Service Description

All theses/dissertations that I have edited have been received with high accolades and have led to each individual's successful receipt of their graduate degree. My clients often rave about how much more helpful my editing is than the revisions they receive from their own professors or committee members:

“I would highly recommend Katrina. She has excellent attention to detail and provides 'above and beyond' editing. In fact, I received more useful feedback in relation to my writing from Katrina than my supervisors!” -Psychology PhD

The college/graduate school applicants whose essays I have edited have been accepted into their top schools and programs. My clients appreciate the personalized approach I take in our work together:

"I was at a loss of how to go about writing my personal statement for Nursing School applications, and Katrina walked me through the process with patience and invaluable insight into what professional schools are looking for. She inspired me to write my story and let my own voice shine through, and thanks to her I was accepted to my first choice in nursing programs!" -First Year Nursing Student

My business editing services help brands and companies maintain an impeccable reputation and continue to grow. My clients love how invested I am in their success:

"Katrina transformed my business’s mission statement from something generic and mundane to a unique, attention-grabbing document that helped put us in the spotlight in our industry. I truly...
