through my resume, and cover letter?

Melinda really makes a resume review & rewrite a painless process. She quickly understands what you are trying to do and is able to create a resume that speaks to your goals but is also flexible enough that it can be easily edited for a variety of jobs.

David was a fantastic support with the opening chapter of my first novel. He provided excellent insights into my writing habits, great suggestions and ultimately focussed on where I could strengthen my story to keep the reader engaged. His editing was very valuable, and he responded almost immediately. I would work with him again and happily recommend others consider him also.

Matt has a very good work around! He did a resume within 24 hours and I’m very happy about it. I just recently had him write and edit my resume. It was really good and I’m happy with the final outcome. I had no issues on the outcome of the work. He’s definitely commendable as a resume writer!

Michael Cormier is an outstanding writer of novels, and a go-to-person for catalog descriptions, copy editing, proofreading, and ad copy. He does his writing very well. I highly recommend Michael because of his knowledge, intellectual, and experience. A huge thank you to Michael. Mawien

We had a good experience with David. He was on time and set up quickly. Prior to the wedding we had a lengthy meeting to discuss the kind of pictures we would like. The pictures were on line in three days. The pictures were good and David did a good job capturing our special moment.

Jaclyn is fun and easy to work with. We needed logos for web and hard copy materials as well as the sign for outside our brick and mortar. We had a million ideas, and she helped us narrow them down into a design that we were ultimately thrilled with. She was generous with her edits and made sure that we were happy every step of the way. Her pricing is fair, and she produces great work. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and we will definitely work with her again in the future.

Alexandra has been my go to girl for anything resume or portfolio related during my interview and job search process! She has been amazing for editing, advice, and suggestions to help me feel more confident with my work and creating something relevant for each application. I don't know what I would do without her!

Simply put: Kat Setzer rescued the first essay I ever wrote-- which went on to win a major award; which attracted the attention of a grant organization; which gave me a grant to research the subject of the essay further; which became a book that will now be published in two months. And who did I give a draft of that book to, before I dared give it to my editor? Kat. And once again, she gave me amazing, astute, precise feedback. Kat can see when an essay starts in the wrong place; when its events would have more impact in a different order (the issue with that first essay-- she was totally right, as always); when a story's characters are undeveloped; when a different sentence or word would have more impact in a cover letter or professional document. I can't count up how many things I've given her to read over the years, but she's made every single one of them better, and made me sound smarter and more creative every time. She *sees* how to make them better, sees it even when no one else can. Pure editing wizardry.

As the CEO of Wireless Analytics and Sheila’s manager for 16 months, I feel that I know Sheila pretty well. Sheila was thrust into a position of ambiguity, and asked to juggle the role of three separate positions during an organizational transition: 1) Human Resource Manager; 2) Office Manager; 3) my executive assistant. In all respects, she approached the challenge with rigor and professionalism. She is reliable, trustworthy, empathetic and approaches her work and life with both humor and enthusiasm. In her position as Human Resource Manager, Sheila was responsible for front-line support to our 45+ employees. Because we never had a person in this role in the past, Sheila was asked to create new processes and procedures for the first time. Her excellent written communication skills made writing new operating procedures seem easy, and her verbal communication skills and people skills made our employees feel well supported. In her position as Office Manager, Sheila was responsible for supporting the office environment, managing inventory, ordering office supplies, interfacing with building management and a vast array of discrete projects. She juggled these tasks with competence and commitment. In her position of executive assistant, Sheila was one of the most patient and supportive employees that I have had the pleasure of working with. I am not an easy person to work with daily, and Sheila always arrived with a smile and rarely was flustered or frustrated (or at least she didn’t show it – which is the test of a true professional). Sheila takes the initiative to identify problems and devise solutions. She has shown that she is an intelligent person with a mind well-suited to the world of business. The financial decision to outsource human resource management to an outside company, and the hiring of a controller resulted in the elimination of Sheila’s position. Sheila has informed me that she intends to pursue a career more closely related to her field of expertise: publishing, copy editing and intellectual property rights. Based on her excellent writing ability, her editing skills, her ability to work with anyone, she clearly has the interest and ability to excel in this field. I therefore highly recommend her.
