Why work with me?

Here’s what some of my editors and clients have to say.

“Unreservedly recommend her… for a minor editing job or an entire book”

Recently I found myself with an editorial crisis: I needed to get ready for publication a large quantity of highly technical academic articles, all written by non-English speakers. However, I had no editor available, and the publication date was looming. I turned to Christina, and she was a life saver. She did an outstanding job on the editing and the formatting, getting some very rough material ready for publication in record time. Moreover, she told me she would get it done on time, and she made good on her promise. Throughout, she communicated with me clearly and proactively at every turn, so that I could relax, knowing that the articles were in professional, competent hands, and would all be done on time. Thanks to her, the entire job was ready when I needed it, and was a credit to our organization. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, and unreservedly recommend her to anyone who needs things done right and on time – whether it is a minor editing job or an entire book, as in this situation.

“Excellent quality edits”

Christina’s been with us right from the start and is one of the most experienced and senior editors on the team. She consistently delivers excellent quality edits.

“One of the best editorials written about us – out of 200+!”

Blo has had the honour of being featured in over 200 editorials including National magazines and papers. The article that Christina did on Blo (and me!) for Small Business BC was one of the best editorials written about us. Christina got all the facts correct and really got the essence of the brand and the culture – all in a 10 minute phone interview.

“No one better!”

There is no one better to give a complex project with a tight deadline to than Christina. She has proven her ability to ‘get stuff done’ over and over again. Her attention to detail is fantastic and she cares about the work she does. She also sees the big picture and keeps things in context.

“Reliable, professional, and talented”

Christina has always delivered superlative results, and often on a tight deadline. Once we detailed the nature and scope of the writing to her, the stories she delivered were close to flawless. If everyone were as easy to work with (and reliable, professional and talented) as Christina, life would be pleasant indeed.

“Can’t recommend her highly enough!”

Christina isn’t just an outstanding writer and editor — she’s also a great strategic thinker. She’s one of those rare writers who knows how to wield language as a tool for achieving strategic objectives — to inspire, to sell, to educate, to entertain. She’s dependable, she gets results, she writes brilliantly, and she’s just fun to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

“Dramatically improved the quality of my web copy”

I hired Christina to help me write and edit copy for my website.  I generally think of myself as a decent writer, but Christina  dramatically improved the quality of my web copy and white paper.  She added tremendous new content, punched up what I wrote, and made sure it all read correctly.  I intend on hiring Christina again and recommend her to all of my colleagues.
