Recent reviews

Lisa has a fresh, modern voice to her writing that we love using with First Page clients. She's great at deadlines and always completes work quickly when needed.

Lisa is great! We engaged her to write a few posts on the CloudPeeps blog. She's consistent, reliable and delivers work on-time and on-brief.

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.
