From the first email on, Anca was able to create a space where I felt comfortable in trusting that our writing projects will be taken care of with professionalism, good communication, and efficiency. Very sharp writer and does her homework thoroughly with sources etc. I've worked with tens of freelance writers in various projects, but Anca stands out from the crowd as someone who always tends to exceed my expectations. Overall: I couldn't be happier with the way Anca handles everything.

Anca helped me with editing my book “An Overview of the Magnificent World of Orchidaceae - Illustrated by a Study on the Wild Orchids of Romania” (coming out Summer 2016). She reviewed my manuscript, helping me breathe life into it, giving me spot-on recommendations on how to clarify meaning, polish language, suggesting how to ensure smoothness and clarity. She's focused and a real pro. I'd work with her again any time!

Knowing Anca for 20 years as her manager at DHL, I watched with delight her progress over the years. She's serious, responsible and even-keeled. I mentored her in project management, and was impressed to see how she applied that discipline later to her own career transition to professional writing, and to her writing projects. Not only is she a gifted writer, but from her days in business Operations, Anca has a deep understanding of her clients' needs, which is a valuable combination.

Anca produces thoughtful, well researched content with a polish that is rare online these days. She's a professional collaborator, an excellent listener with a good eye for the details that make a difference. Anca is a great person to reach out to for any writing or editing project.

In the early days of our startup, Anca helped us develop our web strategy framework by thinking through options and considering approaches with the big-picture goals in mind. This strategic thinking is crucial for a startup in choosing and executing on a digital marketing strategy. Anca makes herself available and goes out of her way to be sure you get the help you need, and always goes the extra mile. She is a pro communicator and I'd work with her any time I had the chance.
