"Rachel is great to work with. She takes her tasks seriously, reads the briefs, pays attention to content and asks the right questions. She is able to identify big picture issues, but also pays attention to detail."

"I have just finished working with Rachel on a digital project and found her to be a real pleasure and reliable professional to work with. I was extremely impressed with how quickly she engaged with quite complex tasks to copy edit digital manuscripts and was extremely grateful that she was able to stick to some tight deadlines at times."

"Rachel was crucial in finishing a fast-turn, high pressure ELL program for a state adoption. She joined the team while the work was in progress and quickly made significant writing and editing contributions that helped us finish strong. Rachel’s willingness to take on whatever tasks were needed, as well as her ability to come up to speed very quickly, were invaluable to me and my team."
- Content Director, ELA & Humanities, Cenveo Publisher Services

"Rachel was a godsend in the development of a recent national ELA program with a fast-paced and challenging production schedule. Rachel’s extraordinary editorial talents and craftsmanship were instrumental in meeting aggressive delivery dates and providing creative, accurate, and grade-appropriate content in all of the program's components, including the student editions, teachers’ editions, and countless print and digital ancillaries. In addition, Rachel was entrusted with the program's page reviews and single-handedly championed the review of grade-level layouts, providing astute and comprehensive editorial reviews and revisions within a technically demanding page-layout software. Rachel’s editorial skills were indispensable, and her omnipresent positivity, perseverance, and glowing personality made collaborating with her on the project an immense pleasure."

"Rachel is currently managing two projects for my department, and I have always been very happy with her work. On top of her reliability and attention to detail, she is supremely easy to work with, and good at using her own initiative where appropriate."
- Sarah, major publishing house

"Rachel's editing skills, project management talents, attention to detail, timeliness, and overall productivity are impressive. She is lovely to work with and manages to be both structured and accommodating. Whenever our project encounters the inevitable problem or missed deadline, Rachel’s calm and competence are especially valuable. Trust me: you want Rachel on your team!"
