Testimonials Archive

I never hesitate to recommend Vanessa to my clients for their copy writing and editing needs. I find her easy to work with and professional, no matter the size or scope of the project. I appreciate the attention to detail and care she takes with each client, including being mindful of timelines, budgets and word counts. She is skilled at modifying the tone and voice of her writing as needed, no matter the subject matter. Whether it’s a technical document or a bright, bubbly blog post (or anything in between), her writing is perfectly suited to the audience. She has a high level of technical skill as an editor as well, and works quickly and with precision. Her unique skill set and experience in all types of print and web copywriting make her an invaluable part of any project. I wish I was a better writer so I could more skillfully explain what an asset she is to have on your team!

Eugene Weekly

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.​
