Ms. Gerhard is a pro. She has been writing her whole life. She has published many books and articles. Having labored long and hard on her own writing process, she knows about process and the many dimensions of writing. She is also psychologically astute, extremely present, honest, and kind without pussy footing around. She has been helpful at helping me to stay motivated, focused, and on task. She is also a smart and helpful editor. I cannot say enough about her.

Jane has that rare combination of writing chops and emotional chops. She is as wise as she is demanding -- of herself and all writers. Highly recommend.

Jane is an excellent writer and was able to give me invaluable information that I needed to be admitted into a masters program! She was able to give me necessary critiques and edits for my personal statement within the span of 2 days. I am incredibly grateful!

Jane assisted me in editing my college essays. The most challenging part of the application process for me was ensuring that my genuine voice came through my words. She was able to challenge me to write as my truest self which I know made my writing so much more effective. Additionally, she helped with the flow and inconsistencies in my pieces. She was an excellent outside perspective on my narratives and opinions, helping create a cohesive piece that was clear and concise to its readers. She never forced her own style or opinions upon my writing and fully supported the final decisions I made on my submissions which made me feel proud of my work.

Jane is the best editor I've ever worked with! She was helpful with working out my ideas and making it sound cohesive. Having never written a paper this long, I found her critical eye important for the process. Her edits are clear and kind, and makes sure your voice gets onto the page.
