Regarding Kellie let me put it simply, in a way everyone is familiar with—Kellie is a superstar! Her professionalism, her smarts, her commitment to her work, her timeliness, her flexibility, are extraordinary. I gave Kellie a very challenging project—a long novel, 711 pages, approximately 250,000 words, that required Kellie to master Adobe InDesign, and she didn’t blink. She stepped up, even sacrificed part of her family vacation, to meet my schedule. Kellie has an extraordinary eye, as if she possesses some magical magnifying glass, flagging small errors, of all kinds, many that ordinary editors and readers would never have caught. Because of her excellence, her integrity, her capacity to work diligently on even the most difficult projects, I strongly recommend her to others in need of editing services for any kind of writing, whether it be technical or creative. I give her five stars and more if it were possible!

Dave is an excellent editor to work with. He is a great listener, collaborator and is responsive. He understood my vision and helped me get my book ready for publishing. It was important for me to feel comfortable with my editor and Dave did just that. He is open, honest and supportive. I highly recommend Dave and will continue to use him for my future projects.

As a writer, editor, and coach, Lauren is a thorough professional -- objective, knowledgeable, and experienced. She understands what a draft is trying to do and has suggestions that not only clarify but also deepen a work in progress. I trust her insight completely. I would not have published my work without her wise assistance and encouragement.

Ann has edited four books that I have written. I wanted Ann to edit each of these books because she is an exceptionally dedicated editor. In addition to being a brilliant editor, she is sincere, humble, and has a great sense of humor all of which are rare traits in any business.

Describe the job What did Mary Gorman help you with? Where was the job? How long did it take? Mary Gorman helped me to transform my resume and cover letter, and coached me on job search and interview skills. Over the course of a week, she significantly enhanced my resume and cover letter to better highlight my skills and education, and to update language and presentation. The process helped me to take a detailed look at my work history, growth and skill development. My work with Mary has given me a concise roadmap for assessing potential job matches, and prepared me for job interviews. The initial work was completed over the course of a week, but I will continue to confer with Mary going forward. Say what went well What impressed you about the service? Did Mary Gorman go above and beyond? Was Mary Gorman on time? How was the quality of the work? I was very impressed by the amount of time Ms. Gorman committed to learn the details of my experiences, so that the final resume was specifically tailored to represent me. She also helped me to re-write my initial cover letter, but more importantly, Mary helped me to understand how to tailor my resume and cover letter to make a clear connection to the potential job and my skills. She searched relevant job openings and descriptions, using this research to coach me to compare opportunities against my short and long term goals. Her services are definitely customized for each client. The process was prompt and efficient, resulting in a high quality of work. Point out what could have been better What would have improved your experience? What went wrong, if anything? How could Mary Gorman do better in the future? The only thing that could have improved my experience would have been being able to do this in person. This was not possible as we live 275 miles apart! Still, Mary maximized our time via phone and email, bringing to the conversation plenty of examples and anecdotes in order to elaborate on an idea we were discussing. I think Ms. Gorman did an amazing job and I highly recommend her to colleagues, friends and family!!

After thirty two years I needed a resume, so I ask Jean MacKenzie for help. I have read many letters, articles, and reports written by Jean and knew she would use proper wordsmithing and structure. Jean listened to all my experiences over the years and sorted out what was important and vital to resume without being overwhelming. Jean had my resume done in a few days after our meeting and resume is outstanding.

About

While I'm obsessive and thorough when it comes to removing errors, I'm also in love with the flexibility of language and feel that every project has its own distinct personality. I am aware and adaptable, always conscious of the overall tone and focus of a piece to ensure it represents you and your needs.
