Testimonials

“Marie not only wrote and edited video scripts and copy for the web, she… directed both a high profile client and actors on video shoots.”

I had the pleasure of working with Marie this year and found her to be a highly creative and skilled writer and editor. On the project we worked on, Marie not only wrote and edited video scripts and copy for the web, she also auditioned talent, directed both a high profile client and actors on video shoots. I was impressed with the versatility of her skills to say the least! I also really appreciated her positive attitude throughout a sometimes stressful project as well as her flexibility to modify her working style in order to match what worked best for the team. I highly recommend Marie!

“… a LIFE SAVER.”

Before I started working with Marie, I had my doubts. Would she be
flexible enough to handle my ambiguous project assignments? Would
other assignments distract her from the work I needed done?

But working with Marie has proven to be a LIFE SAVER. She’s always eager, willing and happy to jump in and try no matter how challenging or ambiguous the assignment. Not only does Marie have a solid barometer on what readers need, she is very results oriented. She delivers high-quality work—on time—and invests herself into your projects.

As an added benefit of working with Marie, I’ve personally been able to glean tips and insights on how to improve my own communication style.

I recommend Marie!

…one of the best creative PR writers…

Marie is one of the best creative PR writers I have ever collaborated with on a project. Recently, she created audio/visual scripts for an online course our organization is offering and it was one of the most humorous, fun, creative, and educational courses we have ever built. Not only is she fun, but Marie also has excellent customer service skills and an amazing attention to detail. I welcome opportunities to work with Marie again and again.

Marie is a skilled, experienced professional and a pleasure to work with.

“My advice? Hire her.”

“Alacrity” is the word that Marie brings to mind. She was the PR guru when we worked together at Honeywell. In spite of her heavy load, she was always one step ahead — and glad to help others. Now, as the head of her own writing consultancy, Marie’s skills are in demand by diverse organizations. She’s a masterful writer, a great big thinker, and has a perfectionist’s eye for organization and consistency. Above all, I’ve not found one chink in her character. My advice? Hire her.
