I began my career in publishing, took a left turn through marketing & academia, and now am bringing it all together as a content strategist and producer with extensive marketing project management experience as well as writing and copy editing credentials
Ilene is a very talented, professional writer. With a focused, "can do" attitude, she delivered under tight deadlines with clarity and precision, keeping everyone clear on deliverables and timelines. She never cut corners, and is a wonderful writer - always taking care to ensure understanding of the content and ask questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of someone for focused writing or end to end creative content of multiple-media formats. A dream to work with her!
If you need an eagle-eyed editor or proofreader, Ilene is the person for you. My novel had been professionally edited by an excellent editor, but I knew even so that I would still need a solid proofread. Ilene found multiple small errors like typos, but she also picked up on style inconsistencies that my other editor had missed. She homed in on a few logic flaws as well. I was thrilled with her work and recommend her most highly.
