“Excellent in every way – Tracy is a professional writer who is also conscientious and well rounded! She was able to quickly understand the scientific angle I was looking for – and asked questions that I had not even thought of – this really helped me to clarify the focus of it. She writes with the depth and breadth of understanding of a topic that I really needed. I love the article and it will help me so much in this area that I had zero confidence about.” – JEANNINE LINK-STALTARO, CLINICAL DIETICIAN

copy-Editing & Proofreading
“Tracy is a true professional – she’s reliable and knowledgeable, but what makes her stand out and shine is her ability to immerse herself in our content. We have used Tracy’s skills for many things within the digital world; proofreading, content creation, google ads and even brainstorming for that perfect slogan. Tracy is not only one heck of a nice person, but she is an excellent editor. Her ‘eagle eye’ amazes me – she finds errors that others simply miss.” – JACOB JORGENSEN, VELA MEDICAL DIGITAL MARKETER
