Lisa was great to work with with! I had an insane timeline but she knocked it out pretty easily and was very responsive along the way. Would definitely work with her again, especially if it's politics!

Lisa was very helpful. She met deadlines, her copy is entertaining and was available and willing to make changes. Unfortunately, she wasn't the right fit for this detail focused project, but I will definitely consider her for any future writing projects.

Aside from this quality, Lisa takes her work seriously and has never missed a deadline. She is flexible when it comes to fully understanding a project and how she can use her expertise. Overall, she produces high-quality content that is engaging and valuable to our readers.
