Rachelle has a sharp eye and kind heart, which makes her an excellent proofreader. She was very easy to work with and met our tight deadline with no problems. Next time we need proofreading, we’ll definitely ask Rachelle!

I was so pleased with Rachelle’s prompt service, her ability to help maintain my writing voice while polishing it up, and her uplifting and encouraging spirit. Definitely an editor worthy of her title. I will be using her services again.

I loved working with Rachelle. She was sharp, fast, clear in her notes, and covered everything from little typos to bigger issues that would have been seriously embarrassing had we missed them and gone to print. There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be using her editorial expertise on my next project.
It's been an amazing experience to have Rachelle work her magic on my blog posts. She refines my sentences and paragraphs into cohesive thoughts that are 10x better than before, and her feedback regarding intent and flow are invaluable! Already, Rachelle has saved me so much time editing my own work.
I’m so blessed to have worked with Rachelle! Her education shines in the way she combed through my story with care. Rachelle expertly balances critique with encouragement in a way that shows her heart for writers…and their future readers. Her engagement in my character’s lives and plight was only a testament of her commitment to the projects she takes on. Having her eyes on my manuscript not only gave me great ideas for sharpening up the details, but it also spurred me forward.

Rachelle is one of those people that I always want to be the first to read every blog post I write, every email sequence I draft. Not only is she quick to graciously notify me of the typos or stylistic inconsistencies she finds, but she is kind enough to tell me when I could explain something better or make a sentence read more smoothly. And even though Rachelle knows the grammar rules, she knows there is always a time and place to break them. I'm grateful for her attention to detail and her friendly editing style!
