"Rebecca was superb: Fast, quality, detailed, attentive." ---Chris S., consultant.
"I can't even begin to explain how nice it was to work with someone who is a professional. Rebecca was super responsive, great at managing my expectations and wonderful communicator. I never had to worry about her and as a business owner that's a huge plus. She was able to spot little grammar errors within my book that I would have never been able to see AND no other vendors were able to spot." ---Marni Kinrys, author.
