Service Description

-- A written document is a failure without the correct mechanics, proper word usage, and a logical presentation of ideas. My job is not only to help the CLIENT's work succeed, but also to make it excellent.

--To ensure the CLIENT's total satisfaction, I communicate clearly with the CLIENT. Every concern, issue or question will be thoughtfully addressed.

--With every editing job I take on, I carefully consider the TARGET AUDIENCE to ensure the style and word choice are appropriate.

--I will improve and enliven your sentence structure and phrasing while strictly preserving the original meaning of the content.

--I use "comment bubbles" when needed to resolve with the CLIENT any issue or concern, all for the sake of ensuring that the choices you've made in language and sequencing are PURPOSEFUL.

--I know you want to receive the finished product QUICKLY. I will work DILIGENTLY to meet your DEADLINE without sacrificing QUALITY.

--You can depend on me to be STRAIGHTFORWARD, to be HONEST, to WORK HARD, to TRIPLE-CHECK the work I have done, and to CONTACT you if I have any questions during the editing and proofing process.
