    Kate was an absolute joy to work with. She understood what I needed to have done and produced three different outstanding samples from which to choose. The finished product is sensational. In addition, Kate is the nicest person to deal with. Would definitely use her services again. Thanks, Kate!

    Kate is the reason why I was able to move into a better position in nursing. She did an excellent job reworking my resume. My best friend sent my resume to her without me knowing as a Christmas gift. The best gift ever. I referred Kate to another friend. Her son was "stuck". Kate turned my friends son resume and cover letter around. He is gainfully employed and happy. Thank you KATE!!!!!!

    Kate is easy and fun to work with. She has an intuitive approach. She is a good listener. I interviewed 6 writers (1 in Canada, 5 in US) before talking with Kate and I decided to go with Kate for 3 reasons: 1- her high-quality is worth more than its cost. 2 - she leaves nothing on the table, she is going to write it out and in a timely manner; without delay. 3 - her interview for my bio write-up was so thoughtful. Meaning, at one point I said to Kate, "I was hoping you were going to ask me about that." I've included a picture of my bio. The best part about working with Kate on my bio is that she aspires to capture your story and her writing technique is so good that whatever your story her writing adapts. Just know, if you work with Kate she is going to nail it! #thumbtack

    Kate worked with me on a poem I had wrote. She was very professional, easy to talk to, and was prompt in responding as well as completing the work for me. I will definitely use Kate again in the future.

    Kate did excellent work on a 200+ page technical report for our firm. She completed the project on very short notice to meet our client deadline. Her revisions went beyond just editorial and helped us improve the report's content so that we could achieve our goals in communicating to the public.

    I was impressed with Kate from the moment our conversations began. She approached this project with enthusiasm and drive. She completed it timely. She provided content analysis along with proofreading. She even went out of her way to investigate alternate options if something she read required improvement topically. I would definitely recommend her and her work to authors looking to get their book edited.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Don't settle for someone who has not listened to your needs and goals. You want a professional who not only knows the technical business of communications but also takes the time to understand you and your objectives. Often the big box, low cost companies provide you with little substance and fewer results. Choose a personalized provider who will always respect your time, your voice and your privacy.
