Service Description

I have been where you are right now. I know how important it is that the document or book you have written be grammatically perfect and properly organized for your intended audience, whether that audience is one person or potentially thousands. I am a perfectionist, and will apply that personal characteristic to your project.

This is not a job to me...it is a craft that, when done correctly, can improve your message, your employment status, your reputation, your sales. If done incorrectly - even just one misspelling - it can ruin everything. Being fully aware of that, I will treat your work with the care and attention it deserves. I am detailed, accurate, fast, and reliable, and I am here to give you a second set of eyes to make sure that what you have worked so hard to achieve with what you have written comes to fruition.

I scored in the top 10-20 percent in each Elance skills test. I rank in the top .1% among the more than 300,000 individuals who provide services to Elance. I am now ready to put my skills to work for you!

I know you will have many qualified candidates from which to choose. I cannot speak about them or the work they have done. What I can tell you is that if you select me, you will be very happy that you did. When you take into account my competitive pricing and high level of experience, you will not find a better value.

If you would like other opinions, including ratings (which are all 5-star), you will find several on this profile page. Here is one...
