“Since Erika began taking on projects for my company in 2006, she has quickly become the freelancer who I turn to often to help me with writing and editing projects. Erika has a very careful editorial eye paired with a writer’s feel for the flow of the English language. In addition, she takes a personal interest in the success of every project that she works on, no matter how large or small, and naturally steps up to the plate whenever extra help is needed to keep a project on track. I have worked with tons of editors over the years, and I am not kidding when I say that Erika’s work is on par with the best two or three editors I’ve worked with … . She is a natural.”

While considering a possible marketing project, I enlisted Erika to put together a proposal to edit some of our older marketing materials for brand consistency, syntax, grammar, and clarity. Erika was able to promptly provide me with a detailed proposal, as well as samples of our work rewritten to demonstrate her capabilities and writing style. I didn’t end up moving forward on the project (due to factors on my end).When considering my next marketing project, I will definitely look to Erika. She is a highly capable writer, and very straightforward to work with.
