As an editor, I greatly enjoyed working with Vanessa on several publications and always knew I could go to her for excellent work. Vanessa has all the qualities that make a top-notch freelancer. She responds quickly to messages, always turns in her work by deadline or earlier, and writes cleanly and clearly, with an impeccable ability to follow an editor’s directions. She finds interesting sources and has an eye for a good quote. Her consistently high-quality writing put her at the top of my list when I needed to match a story to a freelancer. We also worked together on some large, notoriously difficult projects that required a great deal of patience, and Vanessa handled the assignments with impressive attention to detail and professionalism. I highly recommend Vanessa as one of the best freelancers I’ve worked with, and any publication would be lucky to have her byline in it.
