Service Description

I provide exceptional quality work to all clients on all projects, big or small. I pride myself on producing exceptional work, on time and within budget. My reviews tell the story and the quality of my work speaks for itself. Whether it's transcription, a writing project or data entry, I have zero missed deadlines and many happy clients.

I can handle impossible deadlines, difficult content and exacting standards. I am usually available seven days a week and am compulsive about checking my email for messages from clients. I will never leave you guessing or wondering. If you need me, just ask. If you have a question, just ask. I will always answer promptly whether it's from my computer or my phone. Client satisfaction is my number one priority and nothing is more important to me than my clients, new or returning.

I offer intelligent transcription services, not just transcription. I can clean up the verbal stutters and the false starts or I can provide verbatim transcription and capture all the gory details. I can also edit to produce usable content upon request and actually specialize in turning transcriptions into web content, articles or white papers. I take your audio file and deliver an easy to read, flawless transcript ready to use for whatever you need it for.

I also offer professional writing services, specializing in press releases, articles, collateral, blog postings, white papers and web content. I have over 25 years of experience producing...
