“I give Kelsey my highest recommendation.”
“I would STRONGLY recommend her.”
“I will definitely use her services again.”
Many clients choose to only hire an editor once in their lives—perhaps for a super-special piece of writing, like a dissertation or a memoir that’s been their life’s work. I’m honored to be trusted with each magnum opus, and I’m happy to give these clients a fabulous, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Well over half of my clients, though, are so pleased with our work together that they come back to me again and again for high-quality editing—and I love that, too.
Client return rate of over 60%
Client satisfaction rate of over 99%*
* You can’t please everyone, but by golly, I try.
I’ve been called a marvel, a legend, and an editing magician.
One colleague said I was a Mary Poppins—practically perfect in every way (high praise indeed!). My clients say I’m indispensable and invaluable, which to me means I’m meeting my goal: to give my clients my very best so that their writing is their very best.
I love providing a level of editing that reduces my clients—generally articulate, eloquent folks—to all caps and extravagant punctuation: “THANK YOU!!!!” “You are AMAZING at details!” “IMPRESSED!!”
Here’s a bit more from my clients about my work.

I GOT AN “A”
“Good news. I got an ‘A.’ Thanks for all the feedback. It was so great and super helpful, as I originally rushed through this paper. You helped guide me to go back and rethink some of it. My professor was amazed by the change in writing. By the end of the next two years you may actually help me be a decent writer. 🙂 Thanks a ton! You’re a lifesaver!!”
